Come one, come all to the touch screen phone market.

A day after the launch of T-Mobile's G1, photos of Nokia's touch screen phone, the Tube, were leaked and several reports say its launch is imminent--possibly as soon as Oct. 2.

The Tube will be launched into an increasingly crowded smartphone market. The most visible new entrants in that space include the iPhone 3G and the Google G1. Plus, Research In Motion's BlackBerry Storm is expected to launch in the coming months.

The Tube mimics some of the iPhone's features, including an accelerometer to determine if the device should display photos in landscape or portrait mode. It also is expected to have GPS, built-in WiFi, be HSDPA-capable and have a TV out signal. [FierceWireless]
