Nokia continues driving innovation in its market leading mobile phone range with the latest Nokia X3 Touch and Type, featuring a unique combination of a touch screen and traditional 12 button phone keypad. As Nokia’s first ‘Touch and Type’ phone, the Nokia X3 allows people to tap quickly on the bright color touch screen, as well as enjoy the familiarity of the full keypad for quick fire text messages and phone calls. On sale now in Singapore, the Nokia X3 Touch and Type is available at a retail price of SGD 295, excluding taxes and subsidies.
“Innovation is not just a high-end game. The Nokia X3 is a great example of bringing new consumer value to lower price points,” said Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President of Mobile Phones at Nokia.
“Our research tells us consumers who have invested years in becoming fast one-handed, one-thumb texters want to maintain their speedy edge for SMS, chat and instant messaging - yet enjoy the benefits of touch as well,” continued McDowell.
With its sleek and modern design coming in at a very thin 9.6mm – making it one of the slimmest Nokia phones ever created – the Nokia X3 Touch and Type slips easily into the purse or the pocket, and looks the part with its brushed aluminum back cover which will come in five vibrant colors designed to suit any mood or fashionistas wardrobe.
Even though it has a svelte profile, the X3 Touch and Type is full of features to meet the most demanding consumer. It comes with four bands for voice, 3G, HSDPA and WiFi for data, a music player and an FM radio. Mobile photo enthusiasts get a 5-megapixel camera, with 4X digital zoom, for great image and video quality to play with. The Communities app will keep the most avid social networker connected with updates from Twitter and Facebook.
The X3 Touch and Type has also got dedicated music and messaging keys for quick access to the music player and email. All the regular webmail and chat services are catered for by the included applications. Apps downloaded from the Ovi Store can be used through the 2.4-inch resistive touch screen, so users don’t miss out on any of the latest games or productivity apps. They can also use the keys, of course, if they prefer, or adopt a hybrid approach.
The Nokia X3 Touch and Type is the successor to the Nokia X3-00, a slider with strong music functionality, which was launched in September 2009. The Nokia X3 Touch and Type (X3-02) is now commercially available in Singapore at a recommended retail price of SGD $295, excluding operator plan.
