With all the hoopla surrounding recent touchscreen mobiles, from the LG Prada phone AKA the LG KE850 and the upcoming Apple iPhone it seems manufacturers might be racing to come to market with a competing product.
We’ve spotted several touchscreen concept renderings recently, the Aeon concept (pictured above), and even the Nokia Exhibition phones but Nokia may now be a few steps beyond mere mockups and these photos might be proof.
Rumors. man we do our best to steer clear of them, but sometimes, what can you do? Especially when it’s about a new N-Series device. Now Reuters is reporting that Nokia will unveil its first mid-priced TV phone during 3GSM.
Phones specs are scant at the moment but it is said that the Nokia N77 will receive TV signals in DVB-H and be priced near 200 – 300 EUROS, which is roughly somewhere between $250 -$400 USD. Keep your fingers crossed.
Edit: This has been declared as not true and not happening.
