Hundreds line up at Nokia 5800 launch
Hello! Are you a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic owner? Please take the quick survey here!
Over two hundred people lined up early today in front of the Nokia Store at Boni High Street to pick up their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.
If what I overheard from Nokia reps count was right, about 272 or so people signed up to get their reserved units. The Nokia 5800 is released at a special pre-order price of Php19,990.
Nokia PR shared accounts of people coming as far as Cebu to pick up their unit and several others already lining up very early in the morning just to be one of the first 58 to get a freeÂ Sennheiser HD-205 headset. They were initially worried nobody would show up.
Though the Nokia 5800 launch isn’t anything near to the numbers achieved by the iPhone 3G when it launched last year, this could be the longest line for any Nokia product in the country ever.
