Nokia X3 T and T gives cheap, thin touch phone

Nokia this morning launched a unique entry level touchscreen phone. The X3 Touch and Type (X3-02) is a major revamp of the original X3 that moves to a candybar design with both a number pad and a touchscreen. It's conceived as ideal for simple uses by keeping an obvious touch interface for browsing, media and simply navigating the OS but a hardware shortcut for dialing and text.

The design is thin at 0.38 inches and relatively upscale with an aluminum body. As a phone, the Symbian S40 device is relatively high end with a five-megapixel camera and 802.11n Wi-Fi. Nokia gives it full 10.2Mbps HSPA with quad-band support that will handle North American airwaves as well as Europe and abroad.

Price is a core aspect of the phone, which will ship before the end of the summer in certain areas for the equivalent of just $161 before carrier discounts. The X3 Touch and Type is Nokia's first device to use the rebranded Comes With Music, now Ovi Music Unlimited, and will have a special version that costs extra in return for a year's subscription of music to keep.
