Back then, every teenager wanted to own a N70 because for three reasons. First Nokia N70 is one of the first Nokia N series line up of smartphones, with dual camera, and contains 30 MB of internal storage memory. Back in 2005 30 MB was considered quite a lot for a mobile phone.

This phone was basically the refreshed version of Nokia 6230, with 1.3 MP camera and a high resolution display measuring 208 X 208 and 32 MB of free storage. However, these upgrades caused the operating system to run slower.
