The Nokia 6131

The Nokia 6131 NFC (for Near Field Communication) is one stealthy handset. the phone offers pay by touch, touch ticket and other very cool RFID applications inside a conventional phone form factor. Basically they’ve embedded an RFID chip into the top part of the flip lid. We got a heads up on the technology from Richard Humbach, Head of NFC Business in Finland a while back, and it was very interesting.

Nokia released two new 8800 models today, both of which put the previous silver Nokia 8800 to shame. The 8800 Arte and the 8800 Sapphire Arte feature metal and glass bodies based on the Nokia 8600 Luna’s slider design while adding unique design touches of their own. The 8800 Arte sports a simple black finish while the 8800 Sapphire Arte features a sapphire gem stone and a soft leather finish on the bottom half of its front face.

Features are also improved over the original 8800. Included are a 16 million-color display, 3G support, 1GB of integrated memory, a 3.2-megapixel camera and to keep away those pesky finger smudges the handsets feature an anti-fingerprint coating on the metal and glass surfaces. Still another innovative offering is a “turn-to-mute” feature, which allows you to quiet the phone’s ringer by turning it screen-side down.

But all that flash will cost you some cash. The 8800 Arte is 1,000 euros ($1,462) and the 8800 Sapphire Arte is 1,100 euros ($1,682). That’s a lot to pay for a cell phone but you do get a leather puch, a desktop stand and a Nokia BH-803 Blueototh headset.

Nokia NM705i Phone Shows Up at FCC

Here’s a strange one for you. We come across phones destined for the Japanese market all the time. We also see handsets approved by the FCC. It’s rare, however, to see both tidbits applying to the exact same handset.That appears to be the case today, because the Nokia NM705i candybar is getting geared up for launch with NTT DoCoMo in Japan, but at the same time, the mobile phone is making an appearance at the FCC offices, seeking approval. I’d imagine a few radio swaps would be in order for the phone to work in North America, because it has been designed to work with FOMA (WCDMA 2100). Thankfully, ti also has WCDMA 800/850 and quad-band GSM, the latter of which would be lovely for AT&T.

Key features include an on-board FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0, and some sort of camera. No word on pricing or availability.
