Nokia 5800 XpressMusic ships in the UAE, Jordan and Saudi Arabia in December ’08


I had my first chance to touch the Nokia XpressMusic at the Nokia Dead Sea MENA event. I will try to share my experience with it later on. But it has just been announced that device will make its way to the stores in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and, yes, Jordan, in December. The original launch plan was to only start in the UAE, but Nokia decided to expand the launch territory.

Pricing will be around 279 Euros.

  1. eSanctorium » Blog Archive » [UPDATE] Middle east release of the Nokia 5800 aka “The Tube” Says:

    [...] Now the thing that struck me was at the Nokia concept store. They knew what i was talking about, but the guy said there was no official word on the middle east release of this phone. Off the record, he told me within the next two weeks. If a few of you read my last post on the Nokia 5800, i mentioned that the sales person at Jumbo Electronics (MOE) told me an approximate date of “within the first 2 weeks of November 2008“. A friend of mine told me to check out this other website called 360east that further disregards any proposed speculation of release dates given here and says it will be launched in December 2008.

    I think Nokia 5800 is all set to to be unleashed in UAE on December. I went to Axiom (City Centr, Shj) yesterday, they even have a holder set ready for it..!! I saw it myself. I gave them my card, booked a Nokia 5800 black, and they promised me that they will let me know the moment it lands there…May be you guys should also do the same..This babe seems to be a hotcake..!!

    Hello Jordan

    if your asking (how can i get Nokia 5800 in Jordan ?)

    you can buck this phone in Jordan … and as soon as they bring it to Jordan … you can go get it !

    the price is 255JD (proximity-360$ US dollars)

    if you want one : take your ID card + 55 JD or 255 JD
    they will give you a nice orange card witch MUST HAVE (Golden) sign on it!...
    (Golden = The warranty Of Nokia in jordan)

    you will trade the Orange card with the actual phone when you get a call and visit the Nokia shop where you signed in … after you finish your payment of the phone if you already didn’t !
    (255 JD is final price Don’t worry !)

    from – Amman – city mall – and some other places in the capital

    the sales person told me bucking cards are limited maybe it is

    it has commercials on ( news paper + Radio + mobile stores doors )

    the phones will be here in 2 – 3 weeks(sales man told me this)

    sorry for my poor English

    Hi, I bought 5800 XpressMusic yesterday (7 Dec 2008) from Carrefour (Shindaga) in Dubai for Dhs 1409.00 (US$ 384.0) and I also got a Bluetooth headset free! In Bur Dubai souk, it was Dhs 1470.00. So careful if you are buying from the Souk, it is a bit more expensive. I am very happy with it. It has amazing screen resolution and looks great. Good luck!

  25. mobilephoneonly Says:

    I am a Nokia fan and got my 5800 as soon as it’s available in the market, so here’re some tips to use it. Do remember to turn the GPS, Wi-fi down if you are in no need for them, as they are reall power killers. You will run out power soon. Or if you’re a heavy user, then you should as well buy another battery.

    I have uncovered my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic cell being the finest general I’ve owned. Just desire it had a slide out qwerty keyboard! Anyway, it doesn’t so ample is enough. A whole lot of persons whine in regards to the camera, it does suck, but it is not that critical to me-I have a excellent Canon SD950 digital camera if I want pics. I am actually please with how customizable it is and all of the issues I can do with it. Demands charging pretty much every day when used a fair bit. Thinking about debranding it. Rogers (Canada) keeps issues quite locked down and also the highest fw I have been ready to upgrade to is v30 (one thing like that cannot recall the exact quantity in the moment). Sounds like v40 has some good characteristics I am missing out on.Well, glad I discovered this forum, I hope to learn a good deal more about what I can perform with my cell phone.
