5 things we want from the Nokia Tube

The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic, or Tube as its known to gadget fiends around the globe, has been doing the rounds online for well over a year. Well, final

A touchscreen to rival the iPhone

The T Mobile G1 is the first phone to really take on Apple’s peerless touchscreen, with LG and Samsung’s efforts still coming up short. Nokia’s been working on the Tube for ages, so there’s a good chance the screen will deliver the goods. Will it be multitouch? We can only dream.

32GB storage support

If the Tube can cram in 16GB of on board storage and then support newly–minted 16GB SD cards, then we really are looking at a music phone to take on not only the iPhone, but even eat into the iPod Touch’s dominance too. Plus it’ll even make the N96 look small by comparison

BBC iPlayer

Nokia has already stuck BBC iPlayer onto the N96, so there’s no reason why they wouldn’t want to do the same with a phone that’s bound to rock a screen that’s as good, or even better than their flagship effort.

Nokia Comes With Music

If ever a phone was built for Nokia’s all–you–can–eat download service, the Tube is it. With unlimited downloads stuck on the ancient 5310 XpressMusic, and the Tube supposedly being unveiled at a Comes With Music event, we reckon this is a banker.

A decent camera

Nokia’s N series come with some of the best cameras you’ll find on a mobile phone, but their lower end efforts often disappointment. It’d be nice to see a 5MP one showing up here, but expect a more modest 3.2MP version instead.
