Nokia X3 Touch & Type touches down




Nokia just outed a new iteration of their candy-bar X3 handset and it now comes with a touch screen on top of the alphanumeric keypad (a rare combination).

The original Nokia X3 was announced back in September 2009, along with the Nokia X6.

This newer Nokia X3 (X3-02) is dubbed the Touch & Type which combines the usual alpha-numeric keypad and a touchscreen display.

Nokia X3-02 Touch & Type
2.4″ display 240 x 320 pixels
3G/HSDPA
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1
up to 16GB via microSD
5MP camera
FM Radio

The display has a resistive touchscreen and I’m looking at the X3-02 as a younger sibling of the full-qwerty Nokia X5. Nokia puts the suggested price of the Nokia X3-02 at 125 euros (roughly Php7,300) before taxes and/or subsidies.

    The small screen makes the touch screen pretty much useless.

    Nokia should have made it as an Android unit. It’s ugly, more like a China Phone to me. >=)

    is it already out? here in the philippines?

  16. clyde says:

    this is definitely inspired by chinese nokia phones e.g. 3208c with touch and keypad combo… the only irk i can find in this phone is the china-phone-ish keypad layout… it cheapens the over-all look of the phone… this is the first time nokia used this kind of layout…

  17. Siyel says:

    the problem is, its not waterproof! its also not shockproof..

    I bought this phone for my husband and he absolutly loves it. He is a type of person who doesn’t like new touch screen phones. So to make this transition smoother for him I got him this phone that combines best of both worlds and he just loves it. It gives him ability to still use keypad if he’d like as well as slowly get use to touching technics. In addition, this phone is very “good” looking: small and modern looking, which is a big plus. Also, pics are great, talk hours are great(even though it is half touch phone, easily go for three days without charging). In general, great phone for people who still would like to use keypad.
