Nokia to offer special edition 5800 XpressMusic

AllAboutSymbian has the scoop on a new special edition coming soon for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.

With the phone company's Finnish heritage, it's perhaps not surprising that they are offering a model that can be used in the sauna.

The Nokia 5800 "Sauna Edition" uses the same basic hardware as the original model but with a new anti-humidity case coating and a built-in thermometer/hygrometer application known as Nokia "Löyly".

The Sauna Edition is heat resistant up to 120 degrees Celsius as well as being impervious to sauna humidity.

The company is currently exploring options to offer the device through spas, in promotional bundles with products such as aromatherapy oil, and is considering a way of controlling a sauna's settings through the phone's Bluetooth.

We will keep you posted.
