Nokia started shipping its new Nokia 8800 phone, which has been under development for three years. The company hopes this phone will become the same status symbol like Motorola's RAZR did. The phone has a stainless steel case with a slide mechanism assisted by high-grade ball bearings. Here's a look at the specifications of the 8800:
262K color 208 x 208 pixel TFT display with scratch-resistant glass
SVGA camera with video capture
EDGE high-speed data
64MB of memory
The Nokia 8800 costs $800. A US version is planned under model number 8801 and should retail within a few months.
