milking its older models endlessly with ultra-limited-run special editions -- a shame, really, considering that they've had the 3G-capable Ascent Ti in the stable since last year. If you're going to spend thousands (sometimes, tens or hundreds of thousands) of dollars on a ridiculously over-the-top handset, it may as well at least ride the UMTS wave, yeah? Finally, the wealthy have an opportunity to have their cake and eat it too thanks to the Nokia division's new Checked and Knurled versions of the Ascent Ti, which as you might guess, are checked and knurled, respectively. It might be more than a gimmick, too, since they're probably easier to keep a grip on than the standard model -- so whip out those checkbooks, clumsy rich people.
