Nokia 8800 Brian Eno

Nokia on Wednesday announced a special version of its 8800 Sirocco designer phone that will be available only through a charity auction. The Brian Eno Signature Edition features a unique ambient music ringtone composed specifically by Eno for the phone. The music is meant to be calming and notifies the owner of a call without drawing excessive attention, Eno says. The special Nokia handset also has the musician's engraved signature and is individually numbered.

Only ten of the phones will be produced for the auction, whose proceeds will be split between the Keiskamma AIDS Treatment Program for South Africa as well as the World Land Trust conservation group. The auction will begin on January 8th and ends February 12th. Click through for a full photo of the phone in silver.
