    I noticed that lot of bloggers and editors talking about Tube as the first Nokia Touch phone so I just want to say it is NOT!

    Tube is not FIRST full touchscreen Nokia phone, this is just first S60 based touch screen phone that will be powered with 5th edition of the S60 platform! The first Nokia full touch screen phone was Nokia 7710 which is also powered with Symbian OS (v7.0s) but with S90 platform on top of it.

    I have watched the videos and you can see how hard you have to press to activate functions on the phone. Its also really slow – the guy presses and literrally waits 3 seconds for the app to open – also you have to run your finger across the entire screen to view the next photo – its basically just a bad iphone knockoff – the only reason why i think people would buy it, is because its really cheap compared to the iphone – but you really can’t even compare it! Hey but I am all for competition in the market place – drives the prices down for us!
