The long wait is over; Nokia has quietly launched their first full touch S60 phone in Russia! The very first European model of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was sold in Moscow, Russia, without fake advertising, without big poster, without big announcements, but with stunning success.
The Moscow Flagship Store sold out its entire inventory in less than 30 minutes! An additional nine hundreds unlucky stragglers added their names to the long waiting list.
Buyers, some of whom had camped in line for hours or even days, crowded the Flagship Store thinking that they’ll be able to get phone among the first. At sales start on Wednesday November 26th there was a queue of over 150 people although it was unbearable cold to wait in the shade of the Nokia Flagship Store!
Some anxious buyers even offered bribes to people in queue to get the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic first! I really need help as soon as possible, I can’t tell you how desperate and sad I am, I can’t wait anymore, I want it right now :[
