Nokia's Rival for the iPhone Hits AT&T

Nokia (NYSE: NOK)’s first touch-screen competitor to the iPhone 3G has hit the U.S. market, and its 3G can be used on AT&T (NYSE: T)’s networks.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has a large 3.2-inch resistive touch screen that has a 360 by 640 resolution. The smartphone is powered by Symbian S60 fifth edition, and users of that operating system should find the user interface familiar. Nokia has tweaked a few elements to make is more finger-friendly though.

Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies introduces water-powered fuel cells that can generate enough power to recharge cell phones, music players, and even laptop computers. “We have used touch technology where it really adds value such as the contacts bar, media bar, and clever shortcuts from the home screen menu items such as calendar, profile, and clock,” said Nokia’s VP Jo Harlow in a statement.
The smartphone should work within some corporate environments thanks to Nokia’s licensing deals with Microsoft and IBM. There’s also built-in software to view Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF documents on the handset.

To stay connected, the 5800 has integrated Wi-Fi, EDGE, Bluetooth, and 3G capabilities. Because it’s a GSM device, T-Mobile customers could also use it for voice and 2G data, but it won’t be able to utilize T-Mobile’s growing 3G network. The GPS chip can be used with Nokia’s upgraded mapping services for navigation, and location-based searches.

With the name XpressMusic, it’s no surprise that the 5800 has robust multimedia features. The handset has a built-in FM radio, standard headphone jack, TV-out cable, and it’s capable of playing various audio and video files. It will come with 8 GB of memory, and that can be expanded up to 16 GB via a microSD slot.
