Hi, if you think you can buy this handset in £200-300 on ebay, just forget it. Do not come in fake scams. Kindly visit official Nokia online shop. You will see the price of these handset is at least £500 plus. All models on ebay saying made in Finland are fakes, or so much identical that you won’t find any difference. If you want to buy phone just to show off then you can buy made china on ebay which is showing made in Finland label but its not the real deal. Here in London price of these phones starts at £600 plus. And if you can find these so called authentic handsets on ebay, ask seller to provide you with sealed box with all the original accessories like desktop charger etc. I bet seller will tell you we pack these phones in our own package to save custom charges. lol!
vikram, 12 Aug 2009i want to purchase one nokia8800 carbon arte do i go for it????? pls suggest,,,,This seller on eBay has been selling for a long time and has the real thing...
FYI to all:
Nokia Carbon Arte is made only in Korea and have a price tag 1200 and above. All those handsets saying made in Finland and costing 200-300 USD are made in China and have practically no phisical differences, while the FW in the phone is slightly different from genuine Nokia.
I am in Canada, and there is a 8800 Carbon Arte available for $320. It says it is brand new and unlocked, and is made in Finland. What do you think? Can someone help???
Just like rolls royce. Expensive but crappy car. I would like to own it if I have the money. Still need approval from the mister of finance at home.
lol lol lol to all the haters bad mouthing this flawless work of art n basing the argument on the phones lack of features, read n understand that ths fone is NOT for those who want features but rather those who demand the highest in premium grade quality....its a phone based purely on class and style..an irresistable object of desire...for those who expect the highest standards of quality and precision craftsmenship... :D

Need help with Genuine Carbon arte identification,hope anyone who has used one of the genuine carbon let me know how to spot the differents between genuine and fake one.Bought 3 already and later realized that they're fakes.One says made in Finland with 4gb memo/Two say made in Korea with 4gb memo/those 3 look and feel like the real one and even have EMEI number registered.It's unbelievable what Chinese can do nowaday regarding copying.It makes Nokia look bad cause they even put Nokia brand name on the phone and classfied as Nokia production.We can buy a Nokia carbon arte on Ebay for around Usd 100.oo.I think it's time for Mr Nokia roll up their sleeve and starting the clean up.Cheers
can someone tell me how ca I put the watch on the sreen, you know when your phone is being charged? I am not sure if it's clear? You know, it's like on the photo in the book...Thanks!

I prefer the 8800 Gold Arte.
