Nokia 5800 unboxing

As I wrote in my last post the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic comes closer and closer every day.  Now, I finally received a trial unit and I’m pretty impressed so far. The first S60-Touch device features a 3.2” touch screen with a resolution of 640×360 pixels, a 3.2 megapixel camera with Dual LED, Carl Zeiss lens and autofocus. As always you find the unboxing and short hands on video along with some pictures here on SymbianWorld. If you have some questions please post all your questions.

Chris’ preview on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Although I haven’t played around with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic yet, I want to bring you a little preview of it in this article.

One month ago Nokia announced their first touchscreen phone with Symbian S60. The touchscreen-version of the S60 OS is called S60 5th Edition.

On the web there are many videos, reviews and pictures of the device, but they all have one thing in common: The devices aren’t the final products that’ll be on sale in a few weeks.

In this article I want to bring you my impressions of this device so far. One thing I need to mention is that I haven’t used the device by myself, thus this preview is based on videos and hands-on’s of other people which already had the chance to play around with the 5800.
