Nokia Launches First UIQ Handset

Nokia today launched their first handset based on UIQ - the only Symbian interface the company did not develop. The 6708 is a triband GSM/GPRS handset with a 208 x 320 screen and 1.3 MP camera. Nokia did not develop the phone either, it is actually rebranded BenQ P31 with additional Chinese language support and software tweaks. Many Asian markets are demanding handsets with handwriting input, since that is much faster and more natural than an QWERTY keyboard or numeric keypad, however Nokia did not have any models or OSes with Chinese handwriting recognition. This is not the first time Nokia has rebranded a handset to quickly meet a particular market's needs.
