Nokia launches new phones

KUALA LUMPUR: After much anticipation Nokia Malaysia has launched its flaship N8 Symbian ^3-powered phone, which offers access to local Web TV content from TV3 and 8TV.

The N8 will retail at RM1,690 and will be available from Oct 16 onwards.

Maxis customers can get their hands on the N8 by signing up with a Maxis voice and data plan. The packages range from RM999 to RM1,299 inclusive of 12 to 24-month contract.

The company also launched its first Touch and Type mobile phone, the X3.

The X3 is called a Touch and Type phone because it offers a combination of a touchscreen and traditional 12-button phone keypad. It allows users to tap quickly on the 2.4in colour touchscreen as well as enjoy the familiarity of the full keypad for text messages and phone calls.

It has a sleek design and at just 9.6mm thick, the X3 slips easily into the purse or the pocket. The X3 offers features such as media player, built-in FM radio and WLAN 802.11 b/g/n connectivity. It also comes with a 5-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom.

The mobile phone also features dedicated music and messaging keys for fast access to Nokia’s Ovi services that include social and entertainment apps. The X3 is priced at RM610 and will be available from Oct 23 onwards.

The other mobile phones launched were the C3 (RM520) and C7 (RM1,490), which will be locally available by the end of this month.
