Nokia 8800 Sirocco Sergical Steel Luxury Triband Unlocked Phone (Gold) Product Description. Introduction The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition, as with the original 8800,









looks very distinctive. It retains the smooth design and hefty price tag of all previous 8000-series devices, which have traditionally been Nokia's final step before having to move to the ultra-premium Vertu line of handsets. Whilst design is a very personal thing, evaluating the functions of the handset is more objective, and that is what we are trying to do today. Physical Aspects The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition is a minor update of the 8800 released a year ago. Apart from the camera, there has not been much else updated hardware-wise. The phone can be recognized from afar by the reflection of its stainless steel body. According to Nokia, the signature feature of the 8800 Sirocco Edition's design is the concave 'thumbprint' on the front of the handset. Not only does it look nice, but it also makes the phone a lot more ergonomic, as it is now easier to slide open. The body measures 107mm x 45mm x 17.5mm (4.21" x 1.77" x 0.69"), making it fairly compact. The 8800 Sirocco Edition weights in at 138g (4.87oz), making the handset disproportionately heavy for its size. Of course, some people like it heavy, saying that the handset feels solid and high-end to justify its price. Although the mirror surface is a fingerprint magnet, it is extremely scratch resistant compared to the Sony Ericsson Z610i. Nokia stressed that the glass in front of the screen is specially treated to withstand scratches. With the slide closed, the two softkeys take up both sides of the metal strip on top of the thumb rest. They also act as an effective anchorage when you slide the phone open. The only button found outside of the slide is the power button on top of the handset, which also allows you to change the phone's active profile. The keys at both sides beside the screen are actually mechanical releases for the battery cover. The power plug, data, and headset connectors are on the bottom of the device. The spring-loaded sliding mechanism is extremely well constructed. It gives a sturdy metallic sound when opened and a solid snap when closed. Nokia claimed that the sliding mechanism is crafted with ball bearings to increase durability. Whatever the case, this solid feeling is nowhere to be found elsewhere in the market today. The keypad on the 8800 is a bit small, with the alphanumeric keys measuring just 5mm tall. However, they feel more ergonomic than they look. This is partly due to the 'sand dune' convex design of the keys and the excellent tactile feedback. The d-pad is crafted to look like a rectangular jewel surrounded by a thin frame of brushed metal. The select key is very easy to press, as are the dial and hang up keys, though the directional keys can be a bit tricky at times. Although Nokia claimed that "the jewel-like navigation key shines like the brightest star in the darkest night," the key itself is the only part of the keypad that is not backlit. Even so, we did not experience any major problems operating the phone in the dark. The camera lens is hidden on the back of the slider, and will only be revealed when the phone is open. The back of the phone is plain, and the surface around the camera is the same brushed bronze material as the keypad. It is not as reflective as the silver self-portrait mirror, but personally I preferred Nokia using the less shiny material, as it is less prone to fingerprinting. In terms of physical aspects, the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition is great but not perfect. Fingerprinting is an issue and the keypad is not the best around. I am not sure if I fancy the design enough to clean out my wallet on purchasing one.
