Photos: The Nokia Swivel QWERTY phone – The E81? (clone) Nokia 7705 Twist

| August 16, 2009 | Reply

ESWIVBack in April, there were some rumours on an upcoming E-series swivel phone with QWERTY. The image on the left was a of a mock-up based on BGR sources’ first hand impression.

Hideous was the first word to pop into my mind. Next were horrendous monstrosity. But then again, it is just a mock-up. The actual leaked photos of the Nokia N900/Rover/RX-51 looked completely different and utterly beautiful compared to Mobile Crunch’s render (when closed anyway). Was there hope for the same in this swivel QWERTY?

All we could do was wait for Nokia to announce it or leak some pics.

Well, Chinese knock-offs have got there first. We shouldn’t be surprised in clones appearing before the original even had confirmation of existing – the same people that brought us the NokLa E97 (simply based on a concept design by Fabien Nauroy) has produced the NokLa E81.

Admittedly, this 90 degree QWERTY swivel phone doesn’t look half bad. It’s petite and quite feminine looking, especially with that mirror thing going on. Plus the owner could probably wear it as a necklace (just put a chain through the swivel hole), not to mention that there’s something girly about being a swivel form factor (ha, or maybe it’s just because the last swivel was the effeminate 7373?)
