Complex form with practical features
With the 7070, Nokia has done away with the excess features that plague most phones and leaves a smart detailed etching on the front of the phone. The prism design is what makes this phone stand out, and the beauty isn’t just skin deep with grooves that cut into the plastic of the phones. As much as you’d probably like to use this phone all the time and have others stare at its amazing design when it’s in your pocket you’ll hardly notice its petite 15mm wide and 78g in weight measurement.
This is the perfect phone for people who want a simple to use phone for making and answering calls. The way the phone is laid out is evidence of this because the call and end buttons are clearly marked underneath the menu buttons in order to reduce confusion. The number pad buttons are composed of triangular shapes in line with the prism design which is very attractive.
Though light on features, this phone certainly doesn’t skimp on the important stuff. For example, with the phone book you can easily input your friends’ data. The speakerphone emits audio at a strong loud volume. And of course games are included so that you can spend some free time trying to the get the high score.
Nokia Prism phone for the emerging markets
With the industry's largest portfolio of mobile phones and support for more than 80 languages, more than one billion people worldwide currently use a Nokia device. In recent years, the majority of first-time buyers have come from the emerging markets. However, a significant shift is underway - while the first-time buyer market continues to grow, the number of replacement buyers- consumers seeking to replace their current mobile phone with a newer, more advanced model - has also grown substantially in emerging markets. In 2008, Nokia anticipates that for the first time, the number of replacement purchases in emerging markets will exceed those of first-time buyers.
Nokia Prism mobile phone:
"People in emerging markets like Africa are increasingly demanding more from their mobile phone - their expectations and demands in terms of functionality and design are similar to people in any other part of the world - they simply have less income at their disposal," says Alex Lambeek, Vice President, Entry, who oversees Nokia's efforts in emerging markets. "From the introduction of Nokia's most affordable megapixel cameraphone, to a localized email solution in South Africa, we believe today's announcements demonstrate Nokia's firm commitment to bringing products and services that serve the varied needs and tastes of people in emerging markets."
