Nokia Ships 1 Million “Tubes” (5800 XpressMusic Sales)

The 5800 XpressMusic: over 1 million served.

The 5800 XpressMusic: over 1 million served.

A recent press release from Nokia highlighted one accomplishment, despite an extremely lousy, lousy fourth quarter: 1 million 5800 XpressMusics have been shipped, with the latest batch going over to the UK.

Nokia’s strategy for the 5800 is simple: release a fully-featured midrange touch-screen phone, and sell it for a reasonable price (279 euros, $385 USD). The 5800 XpressMusic was aimed at more at the emerging markets, and launched in several “select” countries such as India, Russia, and Indonesia.

The phone in itself is pretty decent: the touch-screen is a generous 3.2 inches, the camera is 3.2 megapixels with dual-LED flash, and there’s 3G, WLAN, 3.5mm audio jack, 9 hour battery life, stereo speakers, and A-GPS.

This is it! The iPhone killer. A weakness with the iPhone has been that it can’t send MMS. Though the Nokia 5800 is able to do this. The Nokia 5800 also has a GPS. I have read that there is external GPS you can purchase for the iPhone but for Nokia it is built-in. Even though Nokia lacks a few things that the iPhone has, for example it doesn’t support multi touch which most of the people love about the iPhone.
