Not to be confused with the 5800 XpressMusic phone, this one is the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition that features lifetime voice-guided DRIVE and WALK navigation licenses, quick access to the latest Ovi Maps software, full regional maps and easy zooming, all with the familiar Nokia touch UI and brilliant 3.2 inch widescreen.
Nokia has unveiled a freshly tuned version of its debut touchscreen device, in the shape of the new Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition. Slated to saunter into pockets in the third quarter of 2009, this innovative incarnation of the 5800 comes pre-loaded with a lifetime of voice-guided Drive and Walk navigation licenses for your region.
Keenly tailored for taking you to where you need to be with minimal fuss, the 5800 Navigation Edition comes with all your guidance software set up, and as it comes with an in-box car charger and Nokia car kit, it has been designed to become your satnav savvy passenger in seconds.
As many of you know, here on Conversations we’re keen followers of location and context aware services, so it’s exciting to witness the emergence of a device so perfectly primed to explore this new territory of services so freely from the moment it’s unboxed and sat in your palm. Alongside it’s voice-guided navigation talents (including valuable local traffic warnings), it comes pre-loaded with the latest version of Ovi Maps pre-installed, enabling you to pinpoint nearby points of interest and relevant useful info, such as local weather reports and the best place to grab a bite in your area.
The 5800 Navigation Edition is inked in the diary for the third quarter of 2009 and is estimated to cost 285 Euros before all the usual regional taxes and subsidies stuff.
