Nokia Tube to challenge iPhone 3G

nokia tubeAfter the recent introduction of the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream) phone, a lot of talk has started about the competition against the iPhone. New Gadgets Guru had run a post a few weeks ago about the Nokia Tube which is to be Nokia's answer to the iPhone mania. Sources have now revealed that the Nokia Tube will be launched on Oct 2nd. You could read more about the Nokia Tube below.

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 on Oct 2nd 2008. 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.

I agree with bm - Nokia are usually so easy to use this is potentially great news. Let's hope the software lives up to our expectations - unlike some fo the features on the N95 when it first launched...

I figured Nokia could challenge iPhone any time they wanted. I wonder what took them so long.

Thanks BM, yes I was pleasantly surprised to get a PR2 by Google.

Hi Jack, I definitely agree with you. Nokia should have entered this market as cellphones are their core business. They would definitely have given Apple a run for its money!

BM said...

I think you got your PR from the contest you started. Bcoz as I read, Google weights one-way links more.
