Super-sexy Nokia will cost more than iPhone

A Nokia phone made of smoked glass and black stainless steel will be available in the US for about $800 this summer.

The quad-band GSM/EDGE Luna 8600 slider features nearly opaque smoked glass, soft-touch stainless steel, and keypad illumination that pulsates from beneath the glass case when the phone is in standby mode. When you slide the Luna open, the phone’s tactile-feedback keypad emerges from a smoked-glass housing.

“Much like the Nokia 8600 Luna that we named in her honor, Luna, the goddess of moonlight, was often represented by the Romans as a mysteriously captivating beauty encircled in a soft, yet radiant light," said Nokia spokesman Heikki Norta.

The premium phone will be Nokia’s first phone to use a single micro-USB port that merges charging, audio and data connectivity into a single connection. The phone also features 2.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, and playback of music in the MP3 and AAC family of formats.
