About half a year ago all the bloggers reported about an upcoming S60 touchscreen-phone by Nokia. It was rumoured to be a mid-class device, making the touchscreen technology available to the lower price-segment. The codename of this device was “Tube”. Since a few days this rumour has turned into reality with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Back in the time when there were the first rumours about the 5800, there were also rumours that after the 5800 there will be a high-class Nokia Nseries touchscreen flagship.
Yesterday there was a Nokia event held in New Delhi. At this event Nokia officially confirmed that there is a Nseries touchscreen-phone in the works! The announcement of this device will be before the end of this year and the device is expected to hit the markets in early 2009.
“We will have lots of touchscreen phones coming up, including an N-Series device very soon.”
