Initial designs / prototypes / boxes for Nokia X5, E7, X3 etc?

Some interesting packaging for the Nokia X5 and Nokia E7. For some reason these pictures look familiar but I’m not sure why.

Anywhoo, looking at the X5 and E7, you’ll note that they’re quite different to what was actually given that designation. These aren’t some clones or mishaps. They’re official from Nokia.

E7-00 was of course the slider QWERTY, not the E72-esque monoblock. The Nokia X5 had two public designs, a square QWERTY slider and a monoblock.


There’s more. Check out the X3 and C1

Thank Reena Naik-Smith for the tip!

      Looks like the E72 to me, not E6

    I thought that all Nokia phones cane i boxes, but there is a folded cardboard box for 1280. Still classier than plastic.

    E7-00 prototype seems to have been an upgraded E72…Perhaps with the E5-00 internal hardware specs? Interestingly the X5-00 prototype seems to have been a Series 40 phone with a design fairly similar to the actual historical X3-00. The historical X5 series phones were both S60 v3.2 devices.
