Nokia 8600 Luna Review

Being the biggest mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia offers in its product line a great variety of devices, to appeal to every taste and satisfy every whim.

It was long ago when the phones were used only for conversation. In their evolution, they were transformed from ordinary receivers to complex devices suitable for any type of communication. In line with the technical progress, changes are evident in the form, colors, materials and even comfort in everyday use, while at a certain point some of the phones started to impress with their design rather than with their functions.

Years ago Nokia launched a series of such phones, which were distinguished by their luxury and style, and positioned themselves in the so called premium series line. The first models of this series were the 8810 and the 8850, launched at the end of the previous century, followed by the 8910 and the 8910i, which were launched on the market in the years 2002-2003. Their success led to the launching of the 8800 in 2005 and its successor the 8800 Sirocco in 2006.

It was logical to expect that Nokia will develop another model of this series in 2007, intended to continue the success of its predecessors, showing even newer and more interesting features.

This effort resulted in the launch of Nokia 8600 Luna – a four-band slider (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) with QVGA display with 16 million colors and 2 mega pixel camera, for the production of which materials such as stainless steel and glass were used.

The phone comes in a large luxury black box, made of hard cardboard, which emphasizes that the phone inside is not an ordinary one, but rather a device of the premium series.

When opening the box you will find the following things:
  • Nokia 8600 Luna
  • Nokia Battery BP-5M
  • Nokia Charger AC-6 (microUSB)
  • Nokia Headset HS-47
  • Nokia AD-55 Adapter
  • Nokia Connectivity microUSB Data Cable CA-101
  • CD ROM with Nokia PC Suite software
  • User guide
  • Nokia 8600 Luna story booklet
  • Leather polishing cloth
  • Leather pouch
  • Lanyard neck strap

As you can see, even the box itself bears a striking resemblance with the one of the 8800 series, and again nothing is saved, even for the packages of the device.
