When Nokia started its mobile phone business, it was all about four-digit model numbers in the beginning. And then the trend seemed to change with the N-Gage stepping in followed by the introduction of the N-series and the E-series. Now two more letters are joining the party – Nokia has registered the C-series and X-series trademarks. Finally the speculation has come true. Nokia X-series now is real. Nokia has announced their X-series phones, Nokia X3 and X6. The difference being that the Nokia X3 is a low end phone while X6 is on the higher end of the spectrum.
Nokia X6 Overview:
Nokia says the X6 will be “for people who love music, socializing and entertainment on the move.” The Nokia X6 is set to launch before the end of the year. The 32GB version is listed at £529.99 for release on 12 November, while the 16GB edition appears to be on hold until 23 February next year, with a cheaper price tag of £344.99.The Nokia X6 won’t be short on features: 3.2-inch display, 32 GB of built-in storage, and GPS receiver. However, there is one thing it will lack though: a keyboard or number pad. Instead, users will depend on the capacitive touch screen.
Like all Symbian S60 5th Edition models, the Nokia X6 will come with a full web browser (including Macromedia Flash Lite 3.0 support) and email software.
It will be a ‘Comes with Music’ device, providing unlimited access to the Nokia Music Store for a limited time. Users will be able to listen to their songs with Bluetooth headsets, or connect regular ones through the 3.5 mm headset jack. And Nokia promises that this device will offer 35 hours of music playback or 4 hours of video playback.
The 5 megapixel camera will be able to record images and video, then the user will be able to edit the video, upload it, or play through the TV-out port. This GSM phone will have HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi.
Nokia X3 Overview:
The Nokia X3 will have a similar look, but a different design. Feature-wise, Nokia X3 is essentially an S40 6th edition slider with smallish 2.2-inch QVGA screen and dedicated music keys. It has a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, quad-band GSM support with GPRS and EDGE, Bluetooth, FM radio, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD slot and integrated stereo speakers. Like its big brother, this phone will support ‘Comes with Music’. Users will need to get a microSD card for storing their files, but the X3 will come with a set of dedicated music and volume keys.The latest addition to Nokia’s music device portfolio is ideal for people who like to express themselves through their music and their communities. The Nokia X3 is a sleek and stylish slide phone with dedicated music and volume keys to control your sounds. It also has a combined send/end key and camera-shutter key for quick and easy operation. The design also features lighting effects around the dedicated ‘Navi’ key.
The Nokia X3 will offer software for email and instant messaging, web-browsing, and navigation with Nokia Maps. If this isn’t enough, it will also be the first Symbian S40 device to offer direct access to Ovi Store. In addition to its other features, the 3.2 megapixel camera will have support for video recording and editing.
The bottom line is that Nokia X Series is coming with a very promising range of models to woo customers from different social-economic classes with a bias towards love for music.
