Nokia 8800 Lamborghini

Nokia said today that it will produce a limited edition of its 8800 Sirocco phone for Lamborghini enthusiasts. Its conspicuous laser-etched engravings are visual reminders of the Italian supercar builder's influence, the companies say, but the device also benefits from subtle improvements in engineering. The ball bearings at the heart of the sliding mechanism are custom-made by Lamborghini for a better feel; a sapphire screen coating similar to that of the Vertu Constellation not only adds to its exoticism, but resists scratches as well. The Lamborghini phone is appropriately preloaded with related wallpapers, themes, and ringtones as well as a video documentary.

Technical features remain similar to those of the already premium existing version, according to Nokia. A 2-megapixel camera, EDGE broadband support, and 128MB of internal storage are said to complement the cars that will likely be paired with the handsets. Lamborghini is offering only 500 of the special phones at its dealerships worldwide, according to Sybarites. Pricing has not been revealed.
