A French technology blog, Test Mobile, has got some images of Nokia's upcoming Touch & Type phone with a slider keypad. The name of this new mobile has not yet confirmed, but may boast the X-series name. The leaked images suggest that the new mobile has a big touchscreen with a traditional keypad.
It seems like the new upcoming Nokia Touch & Type mobile would be running on Series 40 operating system and will have an affordable price. The new images were leaked just days after another leak of another upcoming mobile Nokia E6-00. The rumored Nokia E6-00 will be a business class phone with QWERTY keypad and features like PushMail, Wi-Fi etc.
Earlier on Mar 8, Nokia announced another low-cost music phone called Nokia X1-00. This new phone has a 1.8-inch colour TFT display screen and a high volume speaker on the back that is powerful enough to offer 106phon sound.
Nokia plans to widen its popularity with low-cost and affordable mobiles before the launch of Windows Phone 7 powered smartphones. The Nokia WP7 mobiles will be launched by early 2012, aiming to compete with upcoming Android smartphones and the much rumored iPhone 5. So, the big party has not yet started. Stay tuned for more updates.
