Nokia does Lamborghini edition

Just latest of many new designs from the phone maker

Sybarites

In the hypercompetitive phone market, Nokia has apparently decided to take an Uzi-style approach and shoot at any design that moves. In the last few days alone, we've seen a " Powder Pink " model with a rotating display, a " Diamond Edition " in 24k gold and, now, a limited-run Lamborghini handset.

Like many other special editions, the stainless steel version of Nokia's 8800 Sirocco involves little change from the standard line other than some cosmetic effects, such as special Lamborghini ring tones. But Nokia does make one original claim, according to luxury blog Sybarites: "This phone features special Lamborghini made ball bearings in the slider mechanism." We'll take their word for it.
