nokia 5800

We can exclusively reveal that the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be going on sale in Spain on December 1. News comes to us from an official source inside Nokia confirming that Spain will be the first European country to get the device and it’ll be available to Spanish punters on December 1. This coincides with (and explains why) Nokia World, which takes place in Barcelona on December 2-3.The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, the device formerly known as Nokia Tube is the first proper touchscreen phone to come out of Nokia. It’s not an iPhone competitor (though initial reactions suggest it’ll give it a good run for it’s money) but designed as a mass appeal touchscreen, with a penchant for music.
We had an initial play with it at the launch and loved it. The 3.2-inch widescreen touchscreen shows off S60 5th edition perfectly, which itself has been modified for touch. The 5800 XpressMusic also packs an accelerometer for some fancy features such as screen auto-rotate and flip silent, where you can flip the phone over to silence it. It also packs a 3.2-megapixel snapper.
We’re expecting it in the UK early next year, but if you want an early taste then get yourself down to Spain for December 1 where you can bag one for about 279 Euros.
