Nokia 5800 with US 3G support to be launched this month for $400

Although Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is already available in the US, it’s only the European version that can be bought – for $349.99. This means you are forced to use it only on the GSM/EDGE bands, since European 3G frequencies are incompatible with the US ones. 

However, it looks like a North American version of the XpressMusic handset is on its way too.

The Nokia Blog has it that a NAM Nokia 5800 will be available from US retailers starting the end of this month (around February 26).

The suggested retail price of the US 3G-rocking 5800 is said to be of $399, so you’ll have to pay $50 more than for the European version.

If it’s worth it or not, it’s up to you to decide.
