A professional who deals with matters relating to the shiny rocks that women and rappers love to stare at has sent an email to Nokia requesting a correction to a recent press release stating that the Sapphire inside the 8800 Sapphire Arte is genuine. Nokia emailed him back saying:
“Thank you very much for your email and your expertise. Based on your suggestion, we have revised our communication materials to reflect the usage of man-made sapphire. We will still keep the reference to sapphire (Mono Crystalline Aluminum Oxide) for the Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte but have removed the mention of gemstone.”
First of all, sick burn. The press release however is still stating that the Sapphire is a gem stone.
Just a FYI to people crazy enough to spend that kind of cash, I figure you pay that premium for a reason.
