    In downtown Seattle today I saw my first Nokia 8801 "wrapped" bus! (available at T-Mobile) Many companies are advertising in Seattle and other cities by wrapping public transit. In Seattle I've seen ads for many things including an "iPod" bus as well as ads for local plumbing company as well as "Jobdango" a job placing outfit.

    Here's a link to the concept: http://transit.metrokc.gov/am/advertising.html

    Yes, Nokia and T-Mobile are heavily promoting this phone. In addition to wrapping buses, they have full back cover ads in recent issues of the NY Times Magazine and The New Yorker. To me, it's an expensive phone with underwhelming features. I don't think its stylish looks make up for: no quad-band, no WiFi, medium res camera, no memory expansion, etc. But to each his/her own.

    Here's something else to consider even though I don't know if it's based in any kind of reality. Thinking back on what happened with the Moto Razr/V3. The V3 was basically "first generation" Razr/V3 and then other versions came out that had additional features such as a megapixel camera, additions of other things as well. Perhaps there will be a revision to the 8800/8801 that will include more au courant features and not just a "pretty face." Just a thought.

    I never seen a phone wrap before... but wrapping is not all that new though. I know in Atlanta, MARTA has wrapped a few of its buses with MetroPCS ads before; I think now that they just keep ads within the buses and trains lol. When IKEA came debuted in ATL, some of the train cars were wrapped also.
    Now the buses have TVs (installed free of charge) inside the buses and trains; riders get to watch the local news, listen to music (via personal radios) and subject the captive audience to ads. The agencies use these types of advertising to add revenue; In Atlanta, ads have allowed MARTA to maintain the present fares; Even in Tallahassee, they are wrapping buses as well.lol
