Nokia C7 front and backYesterday morning WOMWorld Nokia hosted an interesting Q and A on line with Tim Allen, Nokia Product manager for the new C7 Symbian^3 device announced at the Nokia World 2010 event in London this week. A number of Nokia bloggers, including myself attended this event, here are some of the highlights of the session which lasted approximately 60 minutes.

(Q) Nuno Pereira: Hi Tim, (first of all, thank you for your presence in here), my first question would be about the design of the C7: Honestly, it looks a bit “Samsung-ish”. Was it a natural decision, or the decision was made after the success alike models from Samsung?

(A) Tim Allen – Nokia C7 Product Manager: @Nuno The design of Nokia C7 was based on huge amount of consumer research which we undertake constantly. Design languages emerge over time, and are not “reactive”. The same effect can be seen in the way in which car designs evolve. Consumers drive the design of our products.
