Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte introduced

I don't really quite know what to do when I caught this news at GSMArena, to post or not to post... that's the question.

I remember it well enough, when my sister bought the 'ludricious' N8800 SE, which at that time is one of the exclusive mobile phone around; then Nokia broke all of N8800 owners by releasing the Luna version. After that, there's Arte and then Saphire too.

And now, like it's not enough to re-fire the old flame. Nokia has announced Nokia 8800 in
Carbon Arte serie, and as like the name imply; the body is using carbon fiber with etched 3D patterns dominating the exterior.

It'll also get the better specs compared to its older siblings such as a 3.2 megapixel camera, 4GB of flash memory, 2" OLED display with anti-fingerprint coating, microUSB & Bluetooth. But the most stand out feature is the turn-to-mute and tap-for time, these features use the built-in accelerometer to show the time by simply taping twice on the case or mute calls by turning it over.

The N8800 Carbon Arte is set to be released on the 3rd quarter of the year, priced at 1,100 Euro or around $1,600. Head on to Nokia's
photo web page to see more pictures of this expensive mobile phone in all of its glory. Sources are from GSMArena & Engadget Mobile.
