Nokia Messaging comes to 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia has announced the messaging service will now be available on the 5800

The Nokia Messaging service is soon to be supported by the manufacturer's 5800 XpressMusic handset.

From May, users of the touchscreen device will be able to access their personal emails using this feature. It allows up to ten accounts to be set up via one icon on the phone.

Nokia's announcement means its messaging service will be available on 20 models in its range, including the E71 and the E66. It could also be good news for those considering one of the latest mobile phones after recycling their previous one.

Vice-president of products at Nokia Messaging Atif Hussein said the company had come to realise that one of the main barriers preventing people from adopting email on their handsets was usability.

"While offering people a full feature set, Nokia Messaging still minimises user actions and simplifies the complex, such as eliminating the need to know technical information," he explained.

Earlier this week, a new software update for the 5800 XpressMusic was unveiled, providing consumers with faster user interface and download times.

It also included a Mobile Dictionary with support for more languages.
