Verizon Nokia Twist
From time to time, I get to test out a new phone from Verizon. I'm not paid for this- I just get the pleasure of playing with all of the functions of the phone at no cost to me. Then I write about my thoughts here on my blog and in other online venues. Recently, I got to play with the Nokia Twist. The phone did most things any regular cell phone would do. It placed calls and took calls, was easy to use for texting (has a qwerty keyboard). It's a unique little shape- square and it twists open to reveal the keyboard. There are fun colors and lights. You can assign fun little avatars to your contacts. The back of the phone is a mirror. If you click the link I gave above, there is a video of an ad for the phone off on the right side of that site. Watch it and you will see a perfect representation of what I felt the key market for this phone would be! It's a fun and quirky little phone. It's very entertaining and... cute. It functioned well and did anything I needed it to do. I didn't fall in love with it- mostly because of all those things that make it so fun and entertaining. Personally, I found them kind of annoying but kept thinking that teenagers and young adults would LOVE the phone. Could be a great gift idea for a young person in your Verizon life!
