Nokia 7900 Prism

 Nokia 7900 Discontinued
7th August 2007

Closely related to the Nokia 7500, the Nokia 7900 Prism is a 3G fashion phone with a radical design that some people will love, and others will probably loath. The 7900 uses a lot of metal in its construction, including an aluminium back cover and laser etched detailing.

The Nokia 7900 Prism is a dual-band UMTS/quad-band GSM phone, giving it useful worldwide capabilities when it comes to wireless communications. On the back is a 2 megapixel camera with flash, and inside is an impressive 1GB of memory, although this is not expandable.

 Nokia 7900 Prism The screen on the Nokia 7900 is a little different from most, as it uses an 240x320 pixel OLED display rather than the traditional TFT LCD. OLED gives much lower power consumption (which always useful) but in the past this type of display has been criticised for its short lifespan, particularly with blue colours which typically last for only around 5000 hours (200 days) of continuous use. A fuller explanation of the pros and cons of OLED can be found here.

There are plenty of lighting effects with the Nokia 7900 Prism - the display changes colours according to the time of day, battery life and signal strength. The 7900 also has an illuminated keypad that coordinates with the display. Whether or not people will stare at the phone muttering "it's-so-beautiful" remains to be seen.

The Nokia 7900 Prism is quite a slim 3G phone at 11.3mm thick, it's slightly taller than average at 112 mm too. The 7900 weighs 101 grams and has up to 3 hours talktime with a maximum of 10 days standby time. The Nokia 7900 has Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE plus of course a multimedia player, web browser and email client.

Nokia say that the 7900 Prism is slated to be available sometime during Q3 2007 at a price of around €400 before tax and subsidy.
