Batphone Goes Mobile

The old school batphone (pic 2) was nothing short of brilliant, but it's almost 2012 people and a giant, flashing dog and bone just won't cut it for the caped crusader these days.

As such Commissioner Gordon (and for Commissioner Gordon read: Nokia) has, erm commissioned Batman with a new phone (and for Batman read: 40 lucky people).

That's right, 40 limited edition Batman mobile phones have been released to tie in with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.

Journalists (not us by the way, noted) in London were shown six minutes of the forthcoming Batman epic at the IMAX in Waterloo, where they were also given the chance to see the gadget.

The handset is basically a Lumia 800 with a Dark Knight logo carved on the back.
