The Nokia Twist was announced in September

Those recycling mobile phones for a messaging-focused model may be interested in the latest review from Mobile Burn.

In a piece this week for the site by Ricky Cadden, it is advised that the Nokia 7705 Twist is a model that not only provides an "adventurous form factor", but also offers great facilities for those who like to text and email.

The unit is equipped with a full qwerty keyboard that is described as "really well done" and swivels out from underneath the gadget's "nicely sized" 2.4-inch screen.

Mr Cadden continued: "This screen is incredibly bright and beautiful - almost leading you to believe it is OLED, when in fact it is only a normal LCD."

In addition, the 7705 Twist boasts microSD card support, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a three-megapixel camera, integrated media player and A-GPS navigational facilities.

The writer concluded by giving the model a "highly recommended rating".

Envirofone.com spokeswoman Julie Snape has also commented that the Twist highlights the importance of recycling in a rapidly diversifying mobile phone market.

"Handsets are becoming increasingly innovative, giving mobile users more and more choice when updating their phones", she explained.

"But this leaves behind hundreds of thousands of unwanted handsets that pose a huge threat to the environment if not disposed of safely."

Nokia unveiled the 7705 Twist in September this year.
