New to Nokia’s mid-range X series comes the X3 – a slim, perky consumer phone with a touch screen and a slide-out keyboard. Costing 125 euros (£103) it’s likely to be on sale from September.

From the touch screen you can control widgets, the alarm and music for example, and the slide-out keyboard allows for text input.

Music is a big feature on the phone with a built-in FM radio, a music player and access to the significant ovi music store. The Ovi app store is there as well.

There’s a 5 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom that can take both still and video images.

We’re quite interested in the unusual shape: a colourful candybar slider, with huge buttons. And check out the dusky metallic shades it comes in.
