The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Announced

The long awaited Nokia 5800 XpressMusic previously as known as Tube has finally been announced at the Nokia Remix show along with Comes with Music launch held in London, October 2nd 2008.

This device made its first leak back in April but personally, I was not impressed back then at all. It just looked to be a dull and hideous looking touchscreen device in the leaked pictures so I just gave a little glimpse on it and never gave any interest to the 5800 (I was very much interested in the N82 and other phones announced in Mobile World Congress 2008).

But its official announcement turned the zero-interest from me into ‘full-interest’, resulting me to make a dedicated blog for it. So what has caused me to become a 5800 junkie?

It’s the price. It is said that the 5800 will ship in this quarter costing ONLY 279 EUROS!! WHOA!! It’s bloody cheap for this kind of device which rocks many good features. The very affordable price will surely give Nokia’s competitors like Apple, Samsung and HTC run for their money.

I didn’t finish yet. The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Comes with Music. Comes with Music is a service by Nokia which lets you download unlimited songs for free for one year of subscription. And you get to keep all the songs you downloaded even after the subscription is finished. What an interesting service.

Let’s have a look at the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic’s specs and the gallery. Read on.
