We're running out of superlatives to describe the handsets produced by fashion experts Goldstriker. Bling, fancy, premium, expensive, we've used them all. However, their latest creation takes the unusual step of giving the phone a new name, rather than previous models that simply described what they had done to the handset (e.g. the 24ct gold LG Secret or the gold and leather iPhone). The Nokia Passion has been designed around the Nokia 8800 Arte but while the Arte was no slouch in the looks department the Passion sports 40 grams of hallmarked 925 sterling silver handmade veneers, sterling silver dressings and 60 Swarovski crystals.
Obviously a handset of this prestige comes at a price, a cool £1,995. However, you can bask in the knowledge that you will be one of only 250 people to own one. As with the Arte, the Nokia Passion sports a 3.15-megpaixel camera, 1GB of internal memory, as well as 3G.
The Nokia Passion is available from today from www.goldstriker.co.uk.
