I have this phone. I was looking at Vertu but decided I could not justify it. Looking back good descion. I paid $1350 CDN for this phone but i got it in Canada when it was first released. No dealers carried it so it was a special order. I can tell u that it has the performce and features of a phone 1/3 the price. Worst thing is it is so heavy. Dropped it on the concrete and swear it bounced so high it could have landed in the same hand it fell out of. Stick with phones that are designed for performance. This isn't a watch or a car. It is a cell phone. Technolgy changes mounthly.
i got this phone the otherday looks great nice design but no card slots 128mb memory not bad though looks nice but the lack of features again pay loads of money just for the features that's it
hey if you got this phone you will not need a ferrari anymore to have any girl you want :)
"the screen is only 208+208 becuase of its design " - here was plenty of space at the top where the Nokia wording is that could of been used to extend the screen.
"there is no memory card slot becuase of its curvy edges" - The memory card could of quiet easily gone in the battery compartment.
"there is no autofocus,flash becuase of the camera at the back no space for garbage functions" - Autofocus is only junk if you want blurry photos.
And your solution to the blandness of Siroccos' features is to also carry a second phone? Just buy a decent phone in the first place.
This phone is mobile bling with mediocre, second rate features at best.

8800 sirocco is 1 of a kind in design(only)
for everything else get a secondary phone for E.g 6230i thatl keep u entertained on the same platform as 8800!!!!!!
my mates have got one, and im getting jealous. trying to get it on o2 max for free for last two weeks on staff discount
d beggest draw back is card slot in not availlable......again 3G alos not available.........looks not a right choice 2 spend this hude amount for it........+ve is looks......so make yr choice b/w looks and features
I bought that phone few days ago...worest phone i ever had features are comman no new innovation only design is good but not as good as i was expecting....poor batter life Oh lord i simply just wasted my money.....Hey Guys Nokia is simply just making fool its customers i think if u like stylish phones than Motorolla is Number one .... 8800 Sirocco SuCkssss.....
Good looking, well made phone but hardly one of the best on the market. It's features are pretty second rate compared to most phones out there. I mean for a start it has the usual Nokia square screen at only 208x208 pixels where as most manufacturers are now going for 240x320. Yes it has a 2 mega pixel camera but where is the auto focus? Where is the flash? And whats the point in an MP3 player if it only has 128MB of memory and no way of increasing it?
One for those who like bling over substance in my opinion.
Right. After using this phone for the past 3 weeks i have come to an conclusion which i would say is a good comments on the entire phone.
It is brilliant. It does what you want it to do. Plays music, takes photos, brilliant for texts and phone calls.
Nokia have done a very good first class job on this handset.
Anyone thinking about getting this phone, get it, the stylish things which come with it, like the headphones and case, are also brilliant.
This phone is one of the best on the market at the moment. For thouse who say it's crap then you havn't had one and played with it properly.
i dont have the phone. its not because i cant afford its because i dont like it. i work for a phone company and have seen the phone many times. it doesnt look that and the middle buttons actually get loose so you can see inside the phone. if that happens then how can it be made well enough to justify that price tag
Nokia 8800 is totaly a stylish, gracefully, business class mobile, even with less features still its cool..
why are you people still goin on about the siroccoo,yes it was good 6 months ago when it came out but it wasent even great them,the only reason i got one was because everyone else wanted one,not because it is great,get over it and find something else to take about
That is what i try to say, they just cant get it through because they can afford it.
I have a 02 stealth, n73,7390 but there is comparison with the sirocco, it is in a leauge of it's own.
there is no memory card slot becuase of the design to curvy
and no POP PORT becuase of the deign to curvy to special for the thingssss LOOKS IS WHAT 8800 SIROCCO is all about..
its features are very third class
but look is great and main thing i think feature. after all its not a good phone be aware from 8800sirroco
to chris well said
but 1 thing i own this and 6230i i prefer this sirocco just becuase of its looks..but then i always go to 6230i for everything else ...just have to say this..8800 sirocco has To die for looks..dribble!!!! AND LOOKS ARE EVERTHING THESE DAYS..everyone should know that..8800 is that..
