Nokia is boosting its featurephone collection with the introduction of the X3 "Touch and Type" model, which includes both a standard 12-button telephone keypad and a 2.4-inch touchscreen.

As a successor to the Nokia X3-00, the X3-02 "Touch and Type" falls on the higher-end of the featurephone spectrum. Not just because of the combo design, but the X3 also comes with Bluetooth, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Other multimedia features include an FM radio, a music player, a 16GB memory card and a 5-megapixel camera/camcorder with 4x digital zoom. And being a Nokia product, there will naturally be access to the Ovi Store.

Available in five shades with a brushed aluminum design, the 9.6mm-thin Nokia X3 is expected to be released in the third quarter of this year for €125 ($161).
