Nokia Messaging Beta 2 launched: Twitter added, fuller Facebook [Video]

Nokia have announced the second beta of Nokia Messaging for Social Networks, and they're now including Twitter support together with greater Facebook integration. The app is aimed at Nokia's N97, N97 mini and 5800 handsets, and the device's own communication - SMS and calls - are tied into individual profiles.

As well as photo uploading - complete with GPS geotagging - there's video uploading to Facebook too. You can also add a Facebook calendar event to your handset's calendar with one tap, and there's no full profile support so you can see other users' walls and photo galleries, and comment on them.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic hits U.S. at Cincinnati Bell

Fans of the Nokia XpressMusic phones rejoice! You can now get your hands on the 5800 XpressMusic in the U.S. on Cincinnati Bell Wireless. While you could buy the device in the country before, you could only do so at an unsubsidized price, shelling out about $400.

On Cincinnati Bell, the smartphone will cost $149 with a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate. But besides the lower price, this device remains the same as it is in other countries and as it's unsubsidized counterpart.

Standard features include GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 3.2-inch 360 x 640 touchscreen, a web browser and more. We don't know if the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will make it to other U.S. carriers, but for now, at least you have one option.
