Nokia’s first S60 Touch device announced: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (Tube) Friday, Oct 3 2008 

Nokia as expected today announced the first S60 smartphone with Touch Screen.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (and not XpressMedia) aka Tube is finally a reality.
In the same Nokia Remix event in London UK that Nokia announced Comes with Music service and Symbian S60 5th edition Nokia also announced the first device based on S60 5th edition and that is no other than the long rumored, long awaited Nokia Tube.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic smartphone belongs in the midrange category but once you see the specs you will realize that Nokia sets very high standards for this product and what Nokia describes as midrange surely blows away most of its High-end competitors.

Some of Nokia’s 5800 specifications are as follow:

  • QuadBand GSM, and 3G (2100 for Europe and 850/1900 for USA)
  • 3.2 Megapixel camera with VGA Video Recording and Dual Led light
  • 3.2 inch nHD Touch Display 640X360
  • Tactical Feedback
  • TV-Out
  • WiFi b/g and Bluetooth
  • 150MB internal memory with SD slot and 8GB SD card in the box
  • GPS
  • S60 5th Edition
  • Full Internet Browser with Adobe Flash support
  • Video and Image editor right out of the box
  • Stylus and finger navigation

With such specification Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has nothing to be jelus of its high-end brothers. If you compare it with current high-end Nokia Symbian S60 smartphones such as the Nokia N95 and Nokia N85 the main differences you going to spot is the 3.2MegaPixel Camera instead for the 5Megapixel in N95 and N85. In fact 5800 offers many great additions that other Nokia High-end smartphones does not have such as the huge 16:9 touch display with nHD resolution. Such a screen makes 5800 the perfect Multimedia house especially for watching movies on the go and Browsing.
