Nokia 5800 Tube may be released on Oct 8

with 4 comments

Update: According to Nokia India’s marketing director, the company plans to launch a touchscreen mobile by the end of 2008. Though he did not mention the phone, it is obvious that he was referring to the Tube as that it is the only known touchscreen phone Nokia has in the works. And if that is indeed the case, then the release date might not be Oct 8 as reported below, but more closer to Christmas.

Rumor has it that Nokia might release the 5800 Tube on October 8th in UK. For those of you who don’t know what the fuss is all about, the 5800 Tube is Nokia’s first touchscreen phone with the new version of it S60 operating system. Now, we have heard these rumors as early as July, but they turned out to be false. Let’s see if the new rumors hold true. No word on which operator and at what price yet.

  3. Not yet. However, my guess is that given it is a touchscreen phone with multimedia capabilities, I expect it to be around $500-$700 without contract.
