Unknown Touch and Type Nokia slider spotted in the wild - read the full textIt seems the Touch and Type family is going bigger with this unannounced slider. It packs a resistive touchscreen, dedicated call keys and runs on S40 UI. It will most probably go under X3-xx, C3-xx or something.

It has to be c3 or the other series, Since C5 series must be a S60.

Also, I remember that GSMArena said that this phone have pretty good touch sensitivity, also the great haptic feedback makes the experience really nice. Also, since the screen is kinda small, capacitive touch would make the operation quite unconfortable.
Moreover, there are countries that still rather resitive technology, mainly because handwriting recognition, stylus, and gloves use

Why does Nokia keep insisting on resistive touch screens? With the price of capactive touchscreens going down, I don't understand why they keep putting them on their low-/mid-end phones. I mean, do these still use styli?

*Rants about fanboys & trolls being narrow minded*
*Praises different strong point of different platform*
*Explains the need for different models targeted at different audience*
*Expresses disgust on biased opinion*
*Questions age/education of some posters*
*Apologizes for ranting*

There, I just summarized everything :D

Sliding form factor is cool and everything but nokia need to do ALOT more to get back into the market. WinPo7 is what they should be working on. This didnt excite me :(
Hoping Nokia works towards UI change S40 is getting old and fast.
