Nokia 8800 Arte

 

The 8800 Arte is a beautifully crafted phone, but without the high-end specs of others in the Nokia family, it's definitely not one for specification hungry tech-heads.

Solid build quality, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth stereo A2DP, 1GB onboard memory

No built-in flash for camera, No Wi-Fi, GPS or HSDPA, Lack of expansion card slot

Nokia 8801 Cell Phone (GSM, Bluetooth, 0.5MP, 64MB)

 

Weighing nearly 5 ounces, the Nokia 8801 is one of the heavier standard cell phones we've tested. And at $600 (as of 8/4/06, with a two-year contract from T-Mobile), it's also one of the most expensive. However, the extra weight gives the 8801 a...

Offers impressive sound quality ; Brushed-aluminum case feels solid

Keypad is difficult to use ; Camera is difficult to access

This luxury cell phone offers an impressive design and good battery life, but it doesn't come cheap.

Nokia 8800 review: Nokia 8800

 

Nokia 8800 Perhaps more than any other cell phone manufacturer, Nokia has been pushing the envelope in form factor with innovative designs, such as those of the Nokia N90 and the Nokia 7280 . However, image and fashion don't count for much when they...

Sexy, eye-catching form factor; Bluetooth; sharp 262,000-color screen; world phone; speakerphone; integrated camera plus video recorder; streams music via Bluetooth; solid call quality; FM tuner.

Cramped keypad; inconsistent battery life; case and screen show smudges easily; battery case hard to remove; expensive; heavy.

The Nokia 8800's flawed design and short battery life mar an otherwise beautiful and feature-packed phone.

Nokia 8800 review: Exclusivity costs

 

Here is the new flagship of Nokia. Excellent performance, quality dislpay, camera and matt steel body. It is luxurious and beautiful... and you will have to clean it every five minutes. Who will posses it, will be exceptional. Do you want it? Street...

I am hesitating whether to appreciate the extra weight of 8800 as a negative or a positive feature. There are people at least, who need to know that they have something in their hands. On the other side, we talk about a phone, which most of the time...

Nokia 8801

 

Despite its good looks and ability to stream stereo music over Bluetooth, Nokia's luxury phone costs too much for what you get.

Excellent feel. First U.S. phone to stream stereo music over Bluetooth. Luxurious materials.

Case attracts fingerprints. Poor battery life. Poor EDGE speed. Expensive.

Nokia 8801

 

Ah, the highly-coveted and much-anticipated Nokia 8801 cell phone. How sweeeeeet it is - truly a head turner. But is the Nokia 8801 worth its high price tag? It all depends on what you value in a cell phone. This one has decent call quality, a plethora...

Nokia 8800 / 8801 review

 

The whole uniqueness of the phone is pretty much its design - true stainless steel shell, scratch-resistant glass, ball bearing slide mechanism. Aside from the super-premium (and price) Vertu series, currently there is no other device on the market to...

Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition Review

 

Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition launched in fall 2006, managed to become the most expensive handset from Nokia's line-up. The exquisite design of the handset recommended it as a publicity tool for great car manufacturers. Astonishing new sequels appeared...

Nokia 8801 Review

 

While the Vertu clearly is the antithesis of the everyday cell phone and doesn’t for a second attempt to be light or inexpensive, its “heavy” and “hard” features actually serve as enablers for allowing the handsets to take a beating.

Nokia's Pricey 8801 Misses the Mark

 

The cell-phone maker's fashion-forward new model isn't as user-friendly as the price tag might lead one to expect.

Back before the turn of the century, when folks in Finland seemed to be the only ones who saw that cell phones could be fashion items, Nokia ("NOK") came out with a phone informally known as "the Zippo." Like the famous lighter, it...
