Consider Nokia 5800 XpressMusic if you are looking at HTC Touch

Today I saw a demo of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic in the local mall and I have to say it is quite impressive. The price quoted was around Rs 19K and that seems like a good deal if you are considering HTC Touch which at Rs 14K comes with a very flaky design (see below). The screen size of the Noka 5800 is 640 x 360 and supports up to 16 million colors. One of the cool features that I liked was if you keep the Nokia 5800 with screen facing down, it goes into a silent mode. This is really useful for people who have to attend meetings everyday. No need to keep changing the mode.  Just keep the phone upside down and you are all set. Nice, no?. It has other cool features similar to iPhone like automatic orientation sensor.  It has one touch to take you directly to your music listings, a small speaker in the back and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

Overall, on a feature-by-feature basis, it totally beats the crap out of HTC Touch and with Nokia’s legendary reliability, it is a safe buy.
