It’s existance has been rumoured since April. It had been cloned before being officially announced.

Yesterday we saw some actual photos .

Today, Nokia has officially announced their latest messaging centric device.

The Nokia 7705 Twist

Nokia 7705 twist 2

It’s mid tier, and normally doesn’t get my attention – but has got a quirky design and this new “light ring” feature. Supposedly that circle at the bottom right lights up so that it

“can be customized to identify a message or a call from those listed in the contact directory.”

The design is unconventional like the Nokia Surge, but it actually looks kinda nice, albeit having something rather feminine about it. (It’s petiteness, the swivelling, and that mirror….and the purple back – though I think it comes in black too.)


  • 3MP autofocus camera with flash and dedicated camera button [Is the flash AROUND the camera? If so that’s pretty cool, although may be detrimental to low light photos]
  • 2.4″ QVGA
  • Full QWERTY Keyboard
  • 2.71″ x 2.71″ x 0.59″ (68.8 mm x 68.8 mm x 14.9mm)
  • 3.44 ounces or 97.5 grams.
  • Built in Mirror << definitely for the ladies.
  • 2.5mm jack
  • 3G
  • S40?
  • Short cut buttons for messaging, camera, web, voice cammans, speaker phone options and  V CAST Music with Rhapsody®

It’ll be coming to Verizon from September 13 for  99.99 USD with a new 2 year contract. Note this 99.99USD is after a mail-in rebate.

Also worth mentioning is the Nokia 7705 Twist’s charity connections.

From Oct. 6 through Oct. 29, while supplies last, customers who purchase the Nokia Twist online at will receive a free picture frame phone lanyard to raise awareness of HopeLine® and support domestic violence prevention.
