Nokia has unveiled yet another colour for its current flagship smartphone, the Nokia N8. Already available in five colours (dark grey, silver white, green, blue, orange), the N8’s anodized aluminium body has now been given a pink hue. The pink N8 will ship will Symbian Anna on board, but for now, no exact availability date has been mentioned.
While Nokia doesn’t say flat out that the new colour for the Nokia N8 is an attempt to capture the female demographic, it’s kind of obvious that is what they intend. In an absurd look at the possible internal workings of the product department, we think it must have received countless hate mails from females – “You launched the phone in so many colours, but none of them match my favourite dress!” The phone sitting on a purse in the PR shot below, must help too. If you have two X chromosomes, let us know what you think in the comments section below.
In all seriousness though, there is more evidence that points towards the pink N8 being geared towards women, with some special womanly features – a special Little Pink Diva theme, and, a fashion app from Elle. Incidentally, and conveniently, pink was also voted the Pantone 2011 Colour of the Year.
Speaking about the choice of colour, Rachael Bell, a senior designer at Nokia, said:
“Following the fantastic response to the range of colors we launched for the Nokia N8, it seemed a natural step to extend this choice. The Nokia N8 in pink complements the original line up well with its expressive, intense hue.&rdquo
