This phone is made for superficial Asians that think status is something achieved by the materials you possess.
Well it is really expensive, even the previous versions of 8800 is still expensive even though its not very functional,, just for the looks and style, it is commendable!
my maid has been pestering me to get her one. i only use vertu phones myself.

I have problem with capturing picture with my Carbon Arte & also my Sapphire Arte...after I press the shutter & had the picture taken, the phone just hang! I must turn off the one & restart again...Very frustrating! Anyone have the same problem? Anyway, Nokia phones do have a lot of problems nowadays(unlike the good old days)!

Unknown, 18 Oct 2008There was a problem in previous 8800 Arte reported by some owners which was loose glued plate ... moreYes after 3 days of using the Carbon arte, the back plate started coming off. brought is back to nokia and within another week of getting it replaced, it is coming off again exposing the glue. I am getting rid of this phone.
Its a Luxury Phone, not a brick with a crap battery life(N95)
Luxury is sopposed to mean Style with reasonable features a PREMIUM PHONE, thats very unique and full of style for a business man or a rich celebrity!
I would take this 8800 Carbon Arte over the N-Series anyday anytime!
the phone looks good and has features..yea?? so does n95 and BONUS it comes with 8gb and it cheaper then 8800. definately worth buying n95 cuz itz way better then 8800 n lots of more features n yea WIFI!!!

There was a problem in previous 8800 Arte reported by some owners which was loose glued plate on the back side of the earpiease, I was wondering if that issue has been repeated in Carbon Arte again? Thanks in advance for any reply.
Yes, titanium & carbon fibre are much lighter than steel. The carbon version still weighs the same as the other Arte models simply because, the carbon is just an add on & as for the titanium probably is titanium color coated. The body is still made of steel & thats the reason for the 150gm. If the complete phone is really made of carbon & titanium. Nokia would not be selling at this price.
shail, 17 Oct 2008will cost you around 850 pounds here in UK, n ya if you can't afford it, please don't blame it... moreDear Shail,
These kind of modles are expensive only because of it shows the simbol of status, even if you look at its mattel its very expensive which gives u value for the money. When company used to decide to manufactureing of these modles they never think that its being used by every individual. Its for class not for mass.
Just stop criticising the 8800 series. Is not meant for those people who want everything in a phone. Users of 8800 are not interested in 5 or 8mp camera, wifi, GPS & what have you.They just want a phone that can call out & receive call with a bit of style thrown in as well. Not forgetting they have the $$$$ to spend. So don't be envied. Work hard & save if you can't afford one.
will cost you around 850 pounds here in UK, n ya if you can't afford it, please don't blame it. there are lots of efforts to make such master model. it has saffire crystal glass which get used in luxury watches. have it in your hand once, if possible, roam around with it in crowd, n then you will not criticise. N one more thing only Nokia can dare to make something like this. its not made for ordinary people whos one three months salary is equal to cost of this.
