Nokia Unveils Touch and Type Design Nokia X3

Nokia has unveiled the new super slim Nokia X3 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 bright color touch screen, as well as enjoy the familiarity of the full keypad for quick fire text messages and phone calls. Expected to be on sale in the third quarter, the Nokia X3 is expected to sell for approximately EUR 125, excluding taxes and grant.

“Innovation is not just a high-end game. The Nokia X3 is a great example of bringing new consumer value to lower price points,” said Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President of Mobile Phones at Nokia.

“With the Nokia X3 we are giving consumers the best of both worlds by combining a touch screen and a keypad in an affordable device. We have given people a larger screen with clear icons and menus plus kept critical keys such as the send and end keys. We’ve also added dedicated function keys for important links like music and text messaging,” she said.

“We have designed the Nokia X3 to be 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. “continued McDowell.

With its sleek and modern design coming in at a very thin 9.6mm making it one of the slimmest Nokia phones ever the Nokia X3 slips easily into the purse or the pocket, and looks the part with its brushed aluminum back cover which will come in five vibrant colors designed to suit any mood or wardrobe.

Despite its size, the Nokia X3 is jam-packed with features including 3G, WLAN, a music player and an FM radio. Lovers of the snapshot and social networks will enjoy a great 5 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom that can take both still and video images. The Nokia X3 also features dedicated music and messaging keys allowing fast access to important Ovi services including social and entertainment applications. In addition to Ovi Mail, people’s favorite consumer email and chat accounts can be pushed direct to the phone via Nokia Messaging.

With a gentle slide over the touch screen people can go online and get access to many services including thousands of apps from Ovi Store. In certain markets, the new phone will also be available with Ovi Music Unlimited, enabling the owner to access a virtually limitless range of the latest hit music that can be stored on the available 16GB memory card.

    @Fayaz. . . 02 show variant made for specific regions with certain hardware excluded/included. For example chinese variant of nokia n82 doesn’t have wifi and some other features as their law doesn’t allow these.

    • As of I know the old X3 din’t have wifi and had 3.2 mp camera and this model has wifi with 5mp camera. so there should be name change of the model ??

  • fakhre alam

    So 01 02 03 is nothing to do with model

    • No they are different models. As I already mentioned.

  • Dua

    Is this mobile available in karachi mobile market?

  • Yasmeen

    Nokia X3 is a sliding phone with 3.2mp camera and no wifi, it comes in two different colours, black with red, and white with blue, whereas the thread is about Nokia X3-02 touch and type, so they’re two different models. Am waiting for X3-02 to be launched in Pakistan.

  • Yasmeen

    Nokia X3-02 touch & type is available for Rs.17,500 (quite pricey isn’t it)? :(
