    nokia express music isn’t ment to be a smart phone (from nokia itself) and hence why its so cheap and has the words “express music”

    but i hope to get one, i have no use for a full fledge business phone

    I am in the process of replacing my 3rd Blackberry with a Nokia 5800. Dont think Blackberry products are very dependable and the phone software is vile.

    Guys, any of you said a word for comparison of two displays or UI!
    I have 5800, and not for a while tested BB Storm.
    BlackBerry input method is awesome!
    Typing numbers for call is more handily then Nokia.
