Nokia and SSC Napoli unveil exclusive edition of the Lumia 520
The Finnish giant Nokia and the Italian soccer club SSC Napoli have recently teamed up and released a limited version of the Nokia Lumia 520 smartphone. The personalized devices come in three different versions – white, blue and yellow, all of which flash a heavily customized back cover.

The design of all covers sports a camouflage pattern, which resembles the design of the team's secondary jerseys. The first version of the phone is called Nokia Lumia 520 SSC Napoli Limited Edition and comes in white, sporting a large logo of SSC Napoli. The covers of both other versions, the light blue Marek Hamšík Lumia 520 Limited Edition and the yellow Nokia Lumia 520 Limited Edition Gonzalo Higuaín, resemble the jerseys of Napoli's best strikers at the moment The custom devices also flash Hamsik and Higuain's autographs on their back covers.

This is not the first collaboration between Nokia and SSC Napoli. Several years ago, another exclusive Nokia, branded with the Italian soccer team's distinctive decals, was released – the 7310 Supernova SSC Napoli Special Edition.

The personalized Lumia smartphones are priced at $229 and are available at both Nokia Stores and Napoli Stores across Italy.

If they made a Real Madrid edition I'd consider buying it when traveling to Spain.

wow so much money for a phone that has 1/2 GB of ram, with no camera flash, or front facing camera. I would save money with buying the moto g, and would be getting a much better phone with a much better ecosystem. You could get a custom printed covering for most phones.

No one said you have to buy it. You can buy this phone in the US for as low as $69. Much cheaper than the Moto G, as good a phone as it it. This is just a custom edition for people who want it, again no one has to buy it. Limited Edition phone's are generally more expensive because they're exactly as the name implies - limited. Let's not forgot Moto G won't be available in US till Jan.

Yeah, but it runs Android, and WP fans would rather have a WP device.. Next time compare it to another WP device because your comment is seriously irrelevant considering how different the two platforms are.. Its not all about apps,, at least with WP it isn't..

Why is the world so stupid? It is more expensive because it is an OFFICIAL phone from the soccer team. Passionate fans will buy this. Why do people buy the more expensive iphone? Because of branding.

Lol Hamsik is not a striker, he is a midfielder.
