Well, the webcast didn’t seem to work out for me but I got some bits and pieces of information on the new Nokia phone from other web sites as I usually do 😉
So here it is, the Nokia XpressMusic 5800 will feature a 3.2 inch touch screen with an HD resolution of 640 x 360. The unit will be able to record 30 fps videos and take great pictures thanks to the Carl Zeiss 3.2 Mpix camera with flash.
Specs also include stereo Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, a-GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, and TV out! All of this will be running on the latest version of the S60 operating system (version 5).
Nokia will soon be revealing their new “Tube” phone to the world. The launch is scheduled for 5:30 PM UK Time (that’s 12:30 PM EDT-NY time) and will take place in London.
It seems that the phone releases (iPhone, G1, Nokia, HTC) are now all called “special events” and “partys”. Nokia’s calling their event: “Nokia Remix London”.
You will be able to watch the live event directly on their website are they are transmitting live over the web.
Nokia’s long overdue touch screen cell phone is due to launch at a London press event on October 2nd.
The symbian OS driven touch screen phone (code name “Tube”) will be Nokia’s first touch screen cell phone device to hit the market. Knowing Nokia, this phone will be great and will probably be flawless like most of their products.

In an effort not to loose too much market share to Nokia’s Come With Music service, Sony Ericsson announced a new service called PlayNow.
This service will be available at first only in the UK and will make it’s way around other global markets by 2009. From cNet: “Sony Ericsson will eventually offer users 5 million songs, which will be wrapped in digital rights management software, and keep them for the length of their contract. After their contract ends, the company will allow them to keep “a number” of DRM-free songs.”
