Now for my personal opinions:

Please, please don't waste time comparing this to the iPhone. This has got far more features, superior hardware and different touchscreen technology. If you're an Apple fanboy don't ruin this deal thread with flamewares about how much better Apple is at baking cakes than Nokia is.

Also, this is not officially an iPhone 'rival' as it was in development before the iPhone. But since this is a touchscreen handset aimed at the music demographic it is only natural for it to be compared.

The price of this handset is fantastic, even without Quidco. Especially for a new Nokia handset with the latest technology. I don't think there has ever been a Nokia Symbian based smartphone that has been launched with a simfree price of sub £350.

In fact, I preordered this initially from Yes Asia for £378. Yes even that price I was amazed with. And then I cancelled this order when I found mobilefun retailer offering it for £275. I will eat my hat if you'll find this cheaper than £249 anywhere else. Prices for it elsewhere ranges from £275 and £549.

Im a bit of an apple fanboy but i would say that this is a bargain for a new phone. Good spot im quite tempted!
#3
Gona order one, was wating for a good price

WOW

Was so tempted with 320 on ebay
#4
It's a good price for the phone :)

However, it probably won't generate much heat since it is pre-order ( 23rd February 2009)

An Iphone would eat this for breakfast - this isn't a patch on the Iphone and anyone who says it is clearly has no idea what they are talking about.

Loads of money and not available for another 6 weeks.

Not voting hot or cold as the price stated may be good compared to other sellers.

Ive had a 2G and ive got a 3G iPhone (which i like), and im not convinced it would eat it for breakfast. Anyone seen any reviews for the nokia

yeah, I'd actually paid for this 3 times! I even had my bank phone me thinking it was fraud lol.

firstly via yesasia 378, then ebay for 300, then mobilefun for 275.

I really dont want this thread to be a war against iPhone and Nokia. At the end of the day if you like Apple and iTunes then get the iPhone.

If you're a latest gadget freak with a budget then buy the Nokia 5800.

If you're the latest gadget freak without a budget then wait for the N97 (which will be at least £450 sim free and not free on any contracts less than £50 for 18 months).

The preorder date has been set to 23rd Feb but a Nokia insider tells me it is actually due earlier then that (Feb 1st, my birthday hehe)

Thing is, if you do want this phone I suggest you preorder it now, as you will be waiting longer than 23rd of Feb.

This is a deal site, not a technology website, why refuse to vote hot for something that is obviously by far the cheapest anywhere else??

Btw you're talking ****, name me one thing the iphone can do that the 5800 can't. In fact everything the iPhone does was achieved by smartphones 3 years prior.

Good price for a phone that doesn't need a top up charge twice a day if you are a heavy user. (unlike a certain product from company A)

good question, I would have thought this would have been comeswithmusic or a comeswithmusic option would have been available. Though Nokia may just offer a comeswithmusic version of the 5800 for contract customers, to keep the networks happy.

Guys just wait a little u will get this very cheap may be something like £150 ....
a new phone is expersive because of its demand..only 3 months will bring its price down..

Or you could go to the Nokia Shop on Regents St on 23/1 and buy one over the counter.
#19
For me, the iphone and any touch phone such as this are oversized, way too big. Can't get very excited about a gadget anyway, but the iPhone is a real geeks dream, this Nokia will be a bit more for normal people I think.

However, regarding this deal, the Nokia shop is always the most expensive place to buy a Noka. By the time Feb 23 comes round, discounters will be undercutting them. As an example, Play.com do the N85 for £379 compared to the £405 on Nokia store. Nokia 6600 Slide, £179 at Play.com, £219 at Nokia store.
#20
or you could have one arrive on the same day without having to queue in the cold.

No i'm a Symbian and smartphone fanboy.

Nokia N95 was fantastic, N96 was an absolute joke. Should have been called the N95i, certainly not a completely new model. The pricing of the N96 is also an absolute joke, even on contracts, especially for something that essentially a minor update to the N95 8GB
#21
Good deal, but I'm looking for the N85. This IS as hard phone to find any 'hot' deals for right now!

