Stylish 5MP Prism-like Nokia slider cancelled, yet previewed

It seems Sony Ericsson and Motorola aren’t the only ones having problems with their upcoming products, and cancelling models right before they start to ship. While Motorola has canned the Motorola RAZR3, and Sony Ericsson has cancelled Paris and BeiBei, Nokia has also axed an unannounced model that could’ve been a good one for their fashion line.

Nokia’s unnamed and unannounced handset, pictured here, is dressed in a violet hue and looks like it was carved out of a single piece of crystal. It looks an awful lot like those handsets from Nokia’s Prism line, and features a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. Just the thing for the fashion-conscious, we know. This is surely something that can get a Nokia fan’s panties up in a bunch, but there’s a problem: it’s been cancelled.

Why Nokia cancelled such an awesome looking and feature-filled product that’s colored royal violet, I’m not exactly sure. I think part of it has to do with how it practically mimics a lot of the same features found on Nokia’s other currently available phones, such as the recently announced Nokia 6260 Slide. Also, “the demand for it considered low,” according to an editorial with a quick preview of the handset from Mobile-Review. (I’m not sure what standards they used to measure the demand for this, though.)

Maybe we’ll learn more about this product in the future, maybe not. In my opinion this would have been a great addition to Nokia’s Prism line of phones. Feast your eyes on more photos of this sexy-looking Nokia phone that’s not going to be made available for sale below.
