Video: Nokia X2 hands on, menu and features review

July 26, 2010 3 comments

Following the unboxing of the Nokia X2, 3BEPbEnokia has a couple more videos of the phone and the UI.

As with the unboxing, these videos are in Russian. IMO, I quite like the design of the X2, check out the metal back casing too – and for a “2” range. Being on Xseries, there is a music focus with the Nokia X2, as shown by those discreet dedicated music buttons at the red trim. Also, in the sales package, you’ve got a decent pair of in-ear headphones that doubles as a headset.

Nokia N8 and Samsung Wave playing Asphalt 5

Following yesterday’s Nokia X5 gallery by cssinsight on flickr, here’s another bunch of photos of the Nokia X2, C1 and the Nokia N8 next to the Samsung Bada powered Wave.

The C1 below is that dual SIM Nokia phone that has a sweeping, tapered design reminiscent to that of the Nokia N8.

The Nokia X2 is part of that music/youth/entertainment segment, packing a 5MP camera, LED flash and dedicated music buttons..

Nokia X6 Technical Specifications (and live photos). Comes with…Capacitive!

September 2, 2009 2 comments

This morning at NW09 Nokia announced several devices, two of which were new unknown handsets of a new Xseries line up. The X3 and the X6. (Not to be confused with X1/X2/X3 Xperia range from Sony Ericsson)

The more interesting of the two, the Nokia X6, is now the Music Flasgship (if there is one) and Nokia’s first phone to have a capacitive display.

It is a Comes With Music ONLY handset to make sure you take advantage of Nokia’s unlimited free download music service. What else?

  • 32GB in built memory (no expansion)
  • 3.2″ 16:9 640×360 capacitive display (under glass, not plastic)
  • 433.9MHz Arm 11 processor
  • 128MB RAM (Undisclosed how much is free to the user)
  • S60 5th Edition
  • 5MP camera with Dual LED Flash
  • VGA video at 30FPS
  • TV-OUT
  • A-GPS
  • the 5800 media bar “button”
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • 3.5mm jack

…and it’s 3.5G.  It also comes with 3 free N-gage games that are actually pretty good – Spore , D Mix Tour and Asphalt 4. There’s no USB charging by the looks of the AC-8 standard pin charger.

All that for 459EUR/402GBP/654USD unsubsidised although Nokia were quick to point out that the price will be FREE on selected plans – Perhaps around £35 range considering it is Comes with Music – coming Q4 2009.

Will all this be enough to follow in the 5800’s success?

The X6 is available in a white-blue or a black-red theme.  Read on below for the technical specifications and live Photos from Eldar/Stuff TV.

…from this angle the X6 sort of resembles this…

Back to the X6…

Here’s a demo video of the X6. Take note how lightly it’s being tapped. NW09 attendants confirm capacitive at last! Though no mention of this in the official tech-specs or any hype from Nokia even though this is a really big deal. Most likely that making a fuss of capacitive is gonna be a downer on why they’ve been using capacitive (and why the N900 has it too).

I know it should really be more on the responsiveness of the display rather than a resistive vs capacitive debate but for me, capacitive has always felt better (Hero/magic/g1/i8910/iPhone). Yes you can be more accurate with resistive, but to achieve that accuracy you need a stylus. Handwriting recognition? Except for asian markets, what’s the performance advantage over QWERTY? And the whole glove/fingernail thing. Erm. Take off your gloves or cut your nails. It’s a touch screen – just a feather light touch. Not a press-screen. One less thing for Engadget guys to knock, eh?

X6 looks somewhat thicker than it actually is – and in some angles, there’s something oddly very N95 classic about it.
