Super-heroes have came and gone just like that, but Batman aka. the Dark Night has been proven to be the most sucessful super-hero movie franchise after Spiderman. And Nokia sees the opportunity to ride on the DC's icon popularity by releasing the "Dark Night" edition, which basically is the Nokia 6205 (pictured above, click to view it larger) with a Dark Knight logo imprinted on the front-flip back. Those lucky boys at Engadget Mobile got their hands-on this minimalist flip phone, head on their page to see more pictures the unboxing.

This black-colored CDMA flip handset from Nokia is offered throught Verizon network, equipped with wallpapers, voice tones, animated screensavers inspired by the film, and a full movie trailer. Besides that Nokia 6025 Dark Knight offers access to Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music service, a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash and 4x digital zoom, 58 MB internal memory, VZ Navigator and Mobile Web for access to the latest news, sports, weather.

The phone is offered in a unique package, with iconic images drawn straight from Gotham City and a Joker playing card.

According to Verizon, the price of the Nokia 6205 The Dark Knight edition will be available online for $69.99 after a $50 online instant rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.

Yesterday I forgot to post a celebrity who uses mobile phone, so today I'm gonna treat you guys with the photo shot pictures below (click to enlarge it) from The Dark Night premiere night at AMC Loews Lincoln Center-NYC on Monday evening on July 14th. The movie’s casts such as Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman and Maggie Gyllenhaal were joined by Hollywood guests. Like Blake Lively who posed her sexy legs in front of the bat-mobile (yowza!), and Lauren Conrad shyly crossed her legs. ;-D

The normally red carpet was turned into black colored instead, in order to honor the late Heath Ledger who played the role of the Joker in the movie. Every casts of the movie were saying good things of their fallen comrade, like Christian Bale who plays Batman said: "“He was wonderful. He was talented beyond belief, his immersion in the character was a greatly satisfying thing to work opposite.” Bale then added, "I would love to be right here with him. And I thought I would be..."

Maggie Gyllenhaal, who plays attorney Rachel Dawes in “The Dark Knight”, added: “He did something that is difficult even for every great actor. It’s still very unusual to hit a stride that is so free that you can really do no wrong. There’s no way to judge what he did. He was absolutely free.”

Yes, you're a great actor Heath. A Salute to Heath's magnificent play, for portraying the Joker character perfectly. But you're free now, and we're going to miss you... ;~
