Can this be the Nokia 5900 XpressMusic?
Odd things happen these days. Say, a guy has uploaded an unknown video commercial of a device that, according to him, is the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. To the sharp eye of experts however, the handset looks slightly different. Despite the bad quality of the clip, we can see a silvery band on the front edge and diferent functional buttons that we think are touch sensitive. It´s not clear whether this is another version of the 5800 XpressMusic, say the 5800i that has recently undergone FCC testing (and doesn´t support Wi-Fi) or a brand new device and namely the 5900 XpressMusic as some people claim. The rumor has it the new music-oriented phone will feature a better camera and video capture capabilities.

If this is the Nokia 5900 XpressMusic indeed, we think we might be in for another disappointment. How come all handsets equipped with touch sensitive screens look so much alike and equally unappealing?

Phonearena, wake up! GSMArena already deleted this news article on their website because they realized that this was the early Nokia 5800 prototype after all. In other words, this phone is certainly not new but rather, it is the old 5800 prototype. Though, your link to their website for the source of this news still works, there is already an update message stating that they are mistaken about the matter. Take a look at their website's homepage again and I can assure you that you can't find this news article already. http://www.gsmarena.com/

"If this is the Nokia 5900 XpressMusic indeed, we think we might be in for another disappointment. How come all handsets equipped with touch sensitive screens look so much alike and equally unappealing?" They look so much alike because there are only so many different ways of designing a candybar phone without making it look ridiculous like the HTC phones with Android on them. Not everybody finds the design of conservatively styled handsets like the 5800 or Omnia to be unappealing. Its when designs include arch's to the phone body itself or when they add carbon fiber looking accents to it (Blackberry) or designs like the one on the face of the Nokia 5530 with those black dots or whatever, that they start becoming unappealing. But hey, if you guys like all that goofy looking stuff, that's cool. Give me an E72 shell design with a big touchscreen, add the Nokia N97 volume rocker, camera key, and the silver border that houses them and I'll be happy.
