GLOBAL – Yes, that’s right folks, the 5800 might have just landed in the UK, and is yet to see American shores but already 1 million units have been shipped. The device, launched last October, has actually only been on sale since December in Spain, Russia and Hong Kong. Today saw the popular launch of the Nokia 5800 in the UK, with hundreds flocking to the Nokia Flagship Store on Regent Street to be amongst the first in the UK to have the handset.
“The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has been received very positively and this milestone is just further proof that people all over the world want a device that is not only a great music experience, but also makes the most of touch screen technology,” said Jo Harlow, Vice President, Nokia.
UPDATE: Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo reported recently that 500,000 5800s had shipped in the first thirty days. Today’s announcement means the second 500,000 units shipped in less than that, highlighting the increasing popularity of the 5800.