Nokia's rival to the Apple iPhone is the Nokia N97

Nokia's rival to the Apple iPhone is the Nokia N97


The N97 is more a business type smartphone rivalling the Xperia X1, the iPhone is more a of gadget geek iPoddy sort of thing with music. As the 5800 is ExpressMusic it would be a closer thing to the iPhone than the Qwerty equipped N97.

off the top of my head as ive been looking at getting a new phone and have been checking out the iphone, I do like the look of it and size of the screen. but the iphone 3g only has 2mp camera, no flash, no video recording, no bluetooth to send or receive songs, videos, etc. no mms, no copy and paste and a poor battery (well worse than this) and to top it off you have to use itunes and pay for apps..... oh and it cant play flash videos from the internet btw whilst the 5800 beats the iphone on all the above, best thing about iphone is the look and UI. and you have to use o2 for iphone unless you want to get it jailbroken. Nokia have also stated that this aint aimed at going against the iphone, I think they're leaving that upto the N97
#25
the things is though, if people are worried about the phone being sold for cheaper nearer to launch all they have to do is cancel the order. And if you want to think it will get cheaper a few months later then why would you ever buy a phone? You'd just spend all your life waiting for it to get cheaper
#27
Be a little obejective people and stop worshipping steve jobs.

The iPhone IS the best web browsing device on the market - there is no doubt about that. However when it comes to everything else it's pretty **** - lets be honest!

This device is probably not as good as the iPhone - however you can get tons of applications for it, like TomTom (I assume it's compatible with this version of Symbian?).

For a purely web browsing device and making calls - the iPhone wins, by miles.
For a device thats good at everything - get the 5800.

And at this price its £100+ less expensive than the iPhone 3G on PAYG and more than half as expensive on contract!
#28
It seems that Play.com are selling the red version of the phone for a way hiked up price of £449.99. Thats £200 above nokia's rrp!!! :x

So if youre one of those people who has to get everything before everyone else. Here is youre chance.

However, £200 extra just to get it a month and a half before everyone else; its just not for me :roll:

NB. The black and blue versions on play.com do not have stock

Nokia has 3.2 mp camera with flash, iphone doesnt. Nokia has video recording at 30fps, Iphone doesnt (unless JB'd and then only 15fps), Nokia will be cheaper (TBC), iphone more expensive. Nokia sound quality on speakers way way better then iphone. Nokia can mms, iphone cant (unless JB'd and then its dodgy if it works correctly) Nokia can send pics etc by bluetooth, Iphone cant. Battery life on nokia much better too. Plus point for Iphone is that it uses a capacitive touchscreen whereas the nokia uses resistive. Capacitive being more sensitive

Incidentally I own an iphone (JB) and not a Nokia, so would like to think I do know what I am talking about. Looking at the specs may consider a change of phone
#30
i keep thinking Nokia has made a mistake, because £249 sounds like pennies for this phone....who knows
#31
I went into the carphone warehouse the other week looking for this as all the press releases and that says it was due early 2009. The guy said yeah we had a Nokia guy in yesterday showing us the phone and it should be out soon, but told me the IPhone was better. Then went on to list all the things IPhone couldn't do that the Nokia could, namely that you have to send/receive pictures by email on the iphone, you couldn't forward texts on the iphone, the camera wasn't amazing etc etc. Then he said we have the IPhone in now to take away would you like it?
I was shocked after his complete thrashing of it pointing out its short comings even though he had one himself and said it was the best phone in the shop!
I wanted to compare this with the IPhone, Sony X1 when it comes out, but having seen the N97, might be worth the wait.
However this should come out cheaper again on Pay And Go a lot more subsidised than £249 surely?
Saying that i nearly ordered it when i received the pre-order email this morning! ha!
#32
The X1 is cool!!!! However windows lets it down.

if X1 ran Android them OMG it would be brilliant. At the moment people have managed to get android running on it but not properly

This Nokia phone has the ability to play back flash video directly (like youtube) from within the web browser, which is something the iphone cannot do.
#34
I believe this also has fm radio. Apple must be worried this aint even the iphone killer... nokia have got the N97 lined up for that....

Loads of heat - . although this is not a discount price, this is a seriously good S60 phone for the money.

Until Nokia decides to make them much MORE responsive and fast and a better web browsing experience I won't be buying it - pointless if the flash is pathetically slow.

Sure this has more features - but the web browsing experience on the iPhone is second to none.

If the N97 has a 500Mhz+ processor like the iPhone and a dedicated graphics adapter, I'm sold and I will be buying - until then I'll be looking more towards the Android based handsets.

I certainly won't be buying an iPhone, I'm far too aquainted with my phone being able to forward text messages, receive mms and take decent videos - which a phone over 3 years old can do.

