Second half of 08 for Nokia Tube

Details on the Nokia Tube might have broken out over the web like a nasty rash last week. But officially, it’s all still hush hush.However, we&r

However, we’ve just spoken with someone from Nokia who’s given the strongest indication yet that we’ll be seeing the touchscreen wonder very soon.

“I can confirm that we plan to bring our first S60 based touch UI device to market in H2 2008,” said the anonymous spokesman.

For those snoozing at the back, H2 means the second half of this year. So not the 3G iPhone matching June release date we’ve all been hoping for.

Still, this is the closest we’ve got to an official date. Shame they wouldn’t give us a proper name, what with the Tube title set to be jettisoned prior to its arrival in stores.

Results of our own poll show that gadget fiends would still prefer to fondle Apple’s multitouch masterpiece rather than Nok’s own effort.

We’ll be pestering Nokia for more details so stay tuned for more details as we get them. While you’re waiting, why not take a look at our Nokia Tube preview?
