Trading in an old mobile phone may have suddenly become significantly more appealing after the Nokia X3 Touch and Type was unveiled as a potential replacement.

The Finnish brand has released the updated device, which features a unique combination of touchscreen and traditional keys.

It explains its first Touch and Type model is a bid to “continue driving innovation” in what is a particularly competitive market.

“We have designed the Nokia X3 to be a touch and type device because typing is ideal for SMS and social networking where fast and frequent input is needed,” says Mary McDowell, executive vice-president of mobile phones at Nokia.

She adds the design of the phone is the result of research that suggests people want to type on their handset with just one finger or thumb.

The company says its X3 range offers the complete entertainment experience, including a comprehensive music-playing facility.
