When it comes to music phones, people all over the world want a device that is a great music experience – more memory, loud and powerful speakers, and easy synchronization – and must still work well as a mobile phone with direct access to important contacts and content. The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic delivers on the perfect combination of play, share and touch.

Device Features

Taking advantage of touch screen technology, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic introduces the ‘Media Bar’, a handy drop down menu that provides direct access to music and entertainment, including favourite tracks, videos and photos. The Media Bar also offers a direct link to the web and to online sharing. Because the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports Flash content, individuals can surf the entire web, not just pieces of it. In addition, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers all the music essentials, including a graphic equalizer, 8GB memory for up to 6000 tracks and support for all main digital music formats, and a 3.5mm jack. Built-in surround sound stereo speakers offer the industry’s most powerful sound.

Ensuring a seamless music experience, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also provides easy access to browse and purchase tracks from the Nokia Music Store, this is not available in Pakistan at the moment. The newly updated Nokia Music PC software allows for easy drag-and-drop transfer of songs and management of any music collection.

The innovative ‘Contacts Bar’ lets consumers highlight four favorite contacts on their home-screen and, through a single touch, track a digital history of recent text messages, emails, phone logs, photos and blog updates.

With the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, we set out to connect people through the one thing we all feel a universal connection to – music. The way in which people enjoy music is different around the world. With that in mind, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic gives people the freedom to experience music they love in the way they prefer.

As Nokia’s first mass-market device with a touch screen, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic turns a ‘user interface’ into a ‘human interface’ by truly putting people first. For example, we’ve introduced the Nokia Contacts Bar, which is like a digital RSS feed on your life. By adding the benefits of touch screen technology to S60, the world’s leading smart phone interface, Nokia is taking the familiar and giving it a human touch. We have used touch technology where it really adds value such as the Contacts Bar, Media Bar and clever shortcuts from the home screen to menu items such as calendar, profiles and clock.

For the best screen resolution available on a mobile phone, the 3.2” widescreen display brings photos, video clips and web content to life in vibrant color and true clarity. With a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and 30 frames-per-second playback and recording, the device is ideal for VGA quality video recording and playback.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also features a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and, with a single touch, images or videos can be shared via a favorite online community, such as Share on Ovi, Flickr, or Facebook. Music play list song titles can also be shared through Bluetooth, MMS or online sharing.

    I am saqib from Lahore-Pakistan.
    I intend to buy Nokia Xpress Music 5800 but recent reviews of nokia xpress music 5800 is not good.one of them is hereunder.

    The god of all Mobile site and blogs, Mobile-Review based in Russia has got its hands on some really speacial news. According to the site, all the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phones that were manufactured before Feb 2009 come with faulty speakers. This has also been confirmed by Nokia. So if you are one of the buyer then you might be experiencing this problem with your speakers and if not then the problem might come soon. Nokia has also realized this problem and has come up with a statement saying that, this issue was there and the company has sorted that out. There has been no fault in the manufacturing process of Nokia, which is very robust, but the speaker supplier took his task lightly and so this goof up. But this is a real big problem for Nokia because they sold some million Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phones and having 1 million customers pointing fingers at you is not good. Before this also, Nokia’s quality control has gone for a toss and some people also faced a problem with their earpiece, which you can fix easily on your own.

    this is one site, there are many other site locating same problems, when u google nokia xpress music 5800.

    Either these problem are true? or these problems have been correctd by nokia in its production after Feb-2009.
    Let me know
