Nokia's new high-end 3G handsets for the in-crowd – 8800 Arte and 8800 Sapphire Arte

Mobile phones

Two newly-launched premium handsets from Nokia – the 8800 Arte and 8800 Sapphire Arte, aimed at the ‘discerning and style-conscious consumer’ apparently.

Both are 3G handsets, with 2.0-inch OLED display with up to 16 million colours, 3.2 megapixel auto focus camera with 8x digital zoom, 1GB built in memory space, a MicroUSB all-in-one-connector and an anti-fingerprint coating on the metal and glass.

But you guess looks are more important than specification here, with Nokia highlighting the ‘quality’ and ‘craftsmanship’, which includes a seamless metal and glass body, glide opening mechanism and an analogue clock that only appears when you tap the phone. The Sapphire Arte goes a step further by adding a genuine sapphire gem stone and some leather to the finish. They also come packed with a package of accessories and ‘an exclusive videotrack and soundtrack composed by Kruder & Dorfmeister with visuals by Fritz Fitzke’. If you happen to be familiar with said individuals..

The Nokia 8800 Arte will start shipping in the fourth quarter of 2007 for 1000 Euros. The Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte will follow in the first quarter of 2008 for approximately 1150 Euros.
