How does Nokia 5800 Xpress Music differ from 5800 Navigation Edition?

This phone has got all the same features that 5800 Xpress Music has, but the salient feature is its navigational tool that comes pre- installed. It comes with Nokia’s Ovi Maps software which is very useful for those who travel a lot. You get the Regional maps – Lifetime pedestrian and vehicle voice-guided navigation licenses for free of cost. You can mount the phone on your car where you get a car mount and cradle also a car charger when you buy this phone.

Ovi Maps offers full maps of the United States and Canada and you can view the maps satellite view, terrain view, 2D, or 3D. You can search for any location and add them as favourites, find your current location, and also get traffic updates.

The stand-by and talk time seems to be bit higher than the Xpress Music edition.

Overall this is also an Xpress Music phone which has the extra feature of navigational tool. I would suggest going for this phone only when you travel a lot around US and Canada. This phone is not launched in India may be because of the maps which shows for only US and Canada.
