Vodafone to offer Nokia 'Tube' iPhone rival

Maybe next month

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Pictures have emerged online revealing which network operator Nokia has chosen to launch its much-hyped 5800 XpressMedia - aka 'Tube' - phone.

The leaked images clearly show a Vodafone logo positioned on the bottom of the phone’s front, just below the touchscreen and other controls.

Although this isn’t proof that the phone will be available exclusively though Vodafone, it at least gives punters an idea of where they can expect the talker to land first.

It’s also been claimed by an unnamed source, who spoke to website Talk About Nseries, that the Tube will hit UK stores in just under one month’s time on 8 October.

Nokia’s already hinted that the phone will land in the UK before Christmas, but these latest revelations mean that Vodafone’s UK customers probably won’t have to wait for Santa to fill their stockings before getting their sweaty palms around a Nokia Tube.
