For the sketch 1 is a blend of Nokia N8 in the physical design of the phone. Making the front akin to N8 but the size was the greatest attractions.
The next sketch is the X6 in refreshed. With the speakers and front showing the Xpressmusic designs. But again the phone is sexier in style with enhanced features outside like the camera at the back.
And last is the C and E blend. This sketch resembles the likeness from the new line up of Nokia. If you notice the front can be mistakenly identified as the iPhone but overall the new design gives it more crunch in its design.
Nokia Design by Community was a successful start and now the end is near. After we vote for the final design, I’m sure Nokia will finally announced it together with its name as Nokia U that we voted. So we should always that after this, Nokia would finally make it into real one just like on the Nokia Kinetic.
