The batphone, it's real. Alright, let's not exaggerate, this is just a Lumia 800 with an etched Batman logo on the back and some fancy packaging, but boy, does it stimulate one's inner superhero geek. The extremely limited (I've got number 16 of 40 around the globe) Lumia 800 Dark Knight Rises edition celebrates Christopher Nolan's reboot of the dark hero franchise with a set of preloaded wallpapers and a new DKR tile on the Windows Phone homescreen. Nokia promises that'll be the place where owners of the handset will receive updates on the film's progress toward release next year, though at the moment it just invites you to visit the Dark Knight Rises website. Besides the etching on the back, which features a rougher and even darker texture than the phone's smooth matte covering, the silicon case for this phone also has a bat logo carved into it. As usual, Nokia gets top marks for presentation and style. And since this particular smartphone will never be on sale, we don't have to worry about it being unreasonably priced either!
