Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone debuts, falls short

Nokia scrambles to catch up to the iPhone with its Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone, also known as "the Tube." While its 3.2-inch haptic touch screen and 3.2-megapixel auto-focusing camera are impressive, our buddy John Biggs at CrunchGear was disappointed in its confusing, overcrowded menus and second-rate web browser.

At first glance, we like that stylus hanging off the thing, looking a lot like a guitar pick, and think the overall case design is pretty slick, yet derivative. It's rolling out in Europe first for $227 — expect to see it Stateside sometime next year. Nice try, Nokia, but we'll hang on to our iPhone 3G a while longer, at least until Android phones gear up.
