Nokia X 3-02, Adding Touch Screen to a Conventional Phone

We discovered it a few days ago, it appeared almost by surprise and initially oriented to market Chinese, so we didn’t think that it would soon reach Spain. Account with a particularity that draws attention to the rest of its features: touch screen in a seemingly traditional terminal. We speak of the Nokia X 3-02.

As you can see in the images, we have a phone with keyboard and a slim design of only 9.6 mm, but the oddest thing is find us with this touch screen of 2.4 inches (QVGA). This dual system of control and entering data into an affordable phone has been named by Nokia as “Touch & Type”.

Many will like you to know that materials have been used as the aluminium polished for the back cover the device, which will be available in three colours: white/silver, dark Metal, and dark blue. At the end of the year will be two new colors.

Speaking of dates, we inform you that the Nokia X 3-02 will be shown on our market in third quarter of the year. It costs, before taxes and subsidies, of 125 euros, and we are sure that it will become a regular between the catalogues of the operators.

Phone either renounce the broadband data and It has 3 G (HSPA) and Wi-Fi connectivity n, In addition to the already typical Bluetooth 2.1. Its overall dimensions are 105.6 × 48.4 × 9.6 mm, with weighs just 78 grams.

The phone has a 5 megapixel camera with fixed focus and 4 x digital zoom, as we have seen in other Nokia phones with decent results. Other aspects to be highlighted are the radio FM, or included in the phone (16MB of internal memory) 2GB microSD card. The autonomy of the Nokia X 3-02, according to its technical specifications, is 3.5 hours on 3G and 17 days standby.

Although not specified in the press release from Nokia, the images that we see on the phone we reveal that the chosen operating system is not Symbian S60 in its version for touch phones, but S40, a less capable system and supported but with the integration of services Ovi, Nokia Messaging, or a customizable Desktop.

The absence of receiver GPS, together with the use of S40, are two paragraphs that have least liked, especially taking into account the possibility of exploiting the free navigation with Ovi Maps, available in most important phones that Nokia is launching.

Next to the telephone has been the Nokia MD-11, a mini speaker to any room, with the possibility to connect two units and get stereo sound. The price of each unit is 20 euros before taxes. I leave you with a couple of videos so that you may know it better:
