Can the Nokia 5800 beat the iPhone? 5 reason why not
With Nokia’s Xpress Tube coming out the chances are it won’t stand up to the might of the Apple iPhone and will end up just another music smartphone much like all the rest. Why? Well here’s five reasons why Nokia won’t better the Apple iPhone.
1: Previous attempt by Nokia to push out a decent touch-screen mobile phone have been less than successful. Up until now the only true touch-screen Nokia has produced is the 7710, and currently Nokia lists 108 handsets on their website none of which is a touch-screen.
2: Nokia goes it along with their Tube with no other partners, so no “fresh blood” to help means Nokia will be stuck with the S60 platform and their own manufacturer’s ways of doing things.
3: Nokia is bound to dilute the value of their Tube; Nokia will not be in a position to focus exclusively on one phone, leaving it to the networks and affiliates to push it over to their clients.
4: Nokia’s 5800 will probably become available for Â£40.00 on contracts which undoubtedly means that it will probably be only sold to the same tiny portion of mobile users that the Apple iPhone is already targeting. The 5800 will probably trickle into the mainstream and end up too late to tackle the giant the iPhone has become.
5: The Nokia 5800 Tube isn’t really that much different to the rest of the market, the Comes with Music give access to music, same as iTunes, and Amazon so nothing really different or groundbreaking.
So all in all, the big bad Nokia Tube isn’t that new is it?
