Thumbs up Nokia 5800 XpressMusic or Tube, Nokia's first S60 Touch device announced



Nokia as expected today announced the first S60 smartphone with Touch Screen.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (and not XpressMedia) aka Tube is finally a reality.
In the same Nokia Remix event in London UK that Nokia announced Comes with Music service and Symbian S60 5th edition Nokia also announced the first device based on S60 5th edition and that is no other than the long rumored, long awaited Nokia Tube.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic smartphone belongs in the midrange category but once you see the specs you will realize that Nokia sets very high standards for this product and what Nokia describes as midrange surely blows away most of its High-end competitors.

Some of Nokia's 5800 specifications are as follow:
  • QuadBand GSM, and 3G (2100 for Europe and 850/1900 for USA)
  • 3.2 Megapixel camera with VGA Video Recording and Dual Led light
  • 3.2 inch nHD Touch Display 640X360
  • Tactical Feedback
  • TV-Out
  • WiFi b/g and Bluetooth
  • 150MB internal memory with SD slot and 8GB SD card in the box
  • GPS
  • S60 5th Edition
  • Full Internet Browser with Adobe Flash support
  • Video and Image editor right out of the box
  • Stylus and finger navigation
With such specification Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has nothing to be jelus of its high-end brothers. If you compare it with current high-end Nokia Symbian S60 smartphones such as the Nokia N95 and Nokia N85 the main differences you going to spot is the 3.2MegaPixel Camera instead for the 5Megapixel in N95 and N85. In fact 5800 offers many great additions that other Nokia High-end smartphones does not have such as the huge 16:9 touch display with nHD resolution. Such a screen makes 5800 the perfect Multimedia house especially for watching movies on the go and Browsing.

What is really midrange on Nokia 5800 is definitely its price. Nokia set a price of 279 euros that is equal to about $390. With that price and those specifications Nokia is offering a heck of a good deal.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is expected to be available worldwide on Q4 of this year, what exactly does this means is that according to Nokia, 5800 XpressMusic will be available sometime between now and the end of the year.

Post Official Nokia Press Release for Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia Remix, London, United Kingdom and Singapore - Nokia turned up the volume on its music offering today by unveiling the new Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, a mobile device for music that brings innovative new features to the mass market. Delivering on Nokia's vision to provide the best total music experience possible, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be among the first devices to support Comes With Music, Nokia's groundbreaking service which offers one year of unlimited access to the entire Nokia Music Store catalogue.

When it comes to music phones, people all over the world want a device that is a great music experience - with more memory, loud and powerful speakers, easy synchronization - and must still work well as a mobile phone with direct access to important contacts and content. The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic delivers on all counts and allows consumers to access and share content.

"With the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, we set out to connect people through the one thing we all feel a universal connection to - music," said Jo Harlow, Vice President, Nokia. "The way in which people enjoy music is different around the world. With that in mind, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic gives people the freedom to experience music they love in the way they prefer."

Media Bar, Contacts Bar - putting people first
Taking advantage of touch screen technology, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic introduces the 'Media Bar', a handy drop down menu that provides direct access to music and entertainment, including favourite tracks, videos and photos. The Media Bar also offers a direct link to the web and to online sharing. Because the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports Flash content, individuals can surf the entire web, not just pieces of it. In addition, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers all the music essentials, including a graphic equalizer, 8GB memory for up to 6000 tracks and support for all main digital music formats, and a 3.5mm jack. Built-in surround sound stereo speakers offer the industry's most powerful sound.

Ensuring a seamless music experience, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also provides easy access to browse and purchase tracks from the Nokia Music Store, where applicable, while the newly updated Nokia Music PC software allows for easy drag-and-drop transfer of songs and management of any music collection.

The innovative 'Contacts Bar' lets consumers highlight four favorite contacts on their home-screen and, through a single touch, track a digital history of recent text messages, emails, phone logs, photos and blog updates.

"As Nokia's first mass-market device with a touch screen, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic turns a 'user interface' into a 'human interface' by truly putting people first. For example, we've introduced the Nokia Contacts Bar, which is like a digital RSS feed on your life," said Harlow. "By adding the benefits of touch screen technology to S60, the world's leading smartphone interface, Nokia is taking the familiar and giving it a human touch. We have used touch technology where it really adds value such as the Contacts Bar, Media Bar and clever shortcuts from the homescreen to menu items such as calendar, profiles and clock. "

For the best screen resolution available on a mobile phone, the 3.2" widescreen display brings photos, video clips and web content to life in vibrant color and true clarity. With a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and 30 frames-per-second playback and recording, the device is ideal for VGA quality video recording and playback.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also features a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and, with a single touch, images or videos can be shared via a favorite online community, such as Share on Ovi, Flickr, or Facebook. Music playlist song titles can also be shared through Bluetooth, MMS or online sharing.

Music for the masses
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports 60 languages worldwide, which covers nearly 90 percent of the world's population. As people around the world use their phones in different ways, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers a variety of input methods including a virtual alphanumeric keypad, a virtual computer-style QWERTY keyboard, a pen stylus -- and for true music enthusiasts, a plectrum -- are all available.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be available worldwide beginning in the fourth quarter of 2008 for an estimated retail price of 279 EUR before taxes and subsidies. The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic featuring Comes With Music will be available early next year. Pricing details to follow.

Enhancing the experience, Nokia today unveiled four new music accessories including a new Bluetooth headset and three new stereo headsets.
