Nokia unveiled a new high-end mobile phone, the Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte that is made of carbon fiber, titanium, polished glass and stainless steel. The phone has a unique tap-for-time feature that lets consumers tap the steel surface below the display and a clock appears on the screen. The 3G phone has a 3.2 megapixel camera and 4GB of memory.

But all these special features come with a special price. The phone retails for about $1,620 and will be available in Europe in the third quarter.

Nokia isn't the only OEM using carbon fiber for its handsets. LG introduced the "Secret" handset earlier this year which is made of carbon fiber and tempered glass. [FierceWireless]
