A Dark Knight edition of the Windows Phone-powered Nokia Lumia 900 is going on sale this week, tying in with the Batman movie hitting silver screens this summer.

The bat-powered blower is available exclusively from Phones 4u from 1 June, and has the iconic Batman logo etched into its matte-black rear. Not the most subtle calling card for a masked crimefighter, but, y'know, Batman!

Apart from the branded logo, you get limited-edition packaging, the official Dark Knight Rises movie app (a promo video for which is embedded below), character wallpapers and ringtones, and if you buy the phone in June you get two tickets to see the film when it comes out.

The bad news is this crime-fighting phone is pricey enough to make even Bruce Wayne cough up his canapé -- £600 gets you the SIM-free version (the non-Batman version costs £450 on Amazon), while expect to shell out £31 per month on contract. It's the phone you deserve, but at these prices, is it the one you need right now?

This isn't Nokia's first bat-phone -- the Finnish company already made a Batman-themed Lumia 800. It only made 40 of them however, and as our in-depth tests proved, you can't even use it shine the Bat-symbol into the sky. The 4.3-inch Lumia 900 is unlikely to be much help when it comes to dispatching goons, but it can take a nail or two.

The Dark Knight Rises movie, meanwhile, is the final effort in Chris Nolan's trilogy, and if the opening sequence is anything to go by, it's going to be another belter. Fingers crossed, Bat-fans.

Phones 4u is running its own little promotion for the flick -- buy a Lumia phone and you'll be entered into a competition to win tickets to the movie premiere. If you simply can't wait until tomorrow to get your mitts on the phone, you can pre-order it today.
