Rafe has been spending some quality time with the Nokia 5800 in the last fortnight, including a gruelling few days at the Smartphone Show. In this in-depth preview he delivers his initial verdict of Nokia's first S60 touch phone: the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Part 1 covers the hardware and general design of the phone together with a detailed look at its touch implementation. Part 2 covers the multimedia capabilities of the phone, software, availability and the conclusion.
Announced at Symbian's recent Smartphone Show, the Nokia E60 Business Smartphone looked to be the dullest of the lot, a standard candybar phone with all the usual bells and whistles. But it looks like a little corker. Ewan Spence finds out more.
Making its public debut at The Smartphone Show 2005 is Sony Ericssons P990, featuring Symbian OS 9.1, and UIQ 3.0, along with 3G and Wi-Fi support, 2 megapixel camera and a QVGA screen. We've spent some time with this flagship device, and we like what we've seen so far.
