Nokia has unveiled the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, which is a variant of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic with a full GPS functionality. Using the momentum gained by the original Nokia 5800 XpressMusic; this new handset matches the functionality of its predecessor almost perfectly. However, the main differences are the added lifetime Drive and Walk navigation license and the cool looking stand and car charger, which allow user to easily use the gadget as an in-car SatNav unit.
Nokia 5800 Navigation will come in three different flavors, each packing quad-band GSM connectivity. Two of them will also pack WLAN and dual-band 3G with HSDPA, while the third one will lack both connectivity options. However, it seems that device’s screen to be as poor under direct sunlight as the one of the first S60 5th edition gadget. Considering that the device is meant to sit on user’s dashboard, frequently exposed to sunlight, this flaw might make it somewhat less than a perfect travel companion.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has been one of Nokia’s best sellers since its release 9 months ago. In an effort to sell more Nokia 5800 units and get even more people using Nokia Maps, which DoubleDT.Com believes is now called Ovi Maps (which does not work with Google Chrome), Nokia is launching the new Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition for only $405, which comes out in Q309 and will be available in Chrome and Black color combo.
