I have used one of these phones and the only good thing about it is the looks the battery life is very bad and its def not worth the money
i have 8800 arte, i want the carbon arte!! ill be diong my usual insurance claim as soon as i hear its available.. nothin compares to these phones they r in a league of their own.. please dont try bag this phone u jus get laughed at!!!!!
verry cool ...super features...especially.the titanium and carbon fiber case..
Jayjay, this is for you. Not only you can buy two N95 8GB for the price of one 8800. You can also can buy dozens & dozens of N2626 for the price of one 8800. Put it another way, you can buy a few dozens of Proton Iswara for the price of one Lamborghini Gallardo.If everybody thinks like you & fortunately we are not then there wouldn't be a market for the 8800.
I have used the 8800 sirocco and i can tell you that this phone is obviously for style than feature. The phone feels VERY nice and solid. The slider is a bit different for others and will need to get a bit used to.
This phone is sort of like and upgrade, some better feature and a sexier look.
Daniela, 25 Aug 2008Nice phone.But than again so are all the other nokia phones.Wonder if it is as nice as it look... moreIt depends on what you're looking for. Nokia's are really great all around devices. Great call quality and battery life, plus the newer Nokia's don't suffer from lag issues so the symbian OS works fantastic. If you're a big time messenger go for the E71. It's got every feature under the sun, is super thin, has an amazing week long battery life and a full hardware qwerty keypad, not to mention it's very pocket friendly. If you don't care too much for camera and are fine with an alpha numeric pad, the e51 or 6301 are really good phones. All these phones have wi-fi and pretty much any feature you can think of, and all have excellent build quality, reception, and call quality to boot. If you want a good camera on a tight budget and don't care for wi-fi, a full keypad or 3g, but still want a good mp3 player and good build quality, the Samsung g600 is an excellent choice. Hope this helps.
You people do not seem to understand & haven't you guys heard of "marketing strategy?" You want a no-frill phone go for the 2 or 3 series. If you want everything in it go for the N series. The 8 series is not meant to be an all in one phone. Perhaps this comment will enlighten some ignorant people out there complaining that the 8 series has no wifi, touchscreen, card-slot and what have you. Is just like you do not buy a Lamborghini because is a 2 seater. Buy what you can afford & please don't complain that is expensive. You are not bound by the law to buy what you cannot afford or perceive to be a bad buy.Thank you.
Everybody, this phone is worth the price; If you don't think so, you're just not the one to buy this kind of phone. It's simple. It's a fantastic accessorie for the stylish person. I'll consider a 88XX next time I'm going to get a new phone.

Hey all ...
Does anyone know when this phone will be released in South Africa ? Need to get my hands on one of these ;)
the best phone one can get in the world...
i am eagerly waiting for this handset...
i tried this phone out at a mobile convention here in Stockholm, and honestly, they could have at least put some sort of symbian OS in it, now it's just a menu where you can look in the calender and set alarmtime, and if you want to, even take pictures, and it's heavy like no other, but the same time the weight felt evenly balanced and quite comfortable due to the nice material and how it feels in the hand, you can feel the luxury, you don'r have too look at it, so it's basically just a old school phone software wise, with some heavy eyecathing bling bling status of it's own, if that's what u r after.
