The Naming Act: Nokia 8800 Sirocco

By: Alice Erin


Ever wondered why Nokia 8800 is called Nokia 8800 Sirocco? Most articles would tell you that it is inspired from the hot and humid winds that originate in the Sahara Desert. Perhaps, they also would tell you that the phone is designed to imitate the energy and potential of the wind. In this article you will find why Nokia 8800 Sirocco is thus appellated.

The Nokia 8800 Sirocco phone belongs to a category of Nokia phones that are characterized by uniqueness of design. This experimental handset is available in black and silver colours and uses the slide open mechanism. How is this information related to the name? Read on. The Nokia 8800 Sirocco phone has a conspicuous thumb rest on the bottom of the upper surface. The indented portion effects contours of the soft and erosive desert dunes.

The name accentuates optimism. By appending the tag Sirocco to the Nokia 8800 handset, its manufacturers acknowledge the creative potential of destructive forces. Arising from an arid zone deemed capable of producing nothing, the wind gains moisture and force and affects the climate and vegetation of the neighboring continent. The story of the Sirocco handset runs parallel.

The design of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco phone is quite unique. It evinces a departure from the traditional slider phones. Such breaking of norms needs some logical explanation. The desert like indentation cushions the thumb and eases phone handling. It justifies the experiment by serving users' interest. It imitates Sirocco in a positive way, and thus the name Nokia 8800 Sirocco.

Nokia 8800 Sirocco phone emulates the wind in more positive ways. It allows users to travel distances without disturbing connectivity. This is achieved by the tri-band frequencies on which the phone operates. The colours of the handsets exude the power and force of the wind. A host of features resemble the vortex of energy a Sirocco embodies.

High on style and serviceability, the Nokia 8800 Sirocco is a scaled manifestation of the real one.
