Nokia 8800-Erdos

This is going to be my mom’s next mobile phone. She sticks to the Nokia 8800 series. Looks classy. I personally think it’s a line of shiny mobiles that don’t do much, but then I have to admit - they do look classy. Besides, suits mom.

So far, nothing about Erdos on the official Nokia site or on GSM Arena (maybe it’s somewhere there, I just couldn’t find it), but Luxury Launches suggests that this will be out in October.

Nokia is hatching a new 8800 luxury handset that promises to woo its high-profile consumers. Dubbed, Erdos, this cell phone is shaped out of a single piece of bullet silver which is usually known as stainless steel. It stands out for its exclusively deigned keypad that oozes out as the slider slithers down.

The mains specs of Nokia Erdos include:

  • 2.4 inch OLED display with 320 x 240 pixels and 16 million colors
  • Tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band WCDMA connectivity
  • Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • 5MP Carl Zeiss camera with autofocus, dual LED flash and video recording
  • 8GB of internal memory
  • 116.9 x 50.3 x 15 mm

Well, nothing THAT great, but it’s the auto popping (elevating/oozing…. whatever, take your pick) keypad that got me curious. Besides, like I mentioned earlier – as dumb the entire series is, it does look good. Given that I won’t be the one using it at all, and mom will be the one stuck with it, I don’t see a problem. She just needs a mobile phone. It doesn’t have to be an organizer or anything. Just a decent looking mobile that can make and receive calls.

Yes, I know. Simple living high thinking.. bla bla!
