Nokia today unveils the super slim Nokia X3 Touch and Type, with a 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 on the bright color touch screen, as well as have the familiarity of the full keypad for quick fire text messages and phone calls. Expected to be on sale in the third quarter, the Nokia X3 is expected to retail for approximately EUR 125, excluding taxes and subsidies.

Despite its size, the Nokia X3 is packed with features including 3G, WLAN, a music player and an FM radio. It comes with a 5 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom that can take both still and video images. The Nokia X3 also features dedicated music and messaging keys allowing access to important Ovi services including social and entertainment applications. In addition to Ovi Mail and chat accounts can be pushed direct to the phone via Nokia Messaging.

With a gentle glide over the touch screen people can go online and get access to many services including apps from Ovi Store. In certain markets, the new phone will also be available with Ovi Music Unlimited and all the music can be stored on the available 16GB memory card.
