Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic , the one with “Comes with Music” service, has hit a landmark event. One million Nokia 5800s have been shipped around the world. The phone has also just been released in the UK.

It took Nokia four months to reach the million mark; the 5800 XpressMusic was released in October of 2008. It only took the original iPhone 74 days to hit one million, and one weekend for the iPhone 3G to accomplish the same feat. Like many phone manufacturers, Nokia entered the touchscreen phone market after Apple changed the game. The 5800 is their first major attempt at a touchscreen phone.

    Is this validation for the "comes with music" concept or for a Nokia touchscreen phone?

    I tend to side against the pre-installed music idea and see this as Nokia fans (who kick everyone's butt in global phone shipments) desiring the cool touchscreen made popular by Apple.

    Anyone see it differently?
