How to use Facebook on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Beginners to the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic may not know that Web on S60 phones is based on exactly the same 'Webkit' core code as Safari on the Apple iPhone. With the relative popularity of the iPhone, a lot of direct support for the system has been set up on mainstream web servers. And now that the 5800 XpressMusic has touch as well, this means that you can enjoy the full 'whizzy', interactive iPhone Facebook experience but on an S60 phone for the first time.

Read on in the full article.

Nice one Steve, I did an article on this a while ago, but not quite so detailed on the facebook aspect, it was about iPhone sites in general, take a look:

Unfortunately like most things iphone, it looks pretty but isn't very practical

As the previous poster mentioned, using the back button actually closes down the page, especially in the photos section.

also its very difficult to find functions, ie commenting on peoples status'

just like Nokia, the standard mobile interface may not be as pretty but is much more effective
