The most popular Nokia touchscreen XpressMusic device has been turned into the new 5800 Navigation Edition this time and will be available in the market starting 3rd quarter of 2009 (notice the XpressMusic label is still on).

What do you get with this 5800 NE? A lifetime of voice-guided Drive and Walk navigation licenses for your region. Sweet :D

The 5800 Navigation Edition comes with all your guidance software needs as it comes with an in-box car charger (the one that comes with the N96) and Nokia car kit for you to mount the device to your vehicle.Apart from the voice-guided navigation (including valuable local traffic warnings), the latest version of Ovi Maps comes pre-installed, which allows you to search nearby points of interests and check out weather reports etc.

Check out this demo video of the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition.

The device is expected to be available in the 3rd quarter of this year and the estimated price is about 285 Euro before tax and subsidies. (Should be a little bit more expensive than the 5800 XpressMusic initial pricing)

What do you think of the device? do you like the chrome stylings?

I recently stumbled upon a cool promo video for the Nokia 6710 showing off it’s navigator capabilities with built-in aGPS and maps.

It’s about this guy who found a phone on the bench in a park and he used the maps and ‘places’ feature to lead him to the owner of the phone. Check it out!

This is my 5th post on Nokia 5800.

So when I got to preview it, I told myself… not to forget to try the browser and maps!
… but in the end I did try both but I didnt take photos and videos of the browser.

Anyways, I did try the maps for a while though.

It was actually kinda slow when opening Nokia Maps… probably cos they still haven’t refine it in the prototype firmware.

Basically it’s the same Nokia Maps and interface as the one on current Nseries models. Same menu, same search bar, same zoon and unzoom buttons. I’ve only tried the map view. Left out the satellite view.

To move around the map, we only need to use our finger to touch and drag the map around. Touch the ‘+’ sign to zoom in and the ‘-’ sign to zoom out. Moving around the map was super slow. As well as zooming. Really hope this will be fixed in newer firmwares.

Here’s a video.
