Nokia 8801 on sale by T-Mobile
The 8800 series, launched back in the spring of 2005 are nothing spectacular when it comes to features tri-band GSM, 800x600 (SVGA) camera, 64 MB memory and EDGE data. The hefty price tag of $549.99 with 1 year agreement from T-Mobile is because the 8801 is considered luxury phone and the consumer is expected to pay luxury price for it.
The conclusion of our Nokia 8800 review which we did back in June 2005:
"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 offer such display of status as the 8800. The phone is definitely a head-turner, but so it the RAZR. The difference between both is the RAZR is designed to be a high-end mass model, while the 8800 emphasized uniqueness and prestige. Unfortunately, besides the design, the 8800 does not offer anything more then a regular mid-range phone." Full 8800 review
