Nokia introduced its 5070 in two colors each .

And the same for it’s 5700.

Wow. Colors.

See, the phones are still fat, still boring, and still ugly. But they have colors.

This is what they call design innovation?

No wonder Nokia is building a reputation as an “old man’s handset.”

Let’s face it: Nokia phones are only for people who couldn’t give a damn what their phones look like. And it appears the numbers of those people are falling worldwide.
