Nokia has come with a bunch of surprises at the Nokia World Conference in Stuttgart, Germany last week. One of the surprises was the announcement of the soon to be released Nokia X3. This device comes from the line of the Xpressmusic series. The Nokia X3 is a slider device with a 2.2-inch screen, FM radio and SHDC-compatible microSD slot, music player, Bluetooth 2.1, stereo speakers, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, voice commands, lighted effects, dedicated music keys, messaging, a speakerphone, and a personal organizer. Music transfer should be easy through a USB cable, the Ovi Player PC client, and Windows Media Player 11. It’s also the first Series 40 OS phone to be compatible with Nokia’s Ovi applications store.
However, the Nokia X3 didn’t come alone but with its sibling, X6.
Having the same decent music credentials as X3, this device runs a Series 60, fifth-edition interface and is a full world phone with quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support. Features include a 5-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and dual-LED flash, voice commands, a full Web browser with Flash Lite, Bluetooth, a personal organizer, messaging, a speakerphone, TV-out capability, a video and image editor, Assisted GPS, and 32GB of internal memory. And its screen uses a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. Moreover, besides the music player, which should resemble that on the Nokia 5800, X6 comes with the Comes With Music service, which gives you unlimited access to the Nokia Music Store. Music playback time is rated at 35 hours. Bboth devices are planned to be shiped during the fourth quarter of 2009.
