Nokia readies iPhone competitor

'Tube' to be launched soon

Nokia remains at work on its answer to the Apple iPhone, codenamed "Tube", a company official says.

As depicted in a slide at a recent US event, Tube looked similar to the iPhone. The Nokia device showed graphical displays, and other capabilities will be featured, such as the ability to upload photos.

"It's our first touch device," says Tom Libretto, vice president of Forum Nokia. Interfacing with the system is done via touch, as with the iPhone. The company has not announced the planned shipment date for Tube.

The Tube will support Java, something Apple has been reluctant to do with the iPhone.
