The 7280 "lipstick" phone is a mobile telephone model supplied by Nokia. It supports GSM, SMS, MMS, HSCSD, GPRS, and SyncML. It has a VGA camera. Its design features a slider end and a Navi-Spinner in the place of a keypad. As part of Nokia's "Fashion Phone" line, it has black, white and red styling, and a screen that fades to a mirror when inactive. Fortune Magazine listed it as one of the best products of 2004[1] while its design was praised by the jury in the iF product design awards for 2005.[2]. The battery could only be replaced by an authorised service center.[3]

Adverts for the Nokia Fashion Collection were directed by photographer David LaChapelle. There are a total of 3 versions of the commercial, each featuring one of the 3 phones including the Nokia 7280.

The phone is shown in the Pussycat Dolls' "Beep" music video.
