The "avant-garde" handset features a two-megapixel camera; DVD quality video playback; support for a range of music formats, including MP3 and WMA; an on-board FM radio; and includes a 30MB internal storage capacity, with a Micro SD memory card slot - Nokia's bundling a 512MB card with the phone.

On the connectivity side, the 7500 includes Bluetooth 2.0 and supports USB 2.0. It is also compatible with Edge and GPRS, and it's a tri-band GSM device. The display is 240 x 320 pixels and capable of displaying 16.7m colours.

The specs may not be startling, but the 7500's looks are, and that keypad, with its diamond-shaped keys, will certainly draw attention. The basic colour is black, with a choice of blue, green or ruby highlights.

It will certainly appeal to the fashionista crowd with its size and weight: it measures 10.9 x 4.4 x 1.4cm and weighs 82g.

The handset is expected to be made available first during Q3 in China, but pricing has yet to be set. Sadly, there's no wo word on a European release date.
