I managed to get my hands on the Nokia Arte 8800 this year and was bowled over by it. I loved its weight, its style, and if it weren’t for the matter of a few hundred pounds it would be in my pocket right now. Well now it’s back, and better than ever! As well as an inflated price tag, you’re looking at 4GB of internal memory, as compared to the previous 1GB. Well, that’s worth an extra hundred right?
Unsurprisingly this device is created from Carbon fibre (hence the name) and titanium, and features 3D patterns that ‘express the inherent performance and lustre of carbon fibre.’
You get all the features of the previous Arte models, with 3G capabilities, a 2 inch OLED display and a 3.2 megapixel camera. There’s also the tap-for-time feature, which lets you see the time by, ah, tapping. Yessiree. Still, it’s a lovely looking piece of kit, and if the last model was anything to go by, it’s seriously covetable.
£870 from Nokia in October
