Excerpt: A long time has passed since Nokia dared to introduce such an innovative design that users can admire when looking at the 7500 and 7900 Prism handsets. At a first glance, you might have the impression that there something wrong with the keypad, but the triangular form of the keys is quite comfortable, giving a stylish sensibility to the mobile phone. The unusual bar form of the Prism devices intends to twist people�s minds and conquer the market.
Pros: I won't say anything about its design as people might not consider it good looking at all�on the contrary. What I have noticed using this phone is its high functionality and easy to use interface, things that are characteristic to the Nokia brand. Besides its good camera, the sound quality is more than I expected from a mid-level Nokia handset.
Cons: The only thing that really bothers me is the low battery life which will seriously limit this phone's functionality and will utterly force you to buy a supplemental battery. Furthermore, the microSD slot card has been placed right under the battery, thus it isn't hot-swappable.
Excerpt: Nokia 7500 image mobile phone is unique in terms of design and is aimed at lovers of innovative solutions. The prototype form of the Nokia 7500 prism has become a faceted gem, shimmering in the sun. This model is a good example, where attention to the design is not detrimental to the technical specifications. Nokia 7500 prism plays melodies in the AAC, AAC +, eAAC +, MP3, MP4, (SP) MIDI, (WB-) AMR, WMA, XMF formats and polyphony of 64 voices.
Excerpt: Nokia has officially announced the release of the Prism handsets: Nokia 7900 and Nokia 7500. Both models are peculiar for their unusual geometry design. They will be available in stores in 3Q 2007 at the approximate price of €400 for Nokia 7900 Prism and €210 for Nokia 7500 Prism (taxes not included).
Summary: The volume of 72-tone polyphony is enough for almost any conditions. It also does fine on the reception front, as it stands up to all other phones of the current generation. The silent alarm is average strength-wise, but can be still felt while the handset is in pocket.
The phone is currently retailing for around 210 Euro or 370-400 USD (in Russia). This is a milestone product for Nokia, its advertising campaign kicks off in October.
Summary: Remember the beautiful L'Amour collection Nokia introduced in late 2005? Those exquisite phones were a strong testament to Nokia's ability to fashion exciting and aesthetically appealing phones. Of course, there are several phones in the N-series that are just as exciting too. The latest wacky design to emerge from the design think-tank of Nokia is the Nokia 7500 Prism, and this is a mobile phone that is certain to raise eyebrows.
Excerpt: Being style conscious is paramount these days. If you can dress fashionably, why not have accessories that complement your style? And what better accessory to complement your Guccis and Pradas than your mobile phone? No socialite, page 3 wannabe, or for that matter anyone with a decent fashion sense, would wish to be caught dead without a cool phone that makes just such a statement.
Excerpt: Nokia is well known to make a chic design on their mobile phone. Now they have introduced Nokia 7500 Prism. A rather geometrically inspired design, Nokia created another worldâ€™s first in the world of mobile phones to be included in the Nokiaâ€™s fashion phone line up. The Nokia 7500 Prism would be the lowest priced Nokia Fashion phone. The Nokia 7500 Prism is not like any of the usual classic design we see from Nokia.
Conclusion: We were left with the impression that this phone is for the lovers of the attractive design or, rather, shape. The appearance of the device is what attracts, but, nevertheless, Nokia did not miss the main things for a modern device – camera, music and video player. If you are looking for a phone for taking photos and, as a whole, for a multimedia device, you can quietly pass by it because it is not designated to satisfy such needs.
Pros: Memorable and original design, Good display
Cons: Slow when taking photos, Hard to press joystick and volume keys, Tri-band
