Nokia Releases Star Trek Version of 5800 XpressMusic Smartphone

Nokia is celebrating the release of the new Star Trek flick with a dedicated version of its popular Nokia 5800 XpressMusic which will be available for only £25 per month exclusively at Phones4U.

The phone, which will go on sale as from the 1st of May, will come with loads of Star Trek content including animated screensavers, Star Trek wallpapers, eight ringtones as well as a Phazer application whose usefulness still remains to be seen.

The 5800 XM - which is selling at the rate of 1 million a month - will come in blue, red and black/silver, on O2, T-Mobile, Vodafone and Orange - but still no 3 Network.

Orange currently sells the Silver version (opens in new tab) of the 5800 XM on a £25 tariff that includes 400 minutes and 3000 texts but doesn't sadly does not come with internet access.

As a reminder, the phone comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 3.2-inch LCD monitor, GPS, a 8GB microSD card and many other features.

Pocket-lint also mentions that Nokia will be part of the movie, in one of the opening sequences. Obviously this is not the first time that Nokia participates in movies, the phone company figured prominently in some James Bond flicks as well.

Our Comments

Great stuff but still no Comes With Music for the platform for what is arguably the most popular smartphone at Nokia currently. It is really a shame that the phone which also happens to be the most popular music player, still hasn't got the CMW feature to really get it the edge compared to the iPhone and other rivals.
