I thought Nokia Build was a great idea when I first found out about it. Imagine, designing the exterior of a phone for yourself and afterwards being able to take it home with you. Genius! But then I realized it was only being offered in France, and so I was immediately put off.
Fast forward to now, lo and behold, users from the UK may now also avail of the said service. Nokia Build has also hit the UK, apparently, but it still remains limited to orders of the Nokia 7310 Supernova and nothing else. It’s a good-looking phone, but a bit more options wouldn’t have hurt.
Since Nokia Build for the UK was in English, I finally got the chance to try it out. Trying out designs turned out easier than I thought. One doesn’t even need to register in order to let his creativity lose. Nokia will only take a bit of your info if you decide to buy any of the designed phones on virtual display.
Like I said in the beginning, this is a great idea, letting users in on a small part of the designing process, but hopefully it expands to more markets and more models are added for selection in the future.
