1) Facebook for Nokia
Lets be honest, the web based version of Facebook is reasonable but it is not the most user friendly way to get your daily facebook fix. Thankfully Facebook has an official client for most Nokia phones and the 5800 is no exception. The 5800 version allows you to update your status, upload pictures and search numbers. You can of course accept friends requests as well.
No cell phone is complete without a youtube application to keep you entertained while waiting around. Youtube has an official client available for the Nokia 5800 and supports favorites, play lists and subscriptions. Remember to keep an eye on your bandwidth usage while using Youtube on metered Internet plans.
Unfortunately there is no official twitter application for Nokia at this stage however Tweets60 is an excelent Twitter client for Nokia phones. The free version is good enough for basic access and you will only need to consider the paid version if you would like to upload pictures to picture from your nokia cell phone.
