With this, one thing is for sure that Apple’s iPhone will have a tough competition in the coming months. Nokia’s touch sensitive handset will be called the Tube 5800. An auto focus 3.2 megapixel camera along with the support for DVB-H technology would be one of the many features of this model. The handset would support Java and a 3.2-inch touch sensitive display would add a difference to the handset. The set would be equipped with a direct upload feature for videos and images, bluetooth, WiFi capability, GPRS, 3.5mm earphone socket and a lot more. It would also be compatible with 3G and HSDPA. Moreover, it will have a TV out socket and support Haptic Technology. Images taken from the camera can be geo tagged and a lot more features are being expected to build in.Some of the features which look pretty certain are -
Another option for HSDPA could be on the cards for this release, but no-one seems to be sure yet.
Thing is all these features are already present on the upcoming iPhone v2.0 ! Not only that, the iPhone also comes with a whopping 8GB/16GB of storage - seen only on special editions in the Nokia NSeries or in other words the best of the best of Nokia. Then where does the phone actually compete ? That is what remains to be seen..
