Released in 2006, the Nokia N93 was one of the first N-series devices announced by the Finnish phone giant. A flip phone, it contorted to different positions and twisted into almost any layout. One could flip it around to play games like a handheld game console in a 90-degree sideways angle, or flip it open and twist the screen to take the perfect image.
The camera, which was only 3.15-megapixels, was housed on the side of the device facing outward. However, despite its consumer appeal and ability to play games with its dedicated 3D graphics processor, it ran the Symbian Series 60 operating system allowing business users to email and send instant messages.
Nokia for a time developed swivel phones that would spin 180-degrees uncovering the keypad underneath. The Nokia 7370 had a flowery, contemporary design, specifically for those who were fashion conscious and wanted to make a statement with their handset choice.
Despite the odd visual aesthetic, the phone itself was relatively ordinary otherwise. The keypad was standard and the portrait 240 x 320 pixel screen resolution was fairly common for advanced consumer Series 40 devices at the time.
One of the slimmest-width phones Nokia had made, the Nokia 7210 was also one of the first devices with a color screen. Released in 2002, the daring design of the keypad brought in many customers who wanted to upgrade from the older handsets.
The phone itself wasn't too groundbreaking but featured a fully square 128 x 128 pixel resolution screen. One of the great benefits of the device was its weight; a considerably lighter 83g compared to the common 133g weight of the Nokia 3310 due to its thinner and more efficient battery.
