Nokia Announces New Luxury Slider

Article Comments  14

Nokia today announced a new high end phone that softens the long running 8000 series sliders with smoky glass and gentle lighting. The 8600 Luna has a form similar to the 8801 sold in the US last year, however the front cover of the slide is now glass instead of metal, and the phone itself has been updated to quad-band GSM/EDGE, a 2 Megapixel camera, and a QVGA display. The Luna also includes Bluetooth, a 2.5mm audio jack, and is one of the first Nokias to combine charging and data into a MicroUSB port - which Motorola has recently switched to as well.

Is it just me, or. . .

Do the other 2 phones (6500 Classic & Slide) seem far more attractive than the 8600?

1 gb of internal storage? That's kinda cool, as is the 3.2 autofocus camera on the Slide. Now if they added S60 and/or 3G, that'd be neato. Or even better, if they made such a device with US 3G. Or even better than that, if they took my N75 as a trade in for such a device. Wink

But yeah - 8600: really expensive for no reason. Eh? Confused Shocked
I think it might be expensive because Nokia considers it part of their designer phones, that's why the gave it the name Luna, how often does Nokia name they're phones, ...not often.

But right, still not worth it. hopefully Nokia will get the messen...

For $1000 I need a real camea

...I don't care if it's made of glass!
good thing the price is only $700. you can buy a digital camera with the left over ~$250 after taxes.

Damn!!! That's how much this phone cost???

Heck the N95 costs less than a $1,000, and that is far more feature packed!

I'd never pay a $1,000 for any phone, I've paid $50 for mine though, and I'm happy with it.

Does it still have the two little peanut batteries?

Cause those were the worst part of the 8800...

Bring back the 8860 and 8890!!!

Those were the pimpest phones ever. Just update them, add a QVGA screen and 2 MP camera and have them run S60. Make it one of the N series, but keep it looking pretty much the same as the original!
