Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold
Hoping to add a level of luxury to one of its most popular cellphones, Nokia today launched the 8800 Sirocco Gold. Its whole body is plated in 18-carat gold with white gold highlights; taking a cue from its own Vertu line by coating the LCD in sapphire to make it almost entirely scratch-resistant. A matching Bluetooth earpiece and desk stand exist for those who want to complete the effect, Nokia says.
The Gold model carries the same hardware as other Sirocco Editions, with a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and 128MB of internal flash memory. The special edition ships now for 1,000 Euros ($1,337) in some of Nokia's key markets. Click through for a larger shot.
