it's not about the features that they have in this phone. it's about the look, the design, materials. if you looking for the mp3, camera quality, a lot of functions, then this phone is not for you. if you want to look good, and showing off your phone, then this is the one. this phone is like a luxury watch, it's the material and design that count not the function. I own this phone for 6 months now, and it still looking great, it dosent get old. you have to own it to love it. not seeing other have and judge about it.
Posers phone, crap battery, terrible memory, 1.3mp better than some out there,but its terrible, so many of these have been returned to my store with nothing but complaints, dont buy this...

Dani Filth CPW, you already got your 8600 dummy? All we got was a cruddy promotional flyer about it.
really its nice phone to use in adinner once aweek not to cary it with you all the time
and for me ithink the phone need bigger memory
why it is so expensive...the design makes all? Beside this is a phone like every other...
If what you(cpw)guys are saying about the 8860 having 128mb memory, that is a shame as they (Nokia)should have increased it to at least 512mb to compete with the LG Shine or the Prada handset..
Yeah the nok 8600 is amazing, we have a dummy phone of it in my cpw store. Apparently it weon't have a ridiculous price tag either \m/
The 8600 is official, we just got some info at Carphone here, we have the phone exclusive it has a 2MP camera and 128mb in built memory, it will also be available on O2 contracts for free, no idea on pricing yet.
i have gone from the Nokia 8801 in silver to the nokia 8800 gold edition to the Nokia 880o sirocco gold plated edition, the phones are all absolutely beautiful to look at, extremely durable, but the volume is absolutely TOO LOW, i have lost connection during calls plenty of times with all 3 phones (it is not my provider because my new phone has no drop calls) The key pad is very tiny, even for my hands as a woman (big fingers watch out) and the biggest thing to worruy about would have to be the constant agony of making sure you dont, lose, scratch, break or get your phone stolen considering the hefty price tag you have just paid, Nokia has way better phones at affordable prices, i guess 3 times is a charm with me, goodbye to all Nokia 8800's and 8801 for me!
Price for the Gold Sirocco at the Carphone Warehouse:
Offline price: £949.95
O2 contract: 18 month contract £75 a month 1800 minutes + 500 text phone = £239.99
i have recently purchased a 8800 sirocco and i think the phone is great, well designed simple to use, a no nosense phone for the no nonsense user, and great to look at.

Actually it might have warranty in US. If you're in NY you can step by to the official store on 5th Av, next to LV store and they should be able to ship it to Finland for repairs
I just love the phone, if you don't mind paying for more, then this phone is for you, I'm enjoying it.
