Nokia 8800 Arte review: Art of seduction

GSMArena team, 07 February 2008

Stainless steel and OLED screen: there's no way a handset with that kind of features will ever blend in with the crowd of handsets. Add the hefty price tag and you got the high-end biting the dust too, just like that. But then, there's always someone...
