Nokia X6 and X3 – the first X Series handsets

Nokia X6 and X3 – the first X Series handsets
The rumors about an upcoming presentation of the new X Series at Nokia World 2009 have been confirmed with the official announcement of two music-oriented devices.

The first cell phones of the new Series are the X6 and X3. The X6 will be the most technologically advanced music-oriented handset of the manufacturer to date and sport 3.2-inch touch sensitive screen, 32GB built-in memory, 5-megapixel camera with double LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics, A-GPS, 3.5mm jack and battery that will allow 35hrs of continuous audio playback. It seems all these good things will be tightly packed into a 14mm thin body. Quite promising indeed. The manufacturer will also provide software bonus features like Playlist DJ, variety of games (Spore, DJ Mix Tour, Asphalt 4) and access their Comes with music service. The handset is expected to roll out in Q4 at a price of $659 (459EUR) without VAT and subsidies.

The Nokia X3 is more ordinary - a Series 40-based slider handset and the first such device to come with Ovi Store support. It closely resembles the 5530 XpressMusic and features dedicated music controls next to its 2.2-inch screen. The other specs include 3.2-megapixel camera, microSD slot that supports expansion cards with capacity of up to 16GB, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3.5mm jack. You will be able to synchronize the device to Windows Media Player 11 and Ovi Player PC, plus the handset will come with support for Nokia Xpress Audio and Nokia Messaging 2.0. As a whole, there´s nothing really ground-breaking about the X3, but it´s price of $163 (115EUR) without VAT and subsidies looks more than appealing. The Nokia X3 is also expected to hit the shelves in Q4.

Yeah you are right that nokia is really making cool devices like the nokia N900 and the nokia X6 but Sony Ericsson is making less but extraordinary devices like the AINO(can be used as a remote for SONY PS3) and the SATIO(12 megapixel camera)............. and nokia could have put a 8 megapixel camera in the X6.. it would have been awesome if they did so.

FM Radio???? BIG F'n Deal!! Who the heck cares about FM radio????????? Yet you get to carry the power consumption liability and the cost of something no one in their right mind would care a tiny little bit about.

There is no power consumed for the FM tuner unless it is in use. I *think* I am in my right mind -- and I frequently use the FM tuner in my phone while jogging/rollerblading. Then again, I listen mainly to public radio (NPR), not commercial radio.. BTW: Love your nick; you sound just about as "Fair & Balanced" as the Real Thing (Fox).
