Taking inspiration from a traditional, mature style seen in interior design, fashion and jewelry collections, the elegance of the gold plating is accented by genuine natural grain leather in a rich white hue.
In the tradition of the Nokia 8800 Arte range, the Nokia 8800 Gold Arte features a slide mechanism with precision ball-bearings, as well as soundtracks and living wallpapers created exclusively for the range.
The Nokia 8800 Gold Arte also offers the tap-for-time feature – consumers can tap the leather surface below the display twice and a clock appears on the screen. The turn-to-mute silencing mechanism – a hallmark of the range- allows individuals to silence incoming calls in a discrete manner by turning the phone over, screen-side down.
In addition to the 3G capabilities and 3.2 megapixel auto focus camera and high quality audio, the Nokia 8800 Gold Arte has a stunning OLED display and built-in memory of 4 GB. Nokia’s antifingerprint coating reduces smudges on metal and glass and the unique all- in-one micro USB creates a seamless design experience.
The Nokia 8800 Gold Arte is delivered with an exclusive range of accessories. These include a Bluetooth touch-sensitive volume control headset, a stylish desk stand that echoes the elegant materials and minimalist design of the phone, and a natural grain leather carrying case.
The Nokia 8800 Gold Arte will be available in select markets beginning in the fourth quarter of 2008 with an estimated retail price of 1,190 EUR exclusive of subsidies and taxes.
