Nokia 7070 Prism, stylish midrange phones
Generally, Nokia made the Prism series to create higher-quality midrange phones that look and feel classier than they really are. They’re affordable, flashy, and weird enough to be cool. And it looked like the whole Prism series was moving up in the world, with the most recent Nokia 7900 Crystal Prism getting the 8800 Sapphire star treatment.
Subsequently came the Nokia 7070 Prism.
The 7070 Prism approximately appears like an attempt to bring a
nicer-than-usual phone to the masses. That is, the masses of emerging
markets throughout the world where the rivers run red with Nokia 2600
phones. And dirt cheap isn’t quite the right term for the 7070. At 50
euros, that’s being way too nice.
Not quite sure how you can go from a Prism designed by some famous Italian guy, to a 50 euro handset.
In any case, the 7070′s a dual-band
(900/1800, 850/1900) flip phone that has a “stylish thin design” (15.8
mm). It’s a Series 40 phone, and has a 128×160 pixel display (no outer
display on this bad boy). Like most of Nokia’s emerging market phones,
there’s a prepaid tracker application to measure call times and how much
The BL-4B battery (700 mAh) does provide enough juice for up to 5 hours of talk time and 480 hours of standby time.
