Nokia has got some front. The 8800 Carbon Arte is an S40-toting handset retailing at over a grand. Who, especially in these cash-strapped days, is going to spend more than a thousand quid on a SIM-free mobile phone? A year ago I drew a sharp intake of br...

Ditch the manbag, fashion fans: Nokia's new style mobile is the thing to be seen with this season. From the illuminated keypad to the precision glass and metal sliding body, the Arte oozes quality.

That's a bad thing on a phone with a camera and music player, but really it's the only stain on the 8800 Arte's flashy clothes....
