In the past we have seen announcements in advance of Nokia World so that Nokia could then announce other new and exciting products at NW. Today we see the announcement of the Nokia X3 Touch and Type device (X3-02). This device has something of a rare form factor with a standard 12 button phone keypad and a 2.4 inch resistive touchscreen display. It is a low cost phone, MSRP of EUR 125, that is designed to give those who love using phone keypads the chance to also experience the touch user interface.

There are millions of people who have become quite proficient at one handed, no looking, SMS with a standard phone keypad and this device lets them continue this behavior. The X3 is only 9.6mm (0.38 inches) thick and still packs in 3G, WiFi, FM radio, microSD card slot and 5 megapixel camera. It is powered by S40.

The other X3 device announced at Nokia World 2009 is labeled the X3-00 and has a slide down keypad without a touchscreen display.

Funny thing is that i consider this probally best phone to come from Nokia this year. N9 will hopefully change that.
At least Nokia starts to have ok looking portfolio again with X3-02, E5, C6 and N8.

I agree with you Kips, best Nokia phone this year, hands down. Simplicity yet sexy. I’m actually thinking of getting this device.

I will get this device. It just lacks a flash, but other than that, it seems great.

Although Nokia has experiencing a major downfall because of android im sure they are doing their best now in order to get back

Still Nokia is not showing interest on using Android on their products. But as I observed, they’re still making better and better phones. And now that the Symbian Belle is on its way, as well as the Nokia Windows Phone Mango, Nokia will still be on top I think.
