Nokia’s touchscreen multimedia handset gets compared to the likes of BlackBerry Storm, Samsung Tocco Ultra and the T-Mobile G1. Strangely enough, the Apple iPhone is lacking from the list, as well as Samsung i8910 (OmniaHD), while Nokia 5800 got a rating of 9/10.

The magazine’s editors reviewed the musical features of each device, the image, video and camera, plus interface and controls. Do you agree with this decision? We sure don’t…
