leave a comment »

Nokia today announced the launch of the eargerly awaited XpressMusic 5800, aka the Tube, its first touchscreen phone. The XpressMusic phone will be integrated with the Nokia’s Comes with Music service and will operate the S60 5th edition interface with touch user interfaces and sensor recognition, which were also launched today. In addition to the specs that we already know of, the phone will also have two handy software features called the “Media Bar’ and the ‘Contacts Bar’. The Media Bar, as the name suggests provides easy access to all the media on the phone. The Contacts Bar provides ability to 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.

The phone will be available worldwide beginning in the fourth quarter of 2008 (in October?) for an estimated retail price of 279 EUR before taxes and subsidies. No network tie-ups were announced.
