Yep, the much-awaited Nokia’s touchscreen 5800 Tube has been leaked by a Chinese website


5800 XpressMedia has been re-christened into 5800 XpressMusic…



The UI is totally primitive… looks like the basic (pixelised) theme on my phone…



There’s a new battery – BL-5J at 1150mA. That should be enough to support that 640x360 screen!


At 640x360, it’s almost nearing VGA & definitely better than the iPhone (480x320).



This is CRAP!!! Honestly, even Windows Mobile’s UI is better than this!




The Specs:

  • Measurements: 111 × 52 × 14.5 mm, and weighs only 104 grams.
  • 16 million color TFT LCD, 640×360 pixel resolution, 16:9 display mode
  • Haptic feedback
  • 3.2 megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics with autofocus
  • Dual LED flash
  • Built-in GPS
  • 140 MB RAM
  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE / WCDMA / HSDPA / WLAN / Bluetooth
  • 3.5 mm audio jack, TV-out
  • BL-5J 1150 mAh battery


Fortunately, this is only a prototype device, meaning that’s definitely not the final UI. A week ago, these screenshots (640x480) of the new S60 Touch UI were leaked out from the Carbide.UI theme maker!



These are no good either – hope Nokia has a secret UI in development… & remember the Tube is not the high-end device!

Motorola is a doomed company. Last Feb, they were thinking of selling their mobile phone division! :P
