Nokia Celebrates My Birthday – Starts Shipping The 5800 & S60 Follows Suit – Launches A New Ambassadors Campaign

As part of my Birthday celebrations, Nokia today announced that they had started shipping the 5800 Xpress Music in select countries around the world including Russia, Spain, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Finland, among others. What such an announcement usually means is that you should start seeing the 5800 in stores near you within a week or two. The price will vary from region to region, however in India it is expected to retail at around the Rs. 21,000 mark. This press release means that we could see the 5800 come out in December itself, and not January like we had earlier heard.

Meanwhile to add to the celebrations, a new campaign has been announced for S60 Ambassadors in India and South East Asia. The campaign is open for 12 weeks starting Nov 27th, and will be based on the Nokia E-mail Service. It will feature the usual loaner device for Report of the Week award, and either the BH-800 headset or the BH-501 headphones for the top 10% of NES Ambassadors at the end of the campaign.

Please find the press release for the 5800 Xpress Music here and the new campaign announcement here.

  1. @ 21K THIS IS KIND OF EXPENSIVE IF COMPARED TO SAY ASUS P750 OR SO BUT THEN NOKIA PHONES HAVE A BETTER RESALE VALUE IN INDIA AS COMPARED TO IMATE WHICH IS CONSIDERED AN EXPENSIVE BRAND,HENCE THE PHYCOLOGICAL BLOCK FOR BUYING AN IMATE.
