Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic Starts Shipping

Originally code-named the Tube, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic touch-screen midrange smartphone has officially started shipping to select countries, according to a Nokia press release.

First Nokia Tube Press Pic Surfaces

So it looks like the first ever Tube/5800 XpressMusic press photo surfaced today from a random Czech site. I can’t read the page for jack, except for the words “Symbian S60 Taco.” Taco?
