Nokia 8801

Nokia was in town yesterday, and while we're always happy to spend an hour kicking with them at the W, what really dragged us out of Engadget HQ was the prospect of getting our hands on the 8801, their new stainless steel handset. Like a few of you predicted, the stainless steel did get a little smudgy, but we have to admit that otherwise phone felt pretty nice in the hand, and altogether it felt very solid and had a good center of gravity when slid open. The 8801 won't hit stores until September, but Nokia's rep told us it'll probably cost around $700 before carrier subsidy (though that price could go down between now and then). Power users won't be satisfied with the 8801's lack of top-level features (there's no memory card slot, for instance), but Nokia doesn't care, they're going after the fashionista crowd with this one.

Now on to the pics!
