Nokia's First Touch Screen Phone Launched

Digg it !!!

Nokia,the world’s biggest mobile phone maker, launched the company’s first ever touch-screen device. The Nokia 5800 is the Nokia's first touch screen phone.The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is expected to be a true competitor to Apple’s iPhone and Sony Ericcson W960i.

Its users will be able to download music from the archives offered by Warner Music Group, Sony BGM Music, Universal Music and EMI Group.The device supports 8 Giga Bytes of memory, which will come in handy combined with the unlimited music downloads offered by the company’s Comes With Music program.

Nokia’s focus was on developing a media phone, leaving the Internet functionality second. It features the 5th edition of the Symbian Series 60 operating system and it is equipped with maps and satellite navigation, 3G and Wi-Fi. A 640x360 screen is offered by the phone, which is significantly better than the iPhone’s 480x320, vibrating feedback when pressing the screen, removable storage and also a 3.2 megapixels camera with a video recording function and flash. Users can bring up the menu bar anytime for quick access to all of the phone’s features, such as music, favorite tracks, videos, photos and web. It allows users to place four of their contacts on the home screen in order to have quick access to all of their history, including phone logs, recent SMS messages, but also photos and blog updates.

"Individuals can surf the entire web, not just pieces of it," the company’s officials stated, also taking a shot at Apple by saying that they know some people who believe that Flash is not important on a mobile device.Looking to bring even more in the competition with the iPhone, Nokia announced that the device offers a HTML Web browser with Flash Lite 3. The price for the mobile phone is expected to be around $400, without any subsidies or taxes, so depending on the preferred carrier, the price might have a wide range. That is it cost half price of the competitor touch screens available in the market.

By around 2009 only the phone is available in areas such as the European and American market.Nokia decided on a rather strange marketing strategy, as it plans to release the device this year only in Asia, the Middle East and Russia.There is no doubt that the competition is finally here, with Nokia looking to take the smartphone segment to the next level.
