Yes, there has been a lot of speculation about the Nokia Tube. This mobile phone offers a touch interface similar to the iPhone and is supposed to be launched sometime in Q1 2009. It runs on the latest Nokia 5th generation S60 full Touch UI and will be the first phone of a brand new handset lineup. A stylus option is also provided as it offers handwriting recognition.

The communication department of Nokia Tube is at its peak, sporting quad-band GPRS/ EDGE/UMTS and HSDPA with uPnP support, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP and AVRCP support. The built-in GPS with A-GPS and geotagging support completes the wireless communication set of the hi-end Nokia Tube device.
