  • The Nokia 8600 Luna is keen to disarm and seduce. The unconventional materials used, the creative design, the rather practical set of accessories are hard enough to resist. Plus, the Luna is so largely unaffordable that it’s tempting. This pretty much sums up what the Nokia 8-series is really about. Maximum functionality has never been the issue. What counts is exclusivity and departure from the commonplace. The prodigal set of the Nokia 8800 and Nokia 8800 Sirocco has grown with the Nokia 8600 Luna expanding the premium segment.
  • Entertainment? Just an accessory:-
    The Luna has an integrated MP3 player, but it’s hardly an entertainment-driven device, given the mediocre headphones and scarce memory. It still gives you a couple of albums to enjoy yourself at times of boredom. Random mode and repeat are available, sound is adjustable through a few preset and two user-defined equalizers. An integrated FM radio comes handy once you’ve run out of stored tracks, but there’s no RDS regrettably.
  • Forget about the features:-
    Luna is impossible to compare to regular handsets. There’s a lot lacking in terms of functionality: memory card, Mass Storage mode, miniUSB, 3G support, high-quality camera. Quite a few downsides, but all those seem exactly the functions people likely to buy a Luna will usually overlook. There are plenty of lifestyle gadgets to do all those jobs.
    And then, the Luna has some aspects worth praising: the perfect display, fast user interface and exquisite bodywork. The handset is beautifully crafted and probably very durable. After all, the Luna excels at what it will be most likely used for: calling, messaging, and getting noticed. No doubt about that last one.
