Launched by Nokia in fall 2004, the physical device itself was not dashing or game changing, but the design of the keypad was swish and elegant. The Nokia 7260 was a candy-bar phone with curved upper-left and lower-right corners that felt comfortable to hold in one's right hand, but the phone's designers forgot that 15 percent of the global left-handed population found the device difficult to hold and 'sharp' to feel.
But the main buying factor for the phone was its beautiful design. The phone itself was not particularly strong or stable, but the spiraling keypad remains simple and sleek, but beautiful by its sheer simplicity.
