News: Nokia and T-mobile to Release Nokia 8801 in USA

June 17, 2006 in Nokia Phone News

You may have seen it on NokiaUSA.com. You may have seen it in a Nokia Experience Center. The stylin’, sleek Nokia 8801 phone is now coming officially to a T-mobile kiosk near you.

More in the full entry.

The Nokia 8801 is a mobile with a 0.6 megapixel camera, 64 megabytes of internal memory, and a stainless steel body that’s reminiscent of the Nokia 8890 and 8860. There’s a cover that slides up and down over the keypad, and, to be honest not much else. It does have a loudspeaker, scratch-resistant glass panel, Bluetooth, mp3 ringtones, and the other minor features for a Series 40 phone.

I think it’s a little bit of too little, too late here – this Nokia phone has been picked up by T-mobile, and the funny thing is: it’s already ages old! Might as well use the money spent on this to go buy yourself a Nokia N91.

Of course, if you’re looking to just buy the Nokia 8801, the retail price (on Nokia’s site) is $799.99 US dollars. In Chinatown, it’s about ~$500.
