Well, it’s finally here. Nokia’s take on a head to head fight with the Apple iPhone is the Nokia Tube 5800 Express music. Too bad it’s missing the Christmas gift rush, because if it will make it I’m sure it’s gonna be in a lot of people’s sock from Santa!
I’ve been a Nokia phone fan for like a decade already. Tried switching to phones from Sony Ericson, Samsung, Apple, the generic ones… but something’s pulling me back to Nokia all the time. It’s just too easy to use, at least for me.
The 5800 XpressMusic (aka Tube) is the first touchscreen Symbian S60 phone from Nokia. I was surprised it wasn’t a continuation of the N or the E business phone series. Instead it followed the Express Music phone model line. Probably because it is aiming for a sweet slice of the iPod and Zen crowd.
A quick look at the features: 640×360 touchscreen with haptic response, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 3G on the 850/1900 MHz band (works with AT&T here in the States), 3.2MP camera with Zeiss lens, and an 8GB microSD card for music in the box. – specs from Gizmodo
