The Nokia 7900 Prism is yet another stylish and iconic phone from Nokia. Nokia is never afraid to take risks when it comes to mobile phone design and that's what separates Nokia from other cell phone manufacturers and that is what keeps Nokia on top.

Design

The Design of the Nokia 7900 Prism matches its name; it is full of criss-cross patterns especially the keypad, thus invoking the word Prism. The Nokia 7900 Prism is only 11.3mm thick, with a shiny surface that makes handling the phone almost slippery. The keypad of the Nokia 7900 Prism is what sets it apart from other mobile phone. While the keypad itself is not entirely new like what what Nokia did with the Nokia 3530 (which is a really lousy idea, Nokia), the criss-cross pattern makes texting a little uncomfortable. Though the keypad on the Nokia 7900 Prism is uncomfortable, the D-Pad makes up for it. Handling the D-Pad is comfortable and unlike previous Nokia phones where pressing the right directional button will take you up or down, with the Nokia 7900 prism, there's almost zero chances of that happening.

Features

What struck me about the Nokia 7900 Prism during my limited with it is that the phone seems to be made for handling in the dark. Everything about its features are optimized for low light conditions. First, the Nokia 7900 Prism's 2 inch OLED screen looks so gorgeous in the dark but when viewed in direct sunlight, the screen is almost unreadable. You can also configure the back light to ANY colors and I do mean ANY. This is the first time that I've seen a phone wherein you can choose your back light from 49 colors! The most I've seen is 3 colors. The Nokia 7900 Prism also sports a 2 mega pixel camera which is just mediocre, there's no autofocus and you're limited using just basic settings like white balance, sequence shots, etc. Another disappointment with regards to the camera functions is that the Nokia 7900 Prism doesn't have a dedicated camera button which makes taking pictures really awkward specially in landscape mode. Music-wise, the Nokia 7900 Prism has a nice music player and can play MP3, MIDI, AAC, AAC+, and WMA file formats. The 1GB internal memory is spacious enough to store several audio and music files, however you're limited to just that—1GB since the Nokia 7900 Prism doesn't have an expansion slot.

Conclusion

The Nokia 7900 Prism is more of a fashion phone because of its unique design and the amazing back light features, it can also double as an mp3 player for those who just want to listen to music to pass the time but this is not recommended for audiophiles because of the limited internal memory.

    Very cool looking phone. Nokia is not afraid to take chances with their designs.
