Evaluation

The basic design is the same as the N310 launched two years ago, but with many improvements. For example, the overall shape of the N310 was like a slim rectangular box with curved corners, but seen from the side the present product appears elliptical, with a really elegant transition between planar and radial surfaces. Coupled with the high-gloss finish, this feature creates an even thinner-looking product. Another improvement is that the layout of the interior components has been changed, resulting in a less noisy device that is a pleasure to use and has lasting appeal. The judges were deeply impressed by a design culture that can take a highly original product and use it as the basis for further improvements.
