Nokia is about to unleash its 8800. First the VERTU "Constellation", then the 8800 Titanium Special Edition and now the Sirocco.
This improved version of the 8800 has a 2 megapixel camera, a slightly better battery life and something described as a "premium user interface". Premium user interface... hummm, does that mean that all other Nokia phones are less than premium? Interesting, I wonder if the Vertu "Constellation" is worth it at all. It was meant to be a better and improved version of the 8800 a way to fill a gap between the 8800 and the Vertu "Ascent", but since Nokia is already doing that... why bother? For the Concierge service, you say! Well, you don't need to have a Vertu to have Concierge service since it can be contracted by anybody with any kind of phone. Yes the Concierge service is really subcontracted by Nokia, it costs about a thousand bucks a year for something that unless you live in the UK or US is a total waste of your well earned money. The only advantage now over the 8800 is that the Vertu is quadband, but I suspect that there is a 8800i in the works that will have that feature included.
Other than that it's the same'ol 8800.
p.s. I swear I am not going to mention phones again... for the rest of this month.
