Nokia delays the 5800 release until Q1 2009 for the UK market

Well who would have thought it Nokia has delayed the release of the 5800 Xpressmusic phone. Its set to take a bit of the fight to the iPhone, but at the bottom end of the market segment not the high end that the iPhone currently has all sown up.

But if you were hoping to get it before Christmas in the UK then you are out of luck, get something else I think Nokia will be hoping its one of the premium models like the N96 that just really don’t cut it. I can’t say that I’m not frustrated about the delay because I am. I mean they have already released it in Spain and Russia, lets hope they do some good work beta testing it for us to iron out the bugs before it comes to the UK, its the only solace I can take from it at the moment.

So if you don’t want an iPhone, don’t like Windows Mobile and think the G1 is satans child but do want a touch screen phone then you are going to have to wait until 2009 to get your hands on a Nokia 5800, bar humbug.
