The Nokia 7210 Supernova
Nokia’s Supernova series continues to grow each year with various handsets usually targeting people looking for a stylish mid-budget mobile phone. The series already features five models, but other Supernovas are in the making, which will probably be seen on the market this year. While not the latest launched, Nokia 7210 can be considered one of the highlights of the series because of its design and price. If you’re not used to see slim Nokia handsets, then you’ll be surprised to check out Nokia 7210 Supernova.
Announced in June 2008, Nokia 7310 Supernova was made available on the market in September the same year. The handset can be acquired for no more than US$150, without any plan. Prices may vary by location and carrier, so chances are high that you’ll be able to get it for under US$150.
The phone is available in a wide range of colors: Bubble Gum Pink, Vivid Blue, Graphite, Passionate Purple.

Nokia 7210 : Menu and Software Features
Nokia 7310 Supernova classic runs on a S40 5th Edition interface with Feature Pack 1, Which is the latest user-interface coming from Nokia. If you have owned a Nokia handset before and it didn’t have a Symbian OS, then this candy-bar will probably feel the same. One of the most user-friendly interfaces on the market, the S40 seems unchanged on the Surface, and offers the Nokia 7310 Supernova user an excellent experience. The phone’s Firmware include Flash 3.0, animated menus, submenus and icons.
Nokia 7210: The Good
The form factor and the design are definitely the strong points of the device. I could also enlist here the low price for such a good looking and slim phone. The fact that it supports 8GB microSD cards are a nice addition. The rest of its features are average to low, so I cannot add anything else.
Nokia 7210: The Bad
The main drawbacks of the phone are the keypad and camera module. Both perform badly, to the point of driving the user mad. The screen and the battery can also be listed as negative points.
