Nokia Unveils Lumia 800 Dark Knight Rises
The prologue of the Dark Knight Rises, the final installment of Batman Trilogy is shown to a few lucky people at IMAX cinemas. The prologue promises us an action-packed movie and some of the spectators even get special edition of Lumia 800, the Dark Knight Rises. Both Nokia and Warner Bros. haven’t confirmed whether the phone will be sold to the public in the near future, but it appears that the phone is simply a normal Lumia 800 with an etched Batman logo on the back.
In general, there’s nothing special about the design and the bat logo is too subtle for a special edition phone. However, Nokia may purposely understate the design to make it more desirable and to match the usual noir-ish scenes of Batman movies. This is a more elegant choice than creating a toy-like design with cheesy gimmick. The phone features some wallpapers of the movie and it has an alert system that informs the owner about latest news and events related to the movie. The phone is a great lead up to the movie, which will be released in summer 2012 and we should expect plenty of activities in the near future. Fans of the movie shouldn’t be too excited, because a source said that no more phones will be handed to the public. If the price difference between the phone and the regular Lumia 800 isn’t too great, the Lumia 800 Dark Knight Rises will be a good buy as it’s also a wonderful collectible item.
