Nokia X3 Smartphone Unveiled

Nokia announced Today that its X3 smartphone will hit the European consumer market sometime in the third quarter and sell for around 125 euros ($160).

Touted as a "Touch and Type" model, X3, is offering users both a touch screen and traditional keypad.

The 2.2-inch touch screen offers a resolution of 320x240 pixels. And at 9.6mm (less than 0.4 inches), the X3 will also be one of the company's slimmest, according to Nokia.

By Nokia’s own admission, the company has given people a larger screen with clear icons and menus plus kept critical keys such as the send and end keys.The phone also has added dedicated function keys for important links like music and text messaging.

Connectivity options include 3G, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1.

Nokia X3 has a 3.2-megapixel camera which provides a 4x digital zoom to take both still photos and videos.

Nokia is also positioning the X3 as a music player with dedicated music keys, built-in stereo speakers, and an FM radio. In certain markets, the phone will include Ovi Music Unlimited, a subscription-based service that lets X3 owners download free music from the Nokia Music Store and sync those tunes between the phone and a PC.

Nokia is selling a stereo headset and mini speaker as accessories to plug into the X3.

The company hasn't announced if or when the X3 would be available in the United States.
