Nokia 5900 XpressMusic Spotted: Real or Fake?
A number of pictures reveal what is said to be the Nokia 5900. The phone appears to be thinner than the 5800 and the word is it will feature a larger 3.5-inch touch-sensitive screen, along with a 3.5mm jack and a 5-megapixel camera. The source also claims the operating system remains the same as on the previous phone – Symbian S60 5th edition.
On first thoughts the 5900 looks fake for a number of reason. Firstly, Nokia hasn’t confirmed anything to say that such a phone was in the works. Apparently there’s no 3G support which is hard to believe. More importantly, however, the leaked photos are coming out of some random source in China, a country that we’ve come to associate with product knockoffs and clones.
