Customers can choose from four different Xpress-On covers and the 7610 also features a Theme Colorizer which captures any colour and applies to the phone key illumination and wallpaper.

The Nokia 7510 Supernova is a clamshell design that features very similar specifications to the 7610. The differences include a 2MP camera with single LED flash, a 2.2 inch QVGA display and A-GPS. It comes with both front and back Xpress-On covers available in ‘storm blue’, ‘red’, ’emerald green’ and ‘espresso brown’, and magical light effects with a hidden-until-lit display.

The Nokia 7210 Supernova is another candybar phone. It features similar specs to the 7310 (no TV-out port though) but comes in either glossy finish ‘bubble gum pink’ or ‘vivid blue’. It will not work with Xpress-On covers.
