Nokia’s 7705 Twist is so Hip, It’s Square

by Tobey Grumet Segal on September 22, 2009

Nokia 7705 Twist showing keyboard revealedVerizon’s latest communications-centric phone, the Nokia 7705 Twist, swivels open to deliver a full QWERTY keyboard in a bite-size (2.7-inch square) package. The swivel point in the lower right corner of the phone doubles as a "Contact Light" ring, which glows in six different colors to let you know who is calling or who left a message.

The built-in camera takes 3MP stills or video, which you can then immediately share on your blog or social networking page with the Post to Blog feature. A mirror is revealed when the phone is open for taking self-portraits or just checking your teeth after a meal.

As one of Verizon’s 3G models, it can browse the web and access all of Verizon’s media services, including V CAST Music with Rhapsody and V CAST Video.

The shiny black phone comes with Xpress-on Covers in black and purple, weighs just 3.4 ounces and gets 270 minutes talk time. Available from Verizon for $99 (after $50 mail-in rebate, with a two-year contract).

I LOVE this. I bought the Verizon Blitz a few months ago but this is so much better. Hopefully, they’ll have a QWERTY flip by the time I’m up for renewal smile
