The Nokia 8800 (type RM-13, codenamed Q[1]) is a luxury Series 40 phone announced by Nokia on 7 April 2005 and released in October of the same year.

The 8800 was made out of very premium materials, such as a stainless-steel housing, and a scratch-resistant glass-protected screen. It also has a "sophisticated slide mechanism", which used premium ball bearings that were made by the same makers who made bearings for high-performance cars.

An improved version named the 8800 Sirocco Edition was released in 2006. It featured a redesigned fascia and was available in gold and queen black. It upgrades the camera to 2 megapixels, updates the keypad design, and now has ringtones composed by Brian Eno and the Series 40 version upgraded to 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1, making it the only S40v3 phone to use a square display. A 24-carat gold plated edition was released in 2007, which was priced at 2,049 USD.
