Coming soon: review of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Having recently bought a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone to replace the N96, I will shortly be reviewing the former giving you my opinion (for what it's worth) on the phone's features, design and above all the new S60 5th Edition touch interface.

Suffice it to say for now that I'm very pleased with this device and have no intention of switching back to the N96.

Stay tuned for more in due course...

Hey, I saw your thread on the Nokia forums http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=smartphones&message.id=134139&query.id=769446#M134139 .

If you have the time, I would like to ask you some questions about Nokia phones, I see that you are very smart and it would be great if you could e-mail me when you were available.

By the way, my name is Jesse and I am from the USA. My question is about mismatching RM numbers in a nokia 8800 carbon arte. Under the battery it says, "Type: RM-288"
But using the *#06# command it says RM-233. This means it's most likely a fake if I am not mistaking. I just thought I'd get your opinion on it since you are clearly 20 times smarter than I am. If you could e-mail me at whoanelly3@hotmail.com or just reply in here, that would be great.

I apologize for the length of this message, and thank you for your time.

If you're given anything other than the phone's IMEI number when you enter *#06# then you certainly have a fake.

This said, RM-233 is indeed the model number of the 8800 Arte series (Arte, Sapphire Arte, Carbon Arte), which all share the same innards. I've not been able to find out what an RM-288 is, if there is such a model.
