Like detective work? Good, this one's for you. That's the supposed first picture of Nokia's Tube
which we've enhanced a bit to see all the detail. According to Symbian-Freak
, the device code-named "Tube" will be Nokia's first touch S60 device but will not be a flagship phone. Another higher spec'd phone will ship "shortly after." The display is said to be between 3- and 3.5-inches with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a camera (with another up front based on the picture) which they say is "way better" than the iPhone's but not on par with the existing N-series shooters. The phone is said to ride atop quad-band GSM/EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA radios with built-in Bluetooth, WiFi, uPnP support and a stylus. Something you'll apparently need judging by that skinny scroll bar. GPS? Yup, that too. No multi-touch on this model but it is said to provide haptic feedback in a package supposedly smaller (maybe a little bit wider) than the N73
. We also notice an "XpressMedia" label on the phone which would indicate an affiliation with Nokia's XpressMusic
class of media devices. You'll also notice that the icons have been slightly revised
since we went hands on with the S60 Touch UI
back in February. Real deal or not, it's a mystery worthy of your skills.
