New Nokia phone includes Scottish cow and Gold plating

Nokia has announced a premium smartphone that has 18 carat gold-plated highlights, a sapphire crystal for the home key and Caledonian leather on the back. It runs the latest Symbian Anna OS with a 3.5-inch reinforced glass AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera with 720p video recording, 3G HSDPA and WiFi.

The Nokia Oro is expected to retail for around 800 Euro SIM-free (£695+VAT) and will go on sale in selected countries across Europe, Eastern Europe, China and the Middle East from Q3 2011. It’s supplied with a gold-plated Bluetooth headset.

In a blog post, Gabriel Speratti, Nokia’s General Manager for Russia, said “premium products like Nokia Oro have always been best sellers in Russia. We have a large number of users who are looking for products with a build quality and superior materials that attest to their success and social standing. In some areas, possession of such premium products is the passport to being taken seriously.”

Pricing depends on the retailer; Nokia anticipates 800 Euro if bought without a contract (which is around £834 incl. VAT in the UK).
