Released in 2007, the 'XpressMusic' branded phone came with in-built music and video playback, despite the small screen, but housed a powerful loudspeaker. It was also one of the first Nokia phones that came with a joystick-like menu control -- a 'feature' that wore out after only a few months of using it.
But for no apparent reason, it seems, this candy-bar design phone had a spinning lower half. The camera was embedded in the bottom-right hand side of the phone facing to the right. Holding the device in your right hand and you would forever be taking photos of your wrist. But holding the phone horizontally and spinning the lower half of the phone would 'enable' the point-and-shoot mode. It would've simply made more sense to include a camera at the back of the device, but the back-facing camera technology was still a work in progress -- so we can't criticize Nokia for that.
