Nokia 5800 Xpress Music coming to Rogers

June 22nd, 2009

The Nokia 5800 XM is coming to Rogers.

It’s the first Nokia touch screen S60 device to launch in Canada.

It comes with a 3.2″ 360×640 display and has stylus or finger input. While I’m not a fan of Touch screen devices that require stylus input Nokia is going to include a stylus that kind of looks like a guitar pick (cute), there’s also a more regular looking stylus that fits into the phone.

You also get a 3.2 autofocus megapixel camera, stereo speakers and included 8GB micro SDHC card.

I played with a 5800XM with Rogers firmware. Rogers includes their new UrMusic music store application. I tried launching it… let’s just say the regular Nokia music player launched much more quickly. Another thing I noticed was MS Exchange support – I’m not 100% sure if it is included by default or if someone put it on.

Price will be $199.99 on a 3 year, kinda expensive if you ask me.
