With that fixed-focus camera, the photos taken on this thing ain't gonna impress anyone....
WOW finally a luxury ph. with specs to brag about. while others have only plated gold upon a basic cell ph. this one has actually put in some awesome software inside all that glitter.
Mate of mine had the 8800 and when I played with it I was ... disappointed. But that's because I'm a nerd who reads the GSMA RSS feed on his phone during his daily commute! :--p
8800 felt like quality in the hand and was loaded with a theme that made it look the part. This looks like a continuation of that trend, and I have to say I don't see Samsung, HTC, LG or Apple even making an attempt here. Once again, for better or worse, Nokia is out there seeking a market that others just don't bother with.

The care about the exclusivity and prestige.
So much of the comments expressed here are point less...
Is like having a Basic Rolex or a Premium Rolex...who cares if they are the same...you got premium because you can afford :D
This is just a C7 in gold. I wonder if it also comes with the purple screen defect found on the C7.

I know it's an expensive device, but for all that cash couldn't Nokia at least have put some colors into the icons? Or would that have made the phone more expensive? Lol... lmao!!!
I have to say... for a handset made out of gold, it's actually tasteful. I feel dirty saying that, but it actually looks pretty nice.
chocowii, 25 May 2011Next will be iPhone in color GOLD. "Apple reinvents everything, again."lol
[deleted post]You seriousely need to chill.This is not your forum,anyone can post theyr opinions on any topic.So chill an drespect other peoples opinions
Aaron, 25 May 2011This is a much better luxury phone than those 8800 series dumbphones of yesteryear.Bit your tongue!! lol. The 8800 in its day was THE coolest thing ever and was a real premium phone. Not about features.. just money and style. A phone would have to be $2500 today to compare imho..
LOL at some of the comments here. You think those who buy such phones care about OS or features?!
No. They, in case of this phone, only care about these :
18-carat gold plating
Sapphire crystal and leather materials
That's it. They want something that goes with their gold watch and rolls royce car.
Here is a list of some other official gold phones:
Nokia N97 mini Gold Edition
Nokia 6700 classic Gold Edition
Samsung I8910 HD Gold Edition
Nokia 8800 Gold Arte
Motorola Aura Diamond Edition
Sony Ericsson Jalou D&G edition
Next will be iPhone in color GOLD.

"It's more like a marriage of beauty and brains in one beautifully packaged phone", this phone seems more like a marriage between Paris Hilton and 50 cent! Lol!!!
Bill, 25 May 2011A Nokia C7, dressed up in gold and leather, that causes the user to scream "Hey! Look at ... moreSuperphones?
Oh, of course, nah, no that's totally believable.
i'd say your craving for that phone you possible broke blue-collar worker or spoiled kid.
what's the point of a premium design if the software inside is worth noting?
whatever nokia, if im really a "premium" type of person, i will pay a phone manufacturer to build me one unique phone. only one just for me, thats what i would do so i feeeeeeel """premium""" haha
