Nokia Touch Phone rumors are true
Others are calling it the Nokia Tube, though that’s not really the real name of this new Nokia Touch UI phone coming out first quarter of 2009. I thought I saw that phone in Singapore during the Ovi launching last year.
The form factor is similar to the Nokia N73 but a little wider with the following specs:
Global Positioning System (GPS)
2 to 3 megapixel camera
3 to 3.5 inches widescreen with 16:9 aspect ratio
5th Gen Touch S60
I’m trying not to compare this to the iPhone because the latter is incomparable. Whatever Nokia lacks in touch usability and OS for this phone model, it tried to compensate for features. And for me, the GPS, Wifi and HSDPA on a Nokia phone trumps an EDGE/WiFi iPhone any day.
