Orange gets Nokia 5800 XpressMusic exclusive

It seems touchscreen exclusives are where it's at for the big mobile players. O2's rocking the iPhone, T–Mobile's got the G1 and Vodafone's show

According to The Guardian, the phone formerly know as the Tube will be on the Orange network only when it hits the UK next year. Sadly though, they're giving nothing away about release dates or an official price. Nokia told us last week that it'd shift SIM–free for around £200.

The 5800 XpressMusic will hit Asia by the end of this year, with plans for a February release here in the UK. Seeing as it took the best part of eight months to get the N96 into your local Carphone Warehouse, this isn't too long a wait.
