Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Officially Reaches US Shores

February 27, 2009 in Nokia Phone News

The big news today is the official release of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia’s first full touch-screen handset, in the USA. This means you’ll be able to find it in the two Flagship stores in Chicago and New York, NokiaUSA.com (even though it’s only a preorder right now), and other fine independent retailers at a retail price of $399.

The 5800 XpressMusic is a touch-screen phone for the masses, with a couple crucial differences:

1) It actually has a decent feature-set.
2) It’s a smartphone.

Here’s the 5800 XpressMusic in a one-line nutshell:

3.2″ touch-screen, 8GB microSD, 3.5mm jack, stereo speakers, 3.2 megapixel camera (Carl Zeiss), 30 FPS video, 9 hours talk time, A2DP, 3G, WLAN, A-GPS, proximity sensor.

It’s a pretty impressive list in itself.

However, is the retail price of $399 a little too high for our ordinary users, a contract one may be a better choice.
