Nokia X3 Touch and Type Uses Touchscreen and Number Pad
Nokia today announced the Nokia X3 Touch and Type phone, a device that combines a 12-key number pad on the bottom with a 2.4-inch resistive touchscreen up top. The phone is one of Nokia's thinnest devices at 9.6mm deep. The X3 supports HSPA and Wi-Fi networking, but it will run a more basic, S40 interface, as opposed to Nokia's Symbian smartphone platform. The X3 Touch and Type gets a 5 megapixel camera and a microSD card slot for cards up to 16GB. The Nokia X3 will initially be available in select European, Middle Eastern and Asian markets, as well as Mexico, with more markets to follow.
