Nokia Tube, the latest and highly rumored exceptional Touch phone, is no longer a rumor as live images of the device leaked today plus some details about the device feature pack.
As symbian-freak.com reports, Nokia Tube runs on the latest Nokia 5th generation S60 full Touch UI and will be the first phone of a brand new handset lineup (no N-series here). Actually, Nokia Tube will not be even the flagship of that lineup – the actual flagship handset will be released shortly after the Tube.
Yet, the Nokia Tube already seems like a high-roller device that will have its say on the full touch market. The Tube is expected to have a 16M TFT display with 360 x 640 pixels resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. The size of the display will be somewhere between 3 and 3.5-inches. The display will offer a tactile feedback but sadly, won’t have multi touch function like the iPhone.
A stylus input will also be provided as an option and using it would hand-writing recognition.
The communication department of Nokia Tube is at its peak, sporting quad-band GPRS/ EDGE/UMTS and HSDPA with uPnP support, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP and AVRCP support. The built-in GPS with A-GPS and geotagging support completes the wireless communication set of the hi-end Nokia Tube device.
There is also going to be an auto-focus camera but the megapixel count is yet unknown.
Nokia Tube is expected to hit the market at the 1Q 2009
