S60 fans rejoice – Nokia has just announced that it has begun shipping the highly anticipated 5800 XpressMusic. Woo! Don’t get too excited just yet though, only retailers in Russia, Spain, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Finland and a few other markets will be receiving this first round of shipments and there’s still no word as to how the schedule is looking for other regions. Unfortunately, it still looks like potential buyers in those markets can likely look forward to some elevated pricing until year’s end, but those of you who absolutely must have the 5800 can chalk it up to early-adopter tax. The fact that you can brag to your S60-loving buddies in other regions about being the first to get your hands on Nokia’s touchscreen revival should make up for the extra cost, maybe.
