Further expanding its touchscreen device portfolio, Nokia has announced the 5800 Navigation Edition. This tailored version of the 5800 XpressMusic will center around the navigational abilities of the current model, and include a lifetime license for Nokia's Ovi Maps.
The 640 by 360 pixel touchscreen is going to remain, as will the 3.2 MPx digital camera, 1320 mAh battery, GPS, and Symbian S60v5 operating system.
The software side of the 5800NE will be accented by the pre-installation of Ovi Maps 3 and a lifetime license for its voice-guided Drive and Walk features. Support for the Ovi Store and other third-party downloadable software will ensure that the 5800NE can interact with the same locations that it displays on-screen.
Due to its orientation as a navigation device, it is going to come with an in-box car charger and Nokia car kit for use in auto/boat scenarios.
