Mark your calendars comrades, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be ripe for the picking starting December 5th. Ringing up at an even 15,000 rubles – which is hardly as expensive as it sounds (about $550) – Nokia’s first touchscreen-rocking S60 handset will indeed be ready and waiting to be snatched up for that special someone on your holiday shopping list. We won’t bother going through the specs again as we all know what this little guy is made of. We can only hope that Nokia doesn’t go and give early adopters a quick case of buyer’s remorse by officially announcing the 5800’s big brother shortly after the December 5th release. Bah, you know you’ll still want 5800 bragging rights anyway. So, Russia, get ready for some 3.2-inch 640 × 360 pixel touchscreen S60 love in just over a month. As for the rest of us, we still have a bit of a wait ahead of us.
