3G stands for third generation and the system is the third generation in the evolution of mobile phone networks, after analogue and GSM. 3G on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers much faster data transfers and the ability to make video calls between compatible handsets.
HSDPA offers a similar benefit to a 3G network that GPRS offered to the GSM networks. It offers a higher speed data transfer with a compatible handset. HSDPA is often referred to as Mobile Broadband.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has a large bright TFT touch screen supporting up to 16M colours. Use your hands or the stylus that comes included, the 5800 even supports handwriting recognition and has an accelerometer for auto screen rotation!
Bluetooth 2.0 is the next generation of Bluetooth connectivity. With Bluetooth 2.0 one of the biggest advantages is the possibility of listening to music with a compatible wireless headset in stereo. Less wires, less mess, more noise.
Java is often a forgotten feature on many phones, and is probably used in many ways without you even realising. If you play games on your phone, it’s likely they are java apps. But java is so much more than games. It allows you to add extra functionality to your handset by installing third party apps to the phone. Add email functionality with Gmail, add a web browser from Opera Mini, add a business directory with Yell.com or keep an eye on a new purchase on Ebay.
With a built in music player in the 5800 XpressMusic on Orange PAYG, you can carry your tunes with you, in your pocket, and listen to them when you want. Most digital formats are recognised on the phone, including MP3 and AAC.
TV Out option allows you to connect your phone to a TV and view videos/photos recorded/stored on your phone directly on the screen of your TV. Showing your holiday snaps was never easier, or indeed cooler, than this.
