Following in the footsteps of the Sapphire Arte and Carbon Arte, the Gold Arte brings 18 carats of the stuff along with “premium quality leather.” No pleather here!

Unfortunately, everything else – OLED screen, 3G, “tap for time”, 3.2 megapixel camera – is exactly the same as the previous iterations, and continues Nokia’s philosophy of “less is more” for the 8800 series.

It looks like Nokia also decided that the 8800 Gold Arte was above a mere press release, and dropped the phone onto Nokia web sites to be discovered by Random Bloggers. So price and availability are pretty much nonexistent. But keep in mind that the Carbon Arte retailed for 1100 Euro/$1623 USD and the Sapphire Arte went for 1150 Euro.
