Remember the teaser post?

The 5800 XpressMusic was finally launched and went on sale in Malaysia on the 9th January 2009. The launch event took place at Pavilion, one of the trendiest shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.

The event started at 7pm and the entance of the mall was already crowded with curious passerbys, music lovers and 5800 fans.

There were performances by local acts along with a musical demonstration ala STOMP.

Many audience on the floor were called up on stage to play games and answer questions related to the Nokia 5800 XPM and everyone of them walked away with some Nokia goodie bags + merchandises.

I saw many people buying the 5800 on the event day itself and RM1499.00 is actually a very affordable price for such a powerhouse phone. Good job Nokia!

I then joined the other invited bloggers to the after party makan-makan and drinking session at La Bodega.

Check out this video I recorded of the event using the 5800 itself.

Hi Smashpop! Really awesome such kind of event, uh? It’s a pity for me leaving slighlty far from Milan or Rome where it could be possible Nokia would organize something similar…
But now we expect almost a daily personal review about your XP5800, a quasi-daily description of your life with it… I’m joking, but anyway always thanks for your posts! Bye!
