Every Trekkie Will Want This Amazing Star Trek Communicator Smartphone Accessory

Star Trek has a lot of cool technology that we don’t have today, such as warp drives, tractor beams and teleportation.

That said, diehard Trekkies will nonetheless love a brilliant new smartphone accessory unveiled this week that will give them the ability to look just like Captain Kirk while they’re talking to friends on the phone.

Nokia announces 5800 Star Trek edition, complete with phaser

Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic might have first appeared in The Dark Knight but as much as our Finnish friends love product placement, it looks like its first S60 5th Edition phone might be making another cameo on the big screen. Nokia has just revealed it will be releasing a special Star Trek edition of the popular touchscreen phone — which will be free on contract with Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and O2 — featuring special Star Trek animated screen savers, three Star Trek wallpapers and eight exclusive Trek-themed ringtones. It also packs an exclusive phaser application but sadly, no teleporting capabilities. The 5800 Star Trek edition might not be able to beam you anywhere but all your Trekkie pals will surely be envious when you brandish it at the next Star Trek convention. Just make sure you sneak away to a corner when you use it to call your mom for a ride home.
