Mystery surrounds a 'high fashion' Nokia handset after making a brief appearance on the Carphone website, then disappearing today.
The phone in question was on the retailer's 'coming soon' section of the website and was called the Nokia High Fashion phone. The phone was so new, it didn't even have a model number, according to Carphone.
When Mobile queried Nokia about the handset, the manufacturer said it didn't know about the phone in question. 'It isn't any product we have announced,' a Nokia spokesman said.
The handset disappeared from the website soon after Mobile's conversation with the manufacturer. Carphone said it constantly reviews the website and handsets and was unaware of an issue with the manufacturer.
Meanwhile a distribution source claimed he had seen the handset in question. 'It's got a glass screen and is built on the same form factor as the Sirocco.' He said he believed it would have a late summer release.
