stainless steelThis is the model of Nokia that we already have seen. For example, other Nokia model`s were 8810, 8810i, 8850 etc. This model is diferrent, he has some new options, also tft in color ( you remember that previous models didn`t have colored TFT). This is an excellent device for business people.The 8800 has an exclusive user interface with its own styles, themes and ring-tones.

Hardware

Nokia 8800 dimensions are 107 x 45 x 15 mm, 67 cc and his weight is 134 g. Nokia 8800 is both heavy and sleek at the same time. The secret lies in a stainless steel cover, giving the 8800 a luxurious feel. But when you open the slider reveals a 0.5 megapixel camera on the back with 800 x 600 pixels. I expected that he will have at least 1.3 mp and that you can take nice pictures but we see that he only has 0.5 mp. This is a disadvantage.

The TFT display have 256K colors with 208 x 208 pixels. Also, TFT display have scratch-resistant glass and you can`t make a scratch on the screen. This is very good !

I always had problems with scratching my TFT display, but now for the first time I can say this is very good thing because you don`t have to think did you put your device in the purse or with keys. The phone’s menu is reached by pushing at the center of the 5-way navigation pad, where Nokia now actually has incorporated a button to improve usability compared to navigation pads found in so many of its earlier models. It is a little difficult to use, but with practice you will learn. He supports FM radio, MP3 player, bluetooth, usb, GPRS, EDGE and GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz for data and voice connectivity. He doesn`t have symbian , he supports JAVA MIDP 2.0.

Preferences

His intern memory is 64 MB, but another disadvantage is that he doesn`t have card slot. When you want to store a little more information’s on your device, or , however, you want to store more pictures you have to set the quality picture on low level.

When we speak about phone-book, he is the same : you can store up to 1000 names with fax number, phone number, mobile number, e-mail etc. Battery is standard, Li-Ion 600 mAh (BL-5X). His talk time is up to 3h and his stand-by is up to 190h. You can find Nokia 8800 in one color: Silver, Black Edition (for the Russian market).

Epilogue

keypad Nokia 8800 offers integrated handsfree speaker, XHTML browser, polyphonic and MP3 ringtones. Featuring a 3D image engine for enhanced graphics, it should also be mentioned that playing games on the 8800 is a surprisingly pleasant experience, both in terms of loading speed and visual performance.

If style is what matters to you, then you may love the Nokia 8800, but there are too many issues to ignore, particularly battery life and poor audio quality.
