Nokia to launch Tube soon
Nokia is allegedly preparing to globally launch Nokia Tube on October 2nd, said to be announced at an event in London, an insider tells Pocket-lint. The insider reveals that an impending announcement is due to occur simultaneously with Comes with Music, under the XpressMusic sub-brand. The potential launch date lines up with an earlier promise from Nokia that would have them offer touchscreen phones by the end of the year.
In July, Nokia hinted at a mid-range touchscreen device that would be competitively featured and positioned, citing a low price point that would make the device more attractive to users.
