At Last, Deco Phones For Decophiles

Inspired by the glamour and elegance of the lavish 1920s, mobile communications giant Nokia has introduced three Art Deco-inspired mobile phones.The line includes the Nokia Nokia 7280 Art Deco cell phone7280, left, 7270, center, and 7260, bottom. They blend Art Deco styling with an edgy, modern-day twist.  Styling influences such as flow and movement, color, geometry, detailing and graphics were the inspiration and creative energy behind the cell phone trio.The sleek Nokia 7280 offers a completely new mobile phone design, foregoing the traditional keypad for a discreet keyless dial. A fine lacquer-inspired high-gloss finish, complemented by leather and mirror accents, add sophistication and style, making this device as much a work of art as an advanced piece of technology.

Perfect to whip out at cocktails, Nokia suggests, the 7280 is geared to attract attention and become the talking point at any high glamour soiree. Its VGA camera can snap the latest and greatest while the active slide means calls can be answered or ended with a flick of a wrist. The handset's chic strap and carrying pouch keep this hot accessory close at all times. Using the Nokia  Collector, you can transfer photos, ring tones, wallpapers, music and videos from the Nokia 7280 to and from a Macintosh computer. For a fashionable hands-free experience, style mavens can plug in a wireless headset. This phone appears to be the fantasy phone for fashion-conscious decophiles.

The boldly stylish 7270 draws its design inspiration from the Garbo-esque glamour of the 1920s. Encased in anNokia 7270 Art Deco cell phone etched stainless steel housing, this fold design accents your wardrobe with a matching textile wrap, carrying strap and pouch to reflect your personal style and mood.
Whether shopping in New York, Paris or Shanghai, a second opinion is merely clicks away, thanks to the 7270's VGA camera. Converting clothes or shoe sizes is a snap with the clever Converter application. Tune out in style with the FM radio and fashion headset or tap away on games like Chic Pinball.

Nokia 7260 Art Deco cell phoneMaterials, graphics and color palette set the 7260 apart. Featuring chrome and steel accents, this Art-Deco-meets-industrial-design concept stands out in a crowd. 

Consumers can enhance the style of their 7260 with daring accessories, like stylish straps and carrying pouches. Jetsetters can easily call home with the 7260's tri-band capabilities, or send celebrity sightings using the VGA camera.
The 7260, like its Deco-inspired cousins, allow users to step out in style every day.
