Helsinki - Struggling cellphone firm Nokia on Wednesday unveiled its first three basic phone models with large touch screens, filling a gap in its suite of products.

Consumer demand for such devices has been rising fast, especially in emerging markets. Last year 105 million low-end touch screen handsets were sold globally, according to Strategy Analytics.

Nokia said its Asha 305 model would go on sale this month for €63, excluding subsidies and taxes. The Asha 306 and Asha 311 models will go on sale next quarter for €68 and €92, respectively.
