Nokia X6 Smartphone Goes On Sale

The 16GB version costs only £299 while the 32GB one will cost you an extra £150. This one doesn't come with the "Comes With Music" package however, which is a disappointment.

The price is likely to fall even further since this is Nokia's Suggested Retail Price. The Nokia X6 is likely to be pitted against the HTC Touch Diamond2 and the LG Viewty Smart, both of which fall in the £300 price range.

Furthermore, Vodafone has also put up a registration page for those interested in getting their hands on the smartphone, which is touted as the successor for the very popular 5800 handset. The placeholder points to a release date sometimes this month.

The camera comes with a 5-megapixel camera with two LED flashes, a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 640x360 - higher than the iPhone 3GS, Symbian S60, WiFi, GPS and HSDPA plus Bluetooth.

The little brother of the X6, dubbed the X3, has also appeared on several networks and Talkmobile, which runs on the Vodafone network, has a particularly tasty offer with 100 minutes, 100 texts and unlimited internet for £10 per month.

Our Comments

The more expensive Comes With Music version of the phone costs a staggering £500. That's £200 more than the non CMW version. The question therefore is whether you will spend that amount over the forthcoming 12 months or so (that's £17 per month) on music tracks and albums. Still, shop around and you might find some great bargains.
