Nokia 8800: Quality Remains in Style...forever

By: Samuel Herrick

Over the years there have been many fashion phones as well as 'bling' phones that tried to woo the mobile phone users of the world. However due to lack of ground breaking designing, as well as absence of popular brands in this category, premium solution haven't really took off like camera phones or music phones. Things finally started to roll with the launch of the Nokia 8800 - a premium model for the upwardly mobile social group.

A quick glance of the Nokia 8800 is sufficient for one to evaluate its built quality. The entire handset is made with stainless steel saving the top of the back panel. What separates the Nokia 8800 from other mobile phones with metal casing is the amount of material used. The Nokia 8800's casing is about 0.5 mm thick which is twice as much as any other mobile phone.

Though this liberal use of stainless steel increases the handset's weight, which is about 134 grams but gives and impression of reliability. Moreover, the natural shine of stainless steel exudes sophistication and professionalism in the old school way. A black variant of the Nokia 8800 is also available in the Russian market.

The Nokia 8800 supports triband GSM mobile networks and thereby, is fully functional in over a hundred countries across five continents. Superior voice network reception apart, the handset can be used to surf the internet on the move. With its embedded class 10 GPRS and EDGE technologies, the Nokia 8800 can achieve download speeds of up to 236.8 kbps in optimum condition. Use the device to surf the Internet, download or upload files, emails and anything else you may fancy.

Sharing data or synchronizing your contacts with your PC is a breeze through Bluetooth v1.2 technology included in the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Black. Major multimedia functions incorporated in the Nokia 8800 are SVGA digital camera, integrated media player and a FM radio.
