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!

Okay, I'm a loyal Verizon fan dying to know how you get to test out new phones!

I've seen the Twist on TV and my thoughts were just what you said. It looks cute, but probably a bit young for me.

Before I got my iphone the only phones I would get are Nokia. I loved them all except for the last one which had too many flaws. What I like about Nokia is that they tend to be more environmentally friendly in their production of phones, which most people don't even know. We're making a lot of cellphone trash and it's important to be aware of the impact.

Something I've seen on LG packaging- a statement about packaging smaller to lessen the environmental imapct. Boxes are smaller now. Which I think is good- plus it is a cost savings for the company which can help to balance out some of the increased costs all businesses are incurring these days.
