Nokia 5900 XM specs
A Friday ElectricPig post has confirmed some previously reported specs for the successor to the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset, the 5900 XpressMusic. Other than the higher-resolution 5-megapixel camera (versus 3.2 megapixels), there is also a larger 3.5-inch screen with the same 360x640 resolution and 128MB of RAM, putting it more on par with the higher-end N97.
Rumors also abound that the user interface will be new, perhaps with the next-generation Symbian OS, although that's not allegedly due until late next year. While a release date or pricing information for the 5900 XpressMusic is not known, the former is purportedly to be announced at Nokia World on September 2nd. Pricing isn't certain, though the 5800 first launched with price of 279 Euros ($398) price.