Nokia are loosing their touch and I'm happy the iPhone came out - it gave the rest of the phone manufacturers a well deserved kick up the backside; I still think they need another one as NONE of them have built anything to rival the iPhone; I hope the N97 is an iPhone killer, if it has a fast processor and dedicated graphics the iPhone will be dead in the water. And if the N97 also ships with Andriod as an optional platform - then I can safely say goodbye iPhone. I just hope Nokia gives the open source community the correct knowledge to be able to put Android on the N97 themselves - unlikely but possible, afterall Andriod is open source and should be developed by the community.

Not that I want the iPhone to go down under - in fact quite the opposite the longer Apple stays in the market the better the competition will need to be to.

Just have to wait and see how this pans out.

BTW this is going to be FREE on contract - extremely cheap at this price!

sorry, how do you know that this is slow - do you have one ?
The E71 is very fast, I presume this is the same.
opera on the Nokia is just as good as iphone browser.

Loosing their touch ? the 6300, N95, 6500, E71, etc. appear to be best sellers!

The iphone is not a pda, has no uncontrolled software library, removable storage, replaceble battery or even copy and paste.
The iphone is a great phone for people who want what what it does, but it doesn't compete with WM or s60 IMHO.

Nokia is positioning this as a music phone and competition to the other touch devices on the market. a component of iphone sales perhaps but not a stylish competitor. For its price and spec. i would say the 5800 is peerless.

No doubt there will be more expensive metal Nseries variants soon, but the 5800 presses my buttons.

This 5800 has the same processor as the Nokia 6120 - 369Mhz, hence why I think this will be slow, i've been trying to find out about the performance but can't seem to find any reviews on this - in particular I am interested in webpage rendering speed, I will have to see and use one in the flesh - however this slow processor and the lack of H/W acceleration leads me to believe it will be slow. I do hope however that I am wrong.

Opera is good on the Nokia but has not been updated for quite some time - it is still at version 8.65, and it IS slow.


Loosing their touch ? the 6300, N95, 6500, E71, etc. appear to be best sellers!


The 6300 and 6500 are not smartphones as for the E71 - I don't know, I didn't say every single phone is slow; on average most nokia phones are slow - not enough to stop you buying them but enough to be a little annoying after a little while.

iPhone is **** for everything but web browsing, music and user interface. And it certainly can't compete with S60.

For the price - this is an absolute bargain - i mean a real bargain, however I would still have liked a faster processor or a dedicated 3D chipset and be willing to pay a little more for a faster experience (I'm still assuming it is slow), seems such a shame that the processor is the same as a measly 6120's and on such a large high quality screen.

Don't get me wrong Nokia make the best phones - I have always had Nokia's, I just want the N97 to be a big dissapointment. The N97 is being advertised as a multimedia computer - I just hope it can render webpages as fast as my computer (or thereabouts).
#39

T- I just hope it can render webpages as fast as my computer (or thereabouts).


I agree, although I don't quite follow why you want the N97 to fail ;-)

Nokia has generally picked CPUs slower then the WM crowd as it is concerned about battery performance. I have had many WM devices, and none have lasted beyond 2 days, except for some earlier candybar smartphones.

I think the balance that Nokia picks is normally good. I agree the iphone is mostly instanteous (I had one of these as well) although the occasional WM device is as well, the HTC Tytn and Tytn II are renowned for their slickness (I can personally attest here), however the HTC Diamond is a dogs breakfast. no one quite knows why, whether its hardware or software.

WM is essentially a framework and MS lets companies put their own shell in. This is a risk as some companies produce unreliable guff (e.g. i-mate, ubiquio), some are hit and miss (e.g. HTC) and others produce reliably solid stuff (e.g. Asus, Samsung, bar the omnia).

Nokia and iphone control all the software. Nokia has had some pigs breakfasts.
In general, its v1 firmwares for s60 phones are bugged to some degree or another. The 5800 seems to be better then most. The biggest issue I have seen, scanning user feedback, is a hardware issue with the speaker. I guess I am running early adopter risk, but for this price I thought I would go for it!

In terms of beng as fast and flexible as a PC, don;t hold your breath. I have my netbook for that.

Nah pal I don't want the N97 to fail! I'm just concerned it might if they do the same thing they did with the Nokia N96, and put a slower CPU inside it and no dedicated 3D.

In terms of beng as fast and flexible as a PC, don;t hold your breath. I have my netbook for that.


Thats asking too much, however I would like the N97 to render webpages quickly - as fast as the iPhone, that's all I want, Nokia delivers on all parts - camera, features, GPS, connectivity etc. except for web rendering speed, which is down to CPU performance. I'm waiting eagerly for the N97 specs - I really hope the CPU is fast.

If you do get the 5800 do let me know about the web rendering speed.
