Nokia X6 now shipping in selected countries
The Nokia X6 was announced at Nokia World in early September and I made a post stating that it could be the dark horse of the event and be a standout product. Nokia posted a press release stating that the Nokia X6 is now available in selected markets with a retail price of EUR 450. The X6 is the first capacitive touch screen Nokia smartphone with a focus on their Comes With Music service.
You may recall that the X6 comes with a 3.2 inch capacitive 640×360 pixel resolution display, 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 32GB on-board memory, and all the other standard high end specs. I am very interested in seeing how it performs with this display, but honestly the display on the Nokia N97 mini feels just about like a capacitive display and I have NEVER used a stylus on that device so I don’t think it is as big of a deal as many people make it out to be.
The X6 also looks like it could be a decent gaming device with three included games; Spore by EA, Asphalt4 and DJ Mix Tour by Gameloft. I think the X6 looks a lot like my Zune HD and am curious to see how the two stack up together.
I don’t see any US 3G bands in the specifications. With the N900 having T-Mobile 3G bands I am very curious to see if we will see more Nokia devices supporting this frequency and as a long time T-Mobile customer I sure hope we do see this eventually.
