After taking its own time, Nokia has finally decided to venture into the market which iPhone is ruling. With the Nokia Tube, the first touch device of the series 60, getting unveiled tomorrow, the leaders of mobile market would pose a strong competition for the Apple iPhone 3G.
Comparing them head to head:
|Phone Network||EDGE, GPRS, GSM, HSDPA (3G), UMTS (3G)||EDGE, GPRS, GSM, HSDPA (3G)|

With Nokia’s Tube matching and excelling the features of the IPhone in the comparison, experts say that the sales of the Tube would depend upon the price of the phone which would decide result of the war. But I would say the war has just begun. With Blackberry’s touch phone which is to be released in early Jan and advanced version of the 3G iPhone still in the pipe, the touch market is still seeing its dawn.
