Music and a Hefty Price Tag, Nokia X6


Get ready for the big news: Nokia's first device equipped with a capacitive touchscreen has started shipping. You can head for the nearest store and check if the Nokia X6 is already waiting for you there since the device should be available in a number of countries across the world.

Yesterday we told you that UK and Finland will be the first to get it but according to Nokia the list will be much longer - Nokia X6 will initially be sold in Europe, Africa, Eurasia and the Middle East. So, as expected both Americas will have to wait a bit more.

The specs of X6 look so tempting. What you get is a 3.2" capacitive touchscreen, 32GB internal storage and a 5 megapixel autofocus sharpshooter. Also aboard there is a GPS receiver and support for Wi-Fi, HSDPA and Bluetooth.

The specs list is long enough to make you dream of the X6 but there are also some deal breakers. For instance, you get no memory card slot (fine, the inbuilt amount of memory is monstrous but memory cards are more convenient), the processor seems outdated placed next to the ones found in the competitors and so does the RAM memory (only 128 MB).

However, there is something even more disturbing - the high price tag (450 euro before taxes and subsudies). Yeap, you might say that along with the device you get a Nokia Comes With Music subscription but this service isn't available everywhere around the globe so many people will have to pay for it without being able to use it.

And when it comes to the enclosed Nokia WH-500 headphones, Nokia should have guessed that not everyone is fond of over-the-ear headphones (even if the WH-500 are said to be of high quality).

Nevertheless, Nokia X6 sounds like a great multimedia device and it will get even greater when the price starts dropping.
