For those waiting for this Nokia revolution, GSMarena has just reported that its started shipping! I for one have received numerous queries about this phone, but all I can say is let's wait and see what it feels like in hand.

A little reminder what is so special about the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic:
  • 1st ever S60 Nokia device with widescreen 640 x 320 pixels display.
  • 3.2 mp autofocus camera with 30fps video capability
  • 3G with HSDPA
  • 3.5mm audio jack (its supposed to be a music centric phone remember?)
  • microSD support (reputed to come with 8GB SD card?)
  • Estimated to be around USD900 i.e. BND1,100?
Using an iPhone now, this could be interesting. But, its been long awaited for Nokia to enter the touchscreen arena. Let the games begin!

Will update once it actually reaches our shores here in Brunei.
