Beyond touch

The Nokia 5800 offers choice: fingertip touch, stylus touch or exclusive plectrum touch. Texting is through alphanumeric keypad, full QWERTY keyboard or in-built hand writing recognition for really instant messaging. Whatever input method used, there is tactile feedback, or a “buzztouch” each time contact is made with the huge 3.2” screen.
Go ahead, play on its superb, enormous widescreen. With the Nokia 5800, touch just got really smart as favourite music, images and videos are just one tap away using the corner media bar, which also includes maps and Ovi share.

The Nokia 5800 showcases your key contacts on the elegant homescreen and brings the fun back to keeping in contact, enabling instant checking for latest RSS ‘friend feeds’ in addition to calling and texting.
