Nokia 7900 Prism
Mar 18, 2008 | Tag: Mobile reviews
There are three phones in the Prism collection, they are the newest model for the mass sales Nokia 7500 Prism, and also two older devices – Nokia 7900 Prism and its version Crystal Prism. These models aim at the weaker part of the population. If the black variant of Nokia 7900 Prism can be called unisex in some way and some men even buy it, Crystal Prism uses pink.
The main differences between the older and the newer models are the phone body materials, dimensions, and Nokia 6500 Classic can be positioned somewhere in between them. Actually this model can be called the prototype of Nokia 7900 Prism and the differences are not that great. But the classical version is more widely used while Prism is the phone for women.
