Nokia 5800 is the Number 1 Pay Monthly phone from Carphone Warehouse

| June 24, 2009 | 6 Replies

The Carphone Warehouse (a.k.a. The Phone House) is “Europe’s largest independent mobile phone retailer, with over 1700 stores”, so it is somewhat, a little bit of an achievement for the 5800 to be the number 1 pay monthly handset, leaving Apple’s iPhone in 2nd and Samsung’s Tocco Ultra in 3rd. From the blurb: “Introducing the […]

Nokia's Third Touch Screen Phone! The New Nokia 5530 Xpress Music!

Ignoring the 7700 and 7710, here’s the third and latest touch screen phone from Nokia; the 5530 Xpress Music. It may look familiar to you – because it has surfaced once as a possibly successor to the 5800. But then it was deemed as a poor Chinese knock-off of the 5800 instead of actually being […]

My-Symbian has posted some excellent comparison shots of the N97 with the E90, E75, 5800 and Samsung i8910 (Omnia HD). A few interesting selections below: 1 – E90 and N97 E90 is huge, but that’s because of that big screen and that spectacular keyboard. Not the best looking phone though. You’d think the reason Nokia […]

Freeware: Stopwatch/Countdown with Time Machine for Nokia 5800 and S60 5th Edition

| May 15, 2009 | 6 Replies

The Time Machine app for the Nokia 5800 is both a stop watch and a countdown timer. When the countdown reaches zero, an alarm sounds. Pretty useful if  you’re cooking something or as a parking meter alert. Yeah, you can use the general alarm clock but it’s easier to put in “n” minutes countdown and […]

As a self confessed Star Trek fan, I just loved the rebirth of the franchise with XI. So did 10 other mates who weren’t that particularly fussed about Star Trek. It’s endearing to see any of the Star Trek series and notice that their “advanced handheld touch devices” can actually be replaced by slicker, working […]

This doesn’t seem to work with me, but maybe you can get some fun out of it. “The outcome of the war lies in your hands. You decide which units are sent to the front lines, and when to unleash the reserves. Your mission objectives range from defending strategically vital locations to simply destroying all […]

…in Nokia’s portfolio. The 5800 had sold 1,000,000 within a couple of months (3 million now), compared with T-Mobile’s G1 which has sold around 100,000 since October.

Addressing, coincidentally, yesterday’s “what would you change about the Nokia 5800?” Steve Litchfield from AAS points out 10 things Nokia realistically could have changed about 5800 XpressMusic before release (Instead of the “I would change it by giving it 20 MP with 5000X zoom!!).

Engadget has asked it’s readers, “How would you change Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic?”.  I think for the price, the 5800 packs a lot of punches you’d expect from the high-end and expensive Nseries. But as in everything, there’s always ample room for improvement. It seems though that a lot of the features that people are wishing […]

The author of this first application admits its not very useful, but as you can see from the video below, it demonstrates the sensitivity of the 5800′s accelerometer. It actually works OK too as a replacement for a dice, with motion sensor dependent rotation and fairly good animation for three hours of work. Download this […]
