Technical talk about the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Tube smartphone
Gadget gurus the world over, as well as phone geeks, are checking out Nokia’s smart new kid, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic tube smartphone, which is throwing a direct challenge to Apple’s iPhone craze with its amazing features.
Features of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone
It has a touchscreen that can rival Apple’s crowning glory.
The screen is decidedly smaller than the iPhone, at just 3.2 inches. But the stunning resolution and incredible playback, video, and recording could see the phone move up the popularity poll.
A 3.2-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens camera may not be best-in-class, but it’s still passable for emergencies and delivers decently sharp images.
More important is one-touch sharing of photos and videos with everyone via social networking sites like Facebook and Flickr, which is very helpful in today’s busy world.
The Media Bar is an innovative drop-down shortcut menu that will bring up all your music and entertainment options at once, taking the hassle out of searching for files.
The simple icon design and the smooth and fast operation of the main menu options will make it an instant hit with users and it comes packed with all the commendable Nokia features we are used to.
The innovative Comes With Music option will allow you to download an unlimited number of tracks for a whole year from Nokia’s own music store and keep those downloaded music files when the one-year package offer expires after the end of the year.
The Tube 5800’s stereo speakers are the most powerful in this segment and FM radio, memory card support up to 16GB, Wi-Fi connectivity, HSDPA, 3G, Flash and other such attractive features at a price of just £220 makes it a much better buy than Apple’s flashy product.
However, the sensitivity of the screen and the megapixels of the camera leave much to be desired. Apple iPhone is missing Flash and lacks many of the basic features like bluetooth file transfer, sms forwarding, mms capabilities, poor night vision etc.
The Nokia 5800 Tube Smartie is a delight for any music lover with really handy one-touch access to buying and browsing music in the Nokia Music Store. In addition, Nokia’s Comes With Music service is free for Nokia 5800 users for a full year. They have a total of around 2 million titles right now and are constantly updating it.
Other stimulating factors are the 8 GB micro SD memory card that will allow you to store 6000 tracks, support for any and all major digital formats and a graphic equalizer, top of the line web browsing features and handwriting support, which is quite innovative and interesting feature
The virtual computer-inspired QWERTY keyboard allows users to annotate things on the touchscreen via the stylus or enter text or email via the virtual alphanumeric keyboard.
This makes it a more viable option than Apple’s expensive iPhone, since you get most of the features of the iPhone at a significantly lower price than the iPhone.
