And then BlackBerry did the same thing with the Passport.
potato4k, 10 May 2020LOL. Innovative and look different? How are these innovative? Even Nokia themselves did a bett... moreOf course it was innovative. Can use touch & type also in same device. This is innovation and many more innovations they had done in past. In our modern day cell phones can we type without seeing the screen, No!. But you do in any keypad phones without seeing screen. We use to play games like who types faster without seeing the device, while we were young.
NOKIA (2000-2010) was the Mount Everest...
After so many years of growth Apple and Samsung are still at sea level.
NOKIA use to bring new design, concepts with every new phone unlike today where everyone launching same phone with different name.
We miss the old NOKIA.... Hope u will revive soon
bob, 10 May 2020i like these phones, just wish they would fit them with high end cams, a modern 64mp sony sens... moreYeah. They had character and personality. They could reinvent the typical slab of today with something with a bit o originality
I wish they could launch a cheap Nokia phone with a Qwerty keyboard and running Android Go. My mom is using a Nokia 205 and such a phone would be perfect for her to learn how to whatsapp etc.
Emitchell, 10 May 2020I miss these Nokia featured phones.........they are just too awesomeYeah, unlike Nokia's feature phone(s) by HMD these days. I have one of them and... dang, Nokia from the past was even far better when it comes to feature phones.
yeah it was excitement pleasure to see that Nokia sign board of touch and type phones in 2010
One of the best device that I've used to have.
"Would you want to see the Touch and Type series reborn as a KaiOS phone?"
No. KaiOS should switch to touchscreen only, like Firefox OS.
i like these phones, just wish they would fit them with high end cams, a modern 64mp sony sensor would be nice (not fishbowl ultrawide). i would probably get one then.
IT always baffled me that Nokia gave those phone powerful hardware but they still felt slow
and could not multi-task
Got so excited when I saw that picture, but no, just a flash back!
I have this semi smartphone back in the day! Still have it but the keyboard is dead. Thinking of fixing it soon ✌

>Would you want to see the Touch and Type series reborn
No, I definitely don't. The phone should have either a keypad or a touchscreen, both at once looks like a useless excess. Imho.
These were the times where a single glance can let you what phone is that
Now, if we cover the branding and camera, hard to tell what phone is it
The design world of smartphone has become so boring lately
XCIV, 10 May 2020Back when phones looked innovative & different and not just a generic slab of glass and al... moreThis 100x, I really miss those times... I understand that there isn't that much room for experimentation these days on the bar smartphones, but at the very least they should bring back the two-stage camera shutter button...
Had the X3-02 9yrs ago. With the dedicated messaging button, it would take me to the sms app while I'm on a different app. Pressing back would then take me back to my previous app. So somehow I can say there's a bit of multitasking in it LOL. But damn that design was so gorgeous.
