Apple's iPhone has been a big hit worldwide, but competitors have until very recently been slow to come up with their own alternatives.
Now Mobile phone giant Nokia has announced its answer to the iPhone, the touchscreen Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. The 5800 will be released this month in the UK, but most markets (including the USA) will have to wait until early 2009.
Nokia's new phone has a similar full-length touchscreen and virtual keyboard as the ground-breaking iPhone, but lacks the multi-touch "pinch" technology to zoom in on images and websites.
The 5800's screen is slightly smaller than the iPhone, but Nokia's phone includes a 3.2 megapixel camera which can also shoot video (iPhone's camera is just 2 megapixels, and doesn't do video).
