I’ve loved Aston Martins since I first saw one in the classic 1964 Goldfinger movie. Aston Martins being only slightly (in my wildest dreams) priced above what I can afford, the new Aston Martin limited edition Nokia 8800 handset might the closest I ever get. So what’s so special about it? Encased in stainless steel with a laser etched Aston Martin logo on the front, it comes with tri-band GSM/GPRS and EDGE support, a 1MP camera, a Nokia desk stand with the words Power, Beauty & Soul laser etched on, MP3-playing capabilities, a 208×262 screen, a selection of Aston Martin wallpaper and screensaver graphics, an animated screensaved based on the crystal starter button found in all Aston Martin models, a short documentary video and ring tones evocative of the V8 Vantage 380 horsepower V8 engine.
How can you resist? The Aston Martin limited edition Nokia 8800 handset is available for about $1400 USD ($1600 CAD).
