Like Sony Ericsson’s Paris P5, bloggers managed to get their hands on a recently-cancelled Nokia handset and give it a quick once over. Unlike the Paris however, this is likely one that won’t be missed by many. Mobile-Review dropped a handful of images in a recent post of a peculiar purple handset that looks like it took several design cues from both Nokia’s Vertu and Prism lines. The result, a less than stunning angular device that Nokia may have been wise to move to the chopping block prior to production. While many mobile users enjoy a device that separates them from the pack a bit, Nokia’s Prisim handset has not been overly successful as many simply can’t stomach the look of it. This mystery device, as you can see above, likely would have suffered a similar fate. Very little is known about the handset but we can assume its functionality would have been on par with many of Nokia’s more capable devices thanks to the presence of a 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss shooter which can be seen on the back. We can also assume it would have fallen into Nokia’s numbered device range as it lacks any semblance of an Nseries. The rest may remain a mystery forever but Nokia has plenty in store for us in the coming year so we won’t exactly be shedding any tears. What do you guys think – would this purple people eater have been on your handset purchase list?
