About Nokia N79

Released at the same time as the N85, the Nokia N79 is a solid handset with a pleasing set of features and a great modern look.

The Nokia N79 looks similar to some of the other candy bar handsets being produced by the Finnish telecommunication giant; there is the familiar navigation pad and key set up, the large, almost boxy structure and the well sized numerical keypad.

What is new is the XpressOn cover feature. The N79 allows you to enjoy the familiarity of a Nokia handset while at the same time making your phone your own by having replaceable backplates. You can pick and choose between a range of different colours, and when you find a colour you like and pop it on the back, the screen of the N79 will automatically change colour to match!
