PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have been wanting to test and use this phone ever since it came out, in 2005. So when Hi-Mobile.net provided us with the opportunity to review the Nokia 8801, I did not think twice about accepting the review. Usually, Eugenia does our phone reviews, since she knows a lot more about phones than the rest of the staff does; however, this phone is not a phone which you can dissect feature-for-feature, assessing its potential based on what it can do. No, this phone focusses on style, exclusivity, and stunning looks. Read on for the complete review.

I have to agree with you. I've seen 8800 and I don't personally like it at all and the price is ridiculously expensive for a *phone*! If you want style? Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson.

I agree as well. I have seen this phone first hand and it is honestly not for me. Now I know each to his/her own, but this phone is so highly overrated it is sickening. I purchased a Sony Ericsson P990i and I love using that phone. For 650 USD you can be a proud owner of that as well. But then again it is not perfect either, but it has a lot more functionality than the 8800 that is for sure. I realize they are two different category phones, but still...

The niggle with the Sony Ericsson is software. It is still a bit unstable for my taste.
