The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold Phone – more than just a mugger magnet.

Let’s start with the price. At 1000 Euros (about $1350 US dollars), we’re looking at one of the most expensive Nokia non-Vertu phones to date. So what do you get for this chump change, anyway?

No matter how you look at it, the 8800 Sirocco Gold (named for a type of wind in the Sahara desert) is all about money, money, money. It’s gold plated in 18-carats, and has a scratch-resistant, sapphire-coated glass display. Come on – it looks like a million bucks.

As for the feature set, we’re looking at similar options as the previous Sirocco phone. Nokia would only reveal that the 8800 Sirocco Gold houses a 2 megapixel camera and 262k color screen. Don’t expect Symbian or Voice over IP or DivX movies – this phone is all about the looks.
