Nokia 5800 XpressMusic To Come Stateside On Feb. 26 For $399?

So says the folks over at Nokia Blog. FCC filings we've seen pretty much confirm that a 5800 "Tube" with US 3G banding is heading for the states, albeit in unlocked form.

Nokia's first all-touch Symbian phone underwhelmed us when we first saw it back in October of last year, which is why its initial rollout happened in Europe (where it sells for $350, natch). The $399 here is unsubsidized, and carriers here don't exactly have a reputation for picking up medium- to high-end Nokia phones.

We asked Nokia for confirmation, and they were mum, but if you just need to touch a Symbian phone and can't wait for the N97, keep your eyes peeled anyway for the 5800 one later this month, if the rumors are to be believed. [Nokia Blog]
