Currently both Nokia 5800 and Nokia E71 are top tier mobiles form Nokia available in market , both of them are targeted at different market segments with E71 for the business users and 5800 XpressMusic as a entertainment oriented touch screen Smartphone, both of them are almost in the same price range with E71 a bit more pricey.

If we review the features of both Nokia 5800 and E71 then you will see that there isn’t any substantial difference in the things that both are offering, the only difference is the form factor and E71 offering a QWERTY keyboard while Nokia 5800 having a touch screen.

The camera, multimedia features, memory, processing power etc all are nearly same which makes the decision of buying one of them even more complicated.
If you have to decide between the two then it will all come down to your preference of the form factor, if you are looking for a iphone type phone then go for 5800 and if are more into blackberry and corporate oriented stuff then E71 is the one to choose .

I myself will prefer Nokia E71 over 5800 , as find the touch screen phones a hassle to manage with one hand and give load of trouble in situations like driving or eating. Moreover touchscreen phones are more susceptible to malfunction and need more careful handling.

Picture below show the comparison done between Nokia 5800 and E71 at the mobile-phone.co.uk site and will give you a good overview of what both mobiles have to offer
