Nokia has just unveiled their latest phone, the 8600 Luna. It's unique in that its defining feature is glass … it's got a transparent smoked glass sliding mechanism that keeps the keypad visible when the phone is closed, with sexy results.

As for the inside (it's what counts, after all), it's a quad-band GSM phone with a 2-megapixel camera, an OLED screen and a microUSB port. No other details to be had, but hey, it's pretty! Is it pretty enough to warrant the nearly $950 price tag? No, no it isn't. It'll be hitting Europe in the second quarter, and there's no word on a Stateside release.

@hageshiku:

According to the fact sheet on the product page -

The Nokia 8600 is expected to be available during the 2nd quarter of 2007 at an estimated retail price of €700 before taxes and subsidies.

My guess is the 79.99 price is "with plan/contract."
