Nokia Oro Gold-Plated Symbian Phone
Nokia introduces in selected markets the Nokia Oro Smartphone.
It’s a premium brand product that incorporates 18-carat gold plating, a sapphire crystal and leather from one of Scotland’s finest Caledonian herds.
Too bad the operating system running inside is Symbian-based – can anyone say boo? Never mind that it is running on the latest Symbian Anna update, it is still fighting an uphill battle to remain up there with the rest, going against the iOS and Android onslaught.
Featuring pentaband radio connectivity, 3G and Wi-Fi support, a 3.5′ AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera with 720p video recording capability, the specificiations seem quite similar to recent smartphones from Nokia, although the case for its “poshness” cannot be argued.
The Nokia Oro will start to sell in selected countries throughout Europe, China and the Middle East sometime in the third quarter of the year, costing €800($1,128) at the very least.
