Nokia Tube press photo leaked

Earlier today we reported that Nokia may be set to release the Tube to the world on October 2nd in London. While announcing and releasing a handset in the same breath is hardly Nokia’s style, its first S60 Touch offering has been delayed enough that our Finnish friends may have gotten fed up. A leak of the first official-looking press photo of the Tube further supports an announcement sooner rather than later. We know the specs, have seen some spy photos, secured a tentative launch date, and now we have a press photo. Not much more left to do other than kick back and wait for this bad boy to get officially outed.

Nokia preparing to launch Tube on October 2nd?

Nokia preparing to launch Tube on October 2nd?

Word on the street is that everyone’s favorite Finnish handset manufacturer has a big announcement prepared for October 2nd. Rumors are swirling that that company is set to formally introduce the much-anticipated Tube touchscreen device at a special event in London. If true, the event would coincide with the full-scale launch of the company’s Comes With Music distribution system. Nokia is on the record as promising to have the Tube in our eager hands by the end of the year, so an October 2nd announcement followed by a retail release sometime after would make sense. Additionally, obvious competition from all angles make a Nokia touchscreen device announcement in the very near future that much more probably. That being said, we’ve been hearing a variety of things about the tube as of late, most recently referring to an October 8th release that seemed dubious at best given the myriad delays that have afflicted development. Stay tuned, as we’ll no doubt hear more in the coming days.
