PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of today's news, this is my favourite Nokia device of all time. The 8800 was gallery play in design, construction, and attention to detail. Not even today's phones come even close to how beautiful, sleek, and incredibly sturdy the 8800 felt. I reviewed it for OSNews way back in 2006.

The slider mechanism used ball bearings. Ball bearings.

I think I remember seeing this phone in person as well. We had a Nokia "experience" store at a mall. They didn't actually sell phones there, and you couldn't get this phone from any US carrier, so I'm not sure why they had these stores.

I agree, the phone felt awesome, but when I looked it up online and it was like $900 which at the time was unheard of.
