Another daring design for Nokia, this fashionista's phone was one of the first devices on the market that had no dialing pad. It didn't even have a touch-screen display, so how would it work? Through sheer hard work, most users found.
On the market in 2004, the thin-film transistor (TFT) screen with 65,000 colors may have had a thin and bright, colorful display, a slim and sleek design, and a VGA camera -- which was rare for the time -- it had to be operated by an iPod-like wheel. But it wasn't touch-sensitive; one physically had to spin the navigation dial which resulted in sore thumbs. Just imagine sending a text message by having to scroll through each and every letter; it's hard work and the phone barely took off.
