Nokia X3 Touch & Type Unveiled | Touch Debuted On S40
Nokia today unveiled the super slim Nokia X3 (X3-02) Touch and Type, with a unique combination of a touch screen and traditional 12 button phone keypad. As Nokia’s first ‘Touch and Type’ phone, the Nokia X3 allows people to tap quickly on the touch screen, as well as enjoy the familiarity of the full keypad for quick fire text messaging and phone calls. In selected markets, the X3 Touch and Type will also be offered with Ovi Music Unlimited, allowing access to a library of over 11 million tracks.
Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President of Mobile Phones at Nokia said that the Nokia X3 Touch & Type was designed as a touch and type device because “typing is ideal for SMS and social networking where fast and frequent input is needed, while touch is ideal for functions such as setting alarms, smooth browsing and controlling applications like music and games. Our research tells us consumers who have invested years in becoming fast one-handed, one-thumb texters want to maintain their speedy edge for SMS, chat and instant messaging – yet enjoy the benefits of touch as well.”
Some other features of the Nokia X3 Touch & Type include a 5 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom, dedicated music and messaging keys, battery life of 17 days on standby, all in at a very thin 9.6mm.
The X3 Touch and Type is expected to be on sale this quarter and will retail for approximately €125 EUR, excluding taxes and subsidies. It will be available in several colors and initially be offered in China, UK & Ireland, Russia, Australia & New Zealand, Singapore, Germany, Spain & Portugal, France, Mexico and Saudi & Yemen. Other markets will follow later.
