The Nokia 5800 offers choice; fingertip touch, stylus touch or exclusive plectrum touch. Texting is through alphanumeric keypad, full QWERTY keyboard or in-built hand writing recognition for really instant messaging. Whatever input method used, there is tactile feedback, or a buzztouch each time contact is made with the huge 3.2 inch screen.
Users can play on the device’s widescreen. With the Nokia 5800, touch just got smart as favourite music, images and videos are just one tap away using the corner media bar, which also includes maps and Ovi share. It also has surround sound built-in speakers with up to 35 hours of music play back.
The Nokia 5800 showcases the users key contacts on the elegant homescreen and brings the fun back to keeping in contact, enabling instant checking for latest RSS ‘friend feeds’ in addition to calling and texting.
