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.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 20081000 eur ???!!! mad It costs 1200+ euro in Romania...huge price for such a bad phone...bussiness ppl. can't use it, especially because of the battery witch is craaaaap!!!!
the n95 is better and cheaper but this design is really cool but really this phone is overvaluated maybe consider if had bigger memory and wifi
1000 eur ???!!! mad
Nokia is stealing money with the 8800 series! I'm sooo upset! Verry poor battery, weak features, shitty camera, HUGE price! At least use gold and/or diamonds like Continental Mobiles do! Their prices are high but at least you buy hand taylored quality, verry expensive materials (gold, leather, 2.1 caarats diamonds, crystal anty-scrach front window), limited series, name or message graved, crocodile leather brifcase, 24k gold card, etc.....NOKIA, YOU DON'T RESPECT YOURSELF AND THE CUSTOMERS ANYMORE! SHAME ON YOU!
Just like my Sapphire Arte, the only let down is the terrible quality & very slow acting, auto focus 3.2MP camera, still using the same old V5 S40 platform with those tiny fonts & the dim screen(even adjusted to max. brightness)!
Nokia, don't just sell on looks & material...I'm not asking for a lot of functions; but what came with this phone is not all good!... For example, the sound quality & speaker phone is loud & clear, which is excellent. The camera is extremely lousy... small screen is acceptable in a narrow phone like this; but small fonts are difficult to read!!!
My above comment apply to all Nokia 8800 Arte models.
i m haqchandio
i use this phone . like very good
i love it
i m very poor
sell my house to buy this phone
Please Buy from Nokia shop. Beware of cheaters supplier in this forum . their 8800 arte is from china made . go youtube can see .
8800 carbon arte is so cool . But not as beautiful & elegant as 8800 Sapphire Black Leather ( Limited Edition ).
wow thats some expensive phone and it suprises me know how any person in nokia ever thought of making a phone as expensive as this one but what really stunts me that with a talk time as low as that it still doesnt have all the specifications of the n95 or the c905 or the samsung g810
Phonejacker, 07 Oct 2008Does anyone actually own one of these?I brought this more than a week ago. This phone is exactly the same as my Sapphire Arte...except with more memory & is more high tech looking but not as elegant looking as the Sapphire Arte!
i am very rich so i is buy the phone. very the nice to using. i use phone on my wife she like the function. buy for her bairthday.
4gb memory so can put many many videos. its stble s40
Does anyone actually own one of these?
Yes, it is true when you say carbon or titanium it should weight lighter and more durable than stainless steel.
I guess I missed the part about looking at the weight of the phone. I haven't received the phones yet. Anyway, if the phone is still the same weight as the previous models, then the phone is coated with titanium and carbon only with stainless steel inside still???
Nokia, must explain... But I kind of like the feel of heaviness of my old 8800, but nokia must really explain to people why the phone still weights the same.
Again, I purchased 2 phones (1 sapphire and 1 carbon)from my local retail store here, And I told the store that both phones should be made in finland. I really don't mind with the same weight coz I prefer more solid feel. But again and again Nokia must explain the carbon part and the titanium part...
dont get me wrong i do like the look of this phone and money is no object to me i can afford any phone out there but this time i think nokia are taking the micky this time it should say coated in carbon and a little bit of titanium but still then it should not be 150 g should it like i said its been looked into now and when i pull my arte out of my pocket i dont think look at me i own 1 because i like it thats all and would buy this phone carbon i feally do like the look of it but been told to hang on by the people who i complained to for some reason i think the price will drop soon once nokia have to reprint about what this product is actually made of its not what they say in there press they are making out its totaly carbon and titanium but this is not true , im not against people in this forum im on your side but this time feel so strongly about being mislead by nokia thats why ive complained to the people who regulate phone makers and they do say i have a strong case so think im right this time after all we in this firum like the 8800 phones but we should get what we pay for like we used to , and i strongly believe it should have the best on the inside to , aswell as on the outside like they nokia claim this time its an extra 500 pounds for the outer case and a little bit more memory this is a fact this time , if this phone does not sell well you can bet they soon launch another with better camera better stand by time and so on the person at nokia in charge of the 8800 phones should be sacked he is after more sales not less thats why when sales soon start to fall he gives the go ahead for a better speck . when the first 8800 phones came out they did not launch another for a good few years thats when they where quality and advanced they sold well but this time its more money than quality like i said they are in trouble this time in there press saying what its made of they are hinting its totaly carbon and titanium they seem to have forgot to print its 80 percent steel so they deserve what they get really hope then we all get the 8800 we deserve even if it was a thousand pound dearer we deserve this if you like me have all bought the entire 800 range since they where launched .
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2008looked on lots of forums even on nokias own and they say in print that carbon is light and so ... moreyou have apoint there.
that been said,
1-as far as the three arte versions maybe it is just a matter of taste i prefer the carbon
2-saying that this should have the best camera mem.... yeah it would have been nice if the phone carl ziess lenses 30fps vid recording etc.but hey it dosen't
3-weight i never read that they said this phone is made out of carbon and titanium "post a link of that please" i always knew it is just a cover
finally if you can afford this phone you can afford any other hightech phone
to all you readers this is not ment to be a supper phone its more of just a looker
meteorrrock, 01 Oct 2008I will get this carbon phone and then I will get my wife the sapphire arte, and then I'm done ... morehi,meteor
obviously for you mony is no object nither is it for me.
i have a colletion of phones,i got 2 laptops and severl other devices.
how ever not every body can aford to do that so they try to get the best gadget for thir price limit.
so who ever agree with me reply
i agree with tech
i agree with meteor
looked on lots of forums even on nokias own and they say in print that carbon is light and so is titanium so if they used those this phone should weigh alot less than my arte it weighs the same 150 g that should not be they can only have coated the outside to me this is a rip off , ive mailed the people who keep these phone companys in line explained to them and they are now looking in to this they say it should be lighter if made of carbon and titanium ,looks to me like nokia press department are misleading us if so they will be getting a hefty fine for this , like i said the arte and carbon titanium art should not weigh the same should they bet when the phone regulater takes these 2 phones apart i bet they are the same on the inside, if this is true its 500 gb pounds extra for outer case and a little more memory so good look nokia press department looks like your going to need to do alot of explaining people like these phones but to me i think you are taking advantige of loyal 8800 owners ,the reason 3 arte versions have come out in 1 year is that they are not selling as good as they hoped , when i got my 8850 it was nokias flagship phone for years not months , the 8800 phones of today should not be the best outside but on the inside to should have top memory top battery life top camera people would go and buy it then and it would be the top nokia phone for a good few years like they used to be when 8850 and 8890 where around what they are doing at the moment is going for quantity not quality at the moment if they dont change this i think the 8800 range will burn out within the next few years so nokia we know you read this forum go back to quality not quantity like i said if made of these things this phone should be light not heavy steal does not the same as carbon or titanium is it fact
why does it weigh the same as the normal arte if its carbon and titanium 150 g it must just be the coating, inside it must still be stainless steal . i have the arte in black thinking of getting this but not sure this is because its 150 g same as mine how is this when its carbon and titanium if it was made totaly of these it should be lighter am i wrong or do you agree
