Nokia XpressMusic 5800 iPhone challenger coming to the UK

It has taken more than a year for Nokia to launch their challenge to the Apple iPhone with their new Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, which is Nokia’s first touch-screen mobile phone and is priced at €279 without plan as of mid October in the UK.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic comes bundled with a 12-month free subscription to Comes with Music, Nokia’s music service that gives access to “millions of songs” from partners such as Warner Music, Universal Music and Sony BMG.

The Nokia XpressMusic 5800 is Symbian OS with Adobe Flash which should allow the auto-loading of any website with flash elements, and also supports Nokia Ovi service. The 5800 measures 111 x 51.7 x 15.5 mm and weighs 109 grams.
