Nokia X6

The Comes With Music story continues in Nokia Land with the up and coming launch of the X6, due out in the fourth quarter, no doubt in time for Christmas.

Capable of playing up to 35 hours of music, the X6 is a powerful entertainment device, combining 32GB of onboard memory with a slick 3.2 inch finger touch interface.

The ultimate device for young music lovers and social butterflies, the X6 has a 16:9 widescreen optimised for photos, videos and browsing. With direct access to Ovi Store, the X6 is a hive of activity that brings 20 friends and virtual communities, like Facebook, to the homescreen.

The kids are gonna love it – if they can afford it on release at around £415.

 

Nokia X3

The new Nokia X3 also joins Nokia’s music portfolio. The X3 is designed for music lovers and is the first Series 40 Ovi Store-enabled device. The X3 is a sleek and compact music device that comes with stereo speakers, built in FM radio, and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

This device comes with pre-loaded audio tracks and music videos to encourage more of the same, a music player with an extended play list that supports MP3, MP4, AAC, eAAC+, WMA, WMV formats, plus users can manage their music with both the Ovi Player PC client and Windows Media Player 11.

X3 will retail on release in the fourth quarter at a more manageable £105, roughly, so this is the one more likely to get the attention of young music lovers.

Omnia PRO (B7610)

With separate modes for work and home, the Omnia PRO (B7610) gives users that want to separate their two lives the option to stay organised and maintain their work-life balance.

The hybrid touch-QWERTY form offers great versatility and ease of use. At play, users can capture their favourite moments with the five megapixel camera with smile shot, or enjoy a video on the clear 3.5 inch AMOLED display.

A-GPS means you don’t need a separate navigation device, and this chap comes with one gigabit of internal storage plus an external memory slot capable of taking up to 32 gig. All in all, the PRO B7610 is everything the hard working, social type needs in one device.
