Semi-Preview: Nokia 8800 Arte Phone

There isn’t much to say about the Nokia 8800 Arte that hasn’t already been said about the 8800 Sapphire Arte, currently this year’s most expensive non-Vertu Nokia phone.

Nokia recently released the datasheet for the 8800 Arte (which should be the same as the Sapphire Arte), and it lookin’ a little underfeatured. No quad-band here. Both phones will be tri-band 900/1800/1900 + 3G WCDMA 2100. Add a mediocre battery life of 3 hours with the included 1000 mAh battery and you just might find yourself asking – what is it about these phones that wastes so much damn energy? The OLED screen?

Maybe it’s the addition of the accelerometer, a feature that was not previously mentioned in Nokia’s press release.

Compared the Nokia 8800 Arte with the 8800 Sapphire Arte, the only noticeable (physical) difference seems to be the addition of a genuine sapphire gem and some soft leather material. Of course, that also adds another 150 euro smackers to the price. At least Noikia ships the phone with a bunch of goodies – BH-803 Bluetooth headset, DT-19 matching desk stand, and a CP-212 carrying pouch.
