Nokia has unveiled the slim Nokia X3 Touch and Type, designed 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 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 retail for approximately EUR 125, excluding taxes and subsidies.

“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,” said Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President of Mobile Phones at Nokia.

The X3 comes in at a very thin 9.6mm – making it one of the slimmest Nokia phones ever. Some of the X3’s features include:

  • 3G
  • WLAN,
  • Music player and an FM radio.
  • 5 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom that can take both still and video images
  • Dedicated music and messaging keys allowing fast access to important Ovi services
  • Ovi Mail
  • Email and chat accounts can be pushed direct to the phone via Nokia Messaging.

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.
