Nokia has revealed the X3 Touch & Type that offers a 2.4″ QVGA touch screen and a 12-button keypad. According to Nokia’s SVP of Design, the keypad is great for single handed texting while the touch screen offers the easiest control on the interface, giving users the best of both worlds.
This “Hybrid” input device has dimension of 106mm x 48mm x 9.6mm which makes it one of Nokia’s slimmest devices to date. It also just weights a tiny 78g. On the technical aspects, the device offers 3G/HSPA, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, FM Radio and a 5MP Camera which are pretty standard for today’s phone. However we find it odd that they left out
bluetooth and GPS which should come standard with in a phone like this.
The device runs on
Symbian Series 40 Touch & Type edition and for storage, it has a removable microSD slot that supports up to 16GB. The X3 Touch and Type comes in 5 vibrant colours – White Silver, Dark Metal, Petrol Blue, Pink and Lilac.
Design wise, the X3 Touch and Type is simple yet sleek with a brushed aluminium finish for the back. On the front, keypad however is slightly different with the typical last row keys such as hash, asterix and zero moved to the right most column.
