Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte unboxing

The Nokia 8800 sits pretty much at the top end of the Nokia handset range. This titanium and carbon fibre version comes in at just under £1000 which is stunningly expensive for a ‘standard’ mobile phone when you consider that you could buy a decent laptop for less than that.

So why so expensive? Well the 8800 handsets are incredibly well made constructed from quality materials including carbon fibre, titanium, stainless steel and polished glass. Despite being constructed from these high-tech materials the 8800 weighs in at over 150 grams so it’s no lightweight. That said, the construction is so solid that the weight is actually reassuring.

You’ll also find a matching docking/charging station and a bluetooth headset included in the box. It’s a shame that Nokia didn’t think to incorporate the headset charger in to the dock though.

I don’t want to spoil Nick’s review which we’ll have for you within the next few weeks so I’ll leave you with the unboxing video so you can see what else is included.
