Nokia's 'Prism' gets new angle: a clamshell

The odd-looking handset gets even odder.


It's been several months since we first saw Nokia's geometrically influenced " Prism " mobile phones, and we're still not sure how we feel about those odd triangular and diamond-shaped buttons. And just to make matters more confounding, the handset maker has come out with a clamshell model that looks even weirder.

The "7070 Prism" is a more affordable version of its high-end siblings , which even acquired some French artistry earlier this year. MobileWhack says the $80 clamshell isn't all that different either--other than the folding form, of course--including such features as a built-in speaker, voice recorder, and support for MP3 ringtones.

Pricing aside, the next iteration seems obvious: An entire handset shaped like a triangle.
