Nokia Supernova review

T he Nokia Supernova series, launched by Nokia in June 2008, adds a number of colorful mobile phones to the Finnish company’s assortment. The Supernova phones vary both in price and in specifications. Low-budget as well as mid-end mobile phones are available in this new series. ‘Supernova’ is an unexpected choice for the name of a mobile phone line. It makes the product more recognizable and certainly more personal than a name like 'E-series'. Supernova stems from astronomy and relates to an impressive explosion of a star during which a lot of light is freed. With the Supernova series, Nokia tries to attract the trend-sensitive consumer who wants to show his or her personality through his/her mobile phone. The phones have colorful designs and some of them even have a very bold design.

Nokia 7100 Supernova test

The Nokia 7100 Supernova handset is clearly a basic mobile phone; the package is also simple and compact. However; in general, the Supernova series packaging is more colorful than that of other basic Nokia mobile phones. In addition to the mobile phone and the manual, you will only find a battery charger and a headset in the package. Despite the affordable price and the simple features, I still find the Nokia Supernova's appearance very interesting.

Design and buttons on the Nokia mobile

The Nokia 7100 cell phone has only four buttons and a navigation button on the front. Furthermore, it has a button on one side to take pictures and that's it. Since there are so few buttons, the phone looks neat and simple. The front contains a red-purple stripe which is also visible on the back of the device. The 1.3 Megapixel digital camera and a speaker can be found on the back, nicely integrated in the back cover. The rest is completely shiny black. The Nokia 7100 Supernova phone is available in an array of colors, however availability differs per country.
