Putting a new twist to an already existing device, Nokia has just announced the 5800 Navigation Edition.
Still looking every bit the same as the 5800 XpressMusic phone albeit now sporting a silver trim, the 5800 Navigation Edition comes with lifetime voice-guided drive and walk navigation licenses. It also features quick access to regional maps with zooming capabilities and the latest Ovi Maps which now boasts of high-resolution aerial images, 3D landmarks in over 200 cities, weather service, premium travel and events content as well as traffic and safety warnings. Needless to say, they’ve souped up this baby to be the frequent traveler’s best friend. Apart from that, everything seems to be the same as its XpressMusic twin as far as its other features are concerned. For more info on its technical specs, you can check it out here (PDF).
It’s priced at €285 or about $405 before taxes and subsidies. No word on when it will exactly be release, but it's slated to debut this quarter. Aside from the usual package contents, the 5800 Navigation Edition will also ship bundled with an 8GB microSD card, car mount and charger. The press release can be found here.
