Nokia 5800 XpressMusic starts shipping, piggy banks beware

27 Nov, 2008
It's here folks - the first S60 fully touch-operated device has finally hit the shelves. Nokia kept up to their promise and released the handset before the end of November. Unluckily the price of the Nokia 5800...

"Currently the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic costs slightly more than 700 euro (900 US dollars) in most of the online shops. THE MASS LAUNCH OF THE DEVICE NOW WILL MOST PROBABLY LOWER THE RETAIL PRICE CLOSER TO THE ESTIMATED TARGET just in time for Christmas."


you guys should learn to read properly

rip off

  • PS

Nokia is certainly heading the wrong way. Pricing this at Eur 700 is even going to make it more expensive than their very own N-series and E-series. Besides, most Win Mobile devices and other S60 phones are more value for money. Being the first touch screen phone, Nokia should take a more pragmatic approach given that this is a learning curve for them as well as with the downturn in the economy. Its no use trying to rake in profits from this device and consumers are indeed getting more smarter with choice. They should have sticked on with their original pricing of under Eur 300.

u know why it has such a high price tag?

it's because of idiots like u all, just look at http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5800_xpressmusic-r­eviews-2537.php

the phone is not out yet and there are over 120 pages on comments and hype abt. this phone in GSMARENA alone.

Nokia saw it and say, "Hmmm, this phone has a lot of demand, let's set at 900USD". Simple economy rule, high demand, set high price to get the supply lower.

Thks a lot to all of you. NOT!!!!!!

Like i said before.. that price in nonsense.. i have preordered it at a retail store here in Sweden, and it cost me 399 Euros for the phone, but i paid 420 Euro and got a Nokia bluetooth headset as well. So 700 Euros is utter nonsense, Nokia don't sell phones att those prices unless is one from the Arte series. People here need to grow up and learn to know the difference between a rumour and reality.
