The Nokia N79 ships with three interchangeable (white, red, and brown) back plates called XpressOn smart covers so you can switch up the look. Even cooler, the phone's theme will change with the cover. For example, the background color will match whatever smart cover you choose.
The N79's QVGA display measures 2.4 inches diagonally and supports 16 million colors and a 320x240-pixel resolution. There's a built-in accelerometer, but it's not a touch screen so you'll have to use the controls below the display to navigate the phone.
Like some of the other N series devices, the Nokia N79 features a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with a dual LED flash, up to 20x digital zoom, and can capture video at up to 30 frames per second. We were impressed with the camera's quality as it took sharp and colorful photos.
Along the left spine, you'll find a microSD expansion slot and a micro USB port--which are both protected by an attached cover. The expansion slot can accept up to 8GB cards, while there's about 50MB of internal memory.
