Nokia 7705 Twist
Nokia 7705 Twist a cool phone with a unique design that swivel to open revealing a full QWERTY keypad.The handset is wide enough to hold in two hands, large space bar is conveniently located in the center of the bottom row.Near the space bar are a shift key, a back button, a function key for typing numbers in a message, and a return control.
The 7705 Twist has been tailored for easy and quick messaging on the move. the Twist comes along with a customizable Contact Light Ring,it glows with multicolored light when you receive a call from a contact in your phone book. On the messaging front it also features threaded messages, as seen in the upcoming Nokia X3, to help you keep better track on active conversations. While email, IM, MMS and SMS are all ticked, the 7705 Twist is also blog-savvy, enabling you to communicate with the world via a simple ‘post to blogs’ feature that also can fire out your snaps and text to social network sites.
Outside of its circle of messaging talents the 7705 Twist comes with a 3.0 megapixel camera in tow, with autofocus, flash and self-timer – the flat-edged design lets you stand it on its end, meaning you can capture group shots using the timer to ensure you’re in them too.
Plus, it supports V CAST Video Streaming and Video on Demand, as well as VCAST Music with Rhapsody.
The Nokia 7705 Twist will go on sale online via www.verizonwireless.com on 13 September and in Verizon stores on 21 September for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.
The good: The Nokia Twist 7705 has a decent range of features, a comfortable keyboard, and admirable call quality.
The bad: The Nokia Twist 7705 has a polarizing design with a small display and a 2.5-millimeter headset jack. Its photo quality is poor, its streaming video frame size is small, and its call volume could be louder.
The bottom line: The Nokia Twist 7705’s bizarre design won’t be for everyone, but it pulls through with decent features and good call quality. On the other hand, it’s not a practical Internet or multimedia device.
