Nokia 5800 XpressMusic – What’s the Fuss All About

After being launched in Russia, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic prepares for a Spanish touchdown and the local public is anxious about its arrival. But what is the fuss all about? We find out thanks to a neat video done by, that takes us through a tour of the phone’s features and interface. Here it is:

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be available for 429 euros and subsidized by Movistar, a local Spanish carrier. The music phone uses a resistive screen, that works due to pressure of the users’ fingers, so this will require an extra push compared to the iPhone. Since we’re in the interaction department, we must mention that the virtual keyboard offers 4 different ways of entering text.

These include handwriting recognition (with stylus – vertical/horizontal use), a mini QWERTY keyboard (vertical/horizontal), full-screen QWERTY and an alphanumeric keypad. The handset’s camera is also a pleasant surprise, although it features a 3.2 megapixels sensor, but the resulting photos are clear, sharp and come out with bright colors. That cannot be said about the photos taken indoors, as usual for mobile phone cameras…
