Nokia 7280 review


As part of the Nokia fashion collection, which includes 7260, 7270 and 7280, the Nokia 7280 “the lipstick” phone puts style first.  I was excited to start using this device and after a few weeks I was use to its unique characteristics.  The one aspect I could not get past was the lack of a number pad as dialing via the scroll wheel was difficult and inconvenient.  The phone redeems itself with voice dialing, Bluetooth capabilities and speakerphone. 

I developed a real love hate relationship with this phone, love the style, size and weight; hate the lack of practicality. 

The phone comes equipped with the following:

  • Subtle and sleek scroll wheel to access features in a unique way
  • Voice-activated user interface with 70 voice commands
  • Hidden integrated VGA camera
  • Internal handsfree speaker
  • MMS
  • HSCSD and EGPRS for high-speed data connectivity
  • EDGE : Mobile broadband access with upload up to 118.4 kbps and download up to 236.8 kbps
    GPRS for convenient 'always on' browsing
  • Bluetooth wireless technology
  • Infrared
  • XHTML browser
