GLOBAL – The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is rolling out globally and with it is coming a raft of useful tips, tricks and treats from all corners. Our friends over at AllAboutSymbian win the “most comprehensive coverage of a touchscreen handset” award for their immense list of tutorials, reviews and other titbits (we’ll highlight a few in a minute). The peeps inside Nokia have also been busy, with the clever bods over at Forum Nokia assembling a rather nifty classic in the form of Touch Solitaire. Read on for more.

Rafe and Steve at AllAboutSymbian have a host of useful tutorial features written specifically for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. From the basic beginner’s Guide to the more advanced how to take screenshots.

Two that caught our attention (and if you’re a 5800 user, I suspect yours too) are how to subscribe to web feeds and how to take better pictures. The first sounds, and is, pretty straightforward, but the AAS lads put a nice twist on it, highlighting a simple step by step guide to adding a whole collection of feeds at once. So, if you already have an RSS reader running on your computer, you can simply export your feeds, follow the guide and you’ll have the whole lot up and running on your 5800 before you know it. Covering off some basics in a no-nonsense way the camera tips will surely make for better results too.

Elsewhere, Solitaire has hit the Nokia 5800 thanks to the chaps at Forum Nokia. Intended as a touchscreen demo app to show other developers how it’s done, we get the bonus of having another free app to download and keep us busy between (and during) meetings. Check it out and download it from Forum Nokia.

Cosmin over at Softpedia also has a host of quick tips and tricks worth taking a look at. Broken into two articles Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Tips and Tricks and More Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Tips and Tricks there’s plenty of nifty advice to help you get more from the device.

And if there are any other tricks you’ve discovered, feel free to let us know below.
