Nokia 8800 Sirocco


The Nokia 8800 was the ultimate luxury fashion phone, but lacked feature finesse. Its successor, the Sirocco, looks to redress the balance…

One of the most beautifully built handsets on the market

No memory card slot, which seriously limits its music and multimedia storage potential

Nokia has added substance to the Sirocco's undoubtedly elegant style.

The shape of the rest below the screen was changed as well now it's not just a curve barely sticking out of the display's surface. Pressing the sides of this curve reveals pretty-much comfortable soft-keys mounted on the ends. Your finger will hardly...

The 8800 Sirocco Edition is clearly for the style buyer. It's a great looking phone, but offers nothing outstanding for the asking price.

Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition Preview


As an upgrade to the original 8800, the Sirocco Edition features a slight facelift that, we particularly think, makes the phone look sleeker and more stylish. The improved tactile response and design of the keypad are a good idea by Nokia, but it's...

Review: Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition


Nokia's glamorous 8800 fashion phone received an update in the form of the Sirocco Edition. Now sporting a 2.0 megapixel camera and refreshed design, Sam brings us a detailed review of this stainless steel masterpiece.

Exclusive design, excellent build, FM radio, timed profile support

Over-priced, outdated UI, lack of memory card slot
