Oct 19, 2005, 2:45 AM by (staff)
Nokia today announced three new fashion phones with a softer look and more feminine details than the original 72XX fashion line. The 73XX L'Amour phones take a step forward on the design timeline from Art Deco to Art Nouveau, and step forward in technology as well. All three models are GSM / GPRS (EDGE) 900/1800/1900 and are due out Q1 2006.
- 7360: A slim, simple candybar style phone with VGA camera. Also features FM radio, Push To Talk and a new voice-activated interface option. The 7260 lacks the decorative flourishes of the other two models and will be available with faceplates that will appeal to both men and women.
- 7370: Nokia's first spinner style phone has floral etched trim and fabric faceplates. Features a 2" QVGA display and special swivel interface. Also features 1.3 megapixel camera with video capture and video ringtones, Bluetooth, FM radio and stereo speakers.
- 7380: The followup to the 7280 lipstick phone eliminates the slider design but maintains the mirror screen, which is now etched with a floral pattern. This handset still features the jog dial interface, but adds voice navigation like the 7360. The camera has also been upgraded to 2 Megapixels with a flash and video capture. Also features an mp3 player and streaming video viewer

So what phones do you guys use?
this phone looks like something out of the 70's
I think the lipstick model is completely useless, the retarted scroll keypad would take forever and a week to dial. with such a tiny screen isnt the 2mp. camera a little useless??
i think they are lovely and its about damb time nokia did something different. The 7370 looks great. but lets not leave the men out. why not redesign the 7370 for guys and add a few designs for them. anyway i think they are fabulous.
These are truly some ugly phones. Did anyone in Finland hear a loud thud when the first 72xx line was introduced? I can tell you, it was loud enough that I heard it all the way over here in the US. These phones are jus
Remember Nokia is a European company different culture different ideals.
Whisky Tango Foxtrot, over
And no GSM850. Set phasers on "ignore".
Those phones got shot out of the ugly cannon...
And no GSM850. Set phasers on "ignore".
Oh, now that's wit. Bravo!
Women would eat these up...
These would be popular with the ladies if they push them hard enough.
What tipped you off there, Sherlock? The floral patterns? LOL.
The color choices are horrible. "Coffee brown" and "Warm amber" are the choices. Sounds more like "hot turd" and "warm turd" to me, respectively.
