The 5800 XpressMusic phone has been Nokia's first real attempt at a touchscreen phone and it seems to of done quite well, it may even go on to sell more units than the iphone.

13 Million handsets have been sold since launch at the end of last year, Compared to the 17 Million Apple have sold since launch 2 years ago.This is very positive for Nokia as originally the 5800 sold for approx £400 in Europe, as it came with a 100 Euro music voucher and a 3 month subscription to Nokia Maps

The original high price was to deter 'grey market' sales of the handset because it was rolled out to certain countries at a time. Despite issues with the first batch of phones the 5800 has done reasonably well in North America and has had a very positive response in Europe and Asia.

So given all these positives we could see the device selling more than the iphone over the coming months.
