Toy Box: My name is phone. Titanium phone

This is the phone James Bond would have if he had a cellphone. Or rather, this is the phone Simon Templar would have if he hadn't been embarrassed by being played by Val Kilmer.

Nokia has taken the basic idea of the 7110, keys hidden under the slide, and made it work.

While the 7110 was plagued with problems, the 8910 is built out of titanium, giving it far more strength so you shouldn’t have problems infiltrating the headquarters of any nefarious organisation with it. Also it looks really, really cool.

It comes equipped with GPRS (43kbit/s, according to the website), Bluetooth compatibility and voice-activated calling, as well as Nokia’s PC Suite so you can synch it with your address book and calendar functions if that so pleases you.

It could be good if you’re in the habit of losing your phone and want to keep all your numbers backed up, but I wouldn’t recommend that with the 8910, because at around $2500 this is a one-time-only purchase.

The ring tones are a tad high-pitched. In fact, I’m sure some are only audible to dogs, which is probably a good thing considering the way the rest sound. You can of course buy your own tones so you can have 007’s theme playing or perhaps the more subtle theme to The Saint. Roger Moore, of course.
