Nokia X6 'Comes With Music' touchscreen smartphone

The Nokia X6, the first capacitive touchscreen mobile from the Finnish manufacturer, is now available to buy in the UK.

The X6 is billed as an entertainment phone, and has 32GB of onboard memory, but no expansion card slot. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack so users can connect their own headphones without an adaptor. 

The X6 is a slimline candy-bar styled phone and measures 111 x 51 x 13.8mm thick. It features Wi-Fi, geo-tagging, HSDPA, Bluetooth and A-GPS. The claimed standby and talk times are 420 hours and 6 hours respectively, or Nokia claims it can play music for up to 35 hours between recharges.

The 16:9 widescreen 3.2-inch touchscreen is capacitive, like Apple's iPhone 3GS, but doesn't support multi-touch, so you can't pinch to zoom in and out of the screen. However, the X6 trumps the iPhone with a 5Mp camera and dual-LED flash.

Nokia X6 flagship phone downloads from Nokia Music Store

The Nokia X6 is the company's Comes With Music flagship phone. It gives unlimited free music downloads from the millions on offer at the Nokia Music Store, either directly to the X6 itself, or to users' PCs.

The user interface gives access to the usual apps, and there's room for 20 on the homescreen. Games and applications can be downloaded from the Ovi Store, but the X6 handset comes with the Spore, Asphalt4 and DJ Mix Tour games pre-loaded.

The X6 is available to buy from today, exclusive to Phones4U and Orange in the UK. The X6 handset is free on monthly contracts of £35 per month and above, but consumers can reduce the monthly cost to £25 by trading in their old N-series handset.
