Nokia 8600 on Friday

The much-anticipated Nokia 8600 could drop as soon as Friday, based on a series of ads belonging to British cellphone shop Carphone Warehouse. Scheduled for a May 25th launch, the mid-range successor to the 8800 Sirocco is now labeled the Black Magic due to the mix of a smoked-glass cover with an "organic" light effect through the on-screen interface and the body of the phone itself. Additional details have also appeared that reveal 128MB of internal flash to back up the microSD slot. FM radio provides extra music beyond MP3s and other digital files.

If validated, the ads suggest that the launch will involve a six-week exclusive run for Carphone Warehouse on the 8600 in Britain. Costs for the unsubsidized version of the phone are unavailable, but will be low enough that certain plans from European cell carrier O2 will offer the phone for free. [via Howard Forums]
