Nokia 8600 on Sale

Carphone Warehouse has begun selling the Nokia 8600, a new phone that translates the 8800 Sirocco's design to a mid-range device. As shown through early ads, the handset draws on the sliding keypad cover of the 8800 but uses a unique smoked glass shell that shows the keys underneath; predictions for the internals were also validated and very close to the higher-end model. A 2-megapixel camera, EDGE Internet access, and music playback either for MP3 files (through 128MB of onboard memory or microSD) as well as FM radio. Bluetooth with stereo support helps for wireless headphones and speakers.

The 8600 is available today through Carphone for subscribers to O2 for free with certain contracts but the equivalent of $595 with shorter and more limited plans. Despite this, however, Nokia has yet to officially release the device and has declined comment on the new offer. The presence of a quad-band GSM radio will let the phone reach North America sometime after its official debut.
