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 5800 XpressMusic is still far from the 279 euro that Nokia promised when they officially announced the phone.

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.

For those who might have missed what the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is about here comes a short list of its highlights. The first S60 touchscreen handset packs a 3.2" screen of the exciting widescreen resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. A 3.2 megapixel autofocus shooter and VGA video at 30 fps are the imaging assets. There's quad-band GSM support and 3G with HSDPA. Some of the other extras include: GPS, 3.5mm standard audio jack, TV-out and a microSD card slot. An ambitious music offering, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will come with 8GB microSD card in the retail package and stereo surround speakers.
