Nokia 5800 3G

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is a mobile device for music that brings innovative new features to the mass market. Delivering on Nokia’s vision to provide the best total music experience possible, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be among the first devices to support Comes With Music, Nokia’s groundbreaking service which offers one year of unlimited access to the entire Nokia Music Store catalogue……

We powered up ye olde NAM 5800 XpressMusic today, and the weirdest thing happened: it worked on 3G. This comes after a day of frustration trying to get it hooked up to UMTS yesterday — a sentiment echoed by several others who took the plunge….. The only theory we can come up with is that we were in Chicago yesterday at the Nokia flagship store — a place where many of the “defective” units were sold — and today we’re elsewhere, so it’s conceivable that there’s an issue with AT&T’s 3G network in Chicago. We’ve noticed an uptick in 3G loss on other devices in Chicago the past few days, so it’s possible that the 5800 is just particularly sensitive to crappy networks; then again, there seem to be others in New York that have the same issue, so it’s anybody’s guess. All we know for sure is that we’re showing a big, fat “3.5G” logo in the upper left corner of our unit at the moment — and we’re going to cross our fingers that it stays that way. We have a request out to Nokia for official comment on the issue, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have more.
