At a press even today, cell phone giant Nokia officially announced the 5800 XpressMusic, formerly referred to as the ‘Tube’.
The 5800 is a touchscreen phone running the latest version of Nokia’s Symbian operating system, S60 5th Edition (or S60 Touch) and will include:
- Support for Quad-band GSM with 850/1900 WCDMA, Quad-band GSM with 900/2100 and Quad-band GSM with no 3G
- 3.2 inch touchscreen display, 640 x 360 with tactile feedback
- 3.2 megapixel camera with Zeiss optics, able to record video at 30fps
- 1320 mAh battery
- Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
- Stereo speakers
- Proximity sensor
- Available in black, red and blue
Sounds pretty solid but was hoping for a little more.
Look for it to be available later this year for without Nokia’s Comes with Music service for just under $400, then a version that includes Comes with Music will be coming sometime next year.
