It’s been in the US market since early this year, and now, it’s Canada’s turn to get some Nokia 5800 XpressMusic goodness by way of Rogers. It’s actually not that surprising that it landed on Rogers’ lap since it was included in the leaked Rogers 2009 line-up.
You can get it for as low as $199.99 on a 3-year contract promo which requires you to also avail of one of their unlimited on-device browsing plans, $15 value pack or $25 value pack. If you’re not interested in the promo, you can likewise get it for $249.99 on a 3-yr contract, $299.99 on a 2-year contract, $349.99 for a single year, and $399.99 outright purchase. In the greater context of things, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is close to being outdated already considering the sheer number of new handsets including but the new and speedier iPhone 3G S that have been announced and released since we first saw this Nokia handset
Nevertheless, Canadian Nokia fan boys out there will be greatly pleased that Nokia’s premiere touchscreen phone is now finally available in the country. With a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash, HSDPA connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a bundled 8GB microSD card, it’s hard to find fault in the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. It's not yet posted on Roger's website, though, but you can view it in Nokia Canada's site. Sure, it’s a little late, but hey, it’s finally here so there’s no need to complain anymore.
