Nokia Debuts X6 "Comes With Music" Smartphone

Nearly three months after it first appeared online, the Nokia X6 has officially been released in the UK and will be available direct from Nokia's website for £449 unlocked.

The phone, which we first reported in September 2009, has a 3.2-inch touchscreen that can display 640x360 pixels, 32GB built-in storage and a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and a Carl Zeiss lens.

The rest of the features are pretty similar to the Nokia N97 although the X6 is powered by a 433MHz ARM processor, significantly lower than the rest of the competition.

We noted last time that the X6 might well be one of Nokia's sexiest mobile phones yet but that ultimately, Apple "owns" the high end segment simply because it has a much better application solution in the shape of the App store.

The X6 is currently available at Phones4U exclusively and will be on sale on contracts starting from £35 per month. Interested N-series customers will be pleased to know that they can trade in their phones and get a £10 monthly discount.

Play will be selling the blue/silver version of the phone for as little as £400 unlocked. The phone, which will be possibly be replacing the extremely popular Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, is currently listed as coming soon on the site.

Our Comments

The X6 is a great looking smartphone but Nokia has only managed to solve only part of the equation. We also eed to know more about whether the pay monthly versions will also come with Comes With Music as well. If that is the case, then it will be a superb bargain.
