Nokia's 6205 Dark Knight Edition: Batty

As per all other theme-phones, the Nokia 6205 Dark Knight Edition will come pre-loaded with suitably Batty wallpapers, voice tones, screensavers and - of course - the film's trailer.

The phone has 58MB of on-board storage for all this stuff, though there's room for more if buyers add a Micro SD card of up to 4GB in capacity.

The 6205 has a 2in, 262,000-colour display and a 1.3-megapixel camera. It has a speakerphone facility, and A2DP Bluetooth stereo to support wireless earphones.

The Nokia 6205 Dark Knight Edition will be available online for $120, but you get $50 back immediately if you sign up for a new two-year contract, Verizon said.

The regular, white-and-blue version of the 6205 goes on sale in the US next month. The Dark Knight is released on 18 July.
