Nokia 5800 coming to US

The hot-selling Nokia 5800 XpressMusic that sold more than one million examples in the UK in about two months will be coming soon to North America, according to a slip by a reseller. The full touchscreen handset will reportedly be available on February 26th in the US in a version with 3G using HSPA on supporting North American networks. The phone will tentatively cost $399 as an unlocked, unsubsidized device rather than receive a discount through a tie-in with AT&T.

The device uses the Symbian S60 operating system and its 3.2-inch, 640x360 touchscreen display with haptic feedback is a first for the company. The built-in camera is a 3.2-megapixel unit, and there are two LED flash units built-in. A front VGA camera makes video calls possible. Otherwise, the handset is expected to feature the same assisted GPS functionality, Wi-Fi module and an 8GB microSDHC card as the European version, which has already been on sale in the US but has been limited to EDGE data.

    For many people, the Apple iPhone may be perceived as more attractive than the 5800, but the former has one huge defect: it comes shackled to a lengthy contract. The fact that Nokia is selling the 5800 without any contract whatsoever could give the company a competitive advantage in selling to those who don't want to be chained to a single cellular provider.
