Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but when they inspire designers to use them creatively in mobile phones, then gender knows no bounds. Oslo-based Norwegian jeweler Thomas Heyerdahl has transformed the Nokia 8800 Arte into a masterpiece. With 112 diamonds dotted all over, the Nokia 8800 Diamond will become a prized possession for many. Did you know, this one is Nokia’s first phone with real diamonds? Only 100 pieces with a numbering engraved on the back will be available for sale. This swanky looking phone gets onboard 3G capabilities, a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, and1GB built-in memory space. A unique silencing mechanism is activated when the phone is turned over, screen-side down.
The Nokia 8800 Diamond will be available in Heyerdahl’s stores and selected Nokia outlets for about 30,000 NOK ($ 6,000).
