Mere months after its initial launch, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset has proven to be a success. Nokia today announced that their first mass-market touchscreen handset has hit Platinum status with 1 million handsets sold since October 2008!
“The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has been received very positively and this milestone is just further proof that people all over the world want a device that is not only a great music experience, but also makes the most of touch screen technology,” said Jo Harlow, Vice President, Nokia.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic sold out within hours of their Hong Kong and Moscow launches, highlighting the handset’s popularity in all parts of the world. Nokia also mentions that their UK launch of the 5800 XpressMusic saw 150 customers “queued” outside Nokia’s Flagship Store in London. And, with a wide-aspect 3.2-inch touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera, 8GB of storage, 3G data connection, and WiFi radio packed within, it’s easy to see how the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has risen so quickly to the one-million milestone.
Kudos to Nokia and their success with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.
