I must say this handset is so interesting though a little extraordinary. Nokia 7705 Twist has a very unusual square form factor that swivels. For the time being this phone is exclusive to the Verizon network in the US.
The Nokia Twist is a device with 3G capability that sports a 2.4-inch QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) display which is capable of rendering up to 262,000 different colors. It weighs about 98g and is 69mm square in size. Bluetooth support for headsets and stereo headphones is also supported.
Although this is a very different looking handset, Verizon says that the Twist should be available from September 13th onwards at just under USD100 after a USD50 rebate. The catch is you need to sign up a 2 year contract.
