Espoo, Finland - Drawing upon modern watchmaking and jewelry techniques, Nokia has unveiled a truly inspired mobile phone for today's connoisseurs of quality and taste.

This attention to detail continues Nokia's heritage of premium mobile phones that have set the industry standard for elegance and performance.

a local brand OKWAP has been making handset for Ma Tsu, one of the folk belief / religion in Taiwan and South East China. what they did is not only producing screen saver and ringtone related to Ma Tsu, but actually placing thousands of Ma Tsu handsets in the Ma Tsu main temple for her blessing. It somehow works...especially in the "Halloween Month" on the Chinese lunar calendar!

Cool, wish I could see a photo of the phone design already...

Thanks for the links. Photo said Credit Nokia so I guess it's OK for me to snag it...
