What would you get if you made the 5800 XpressMusic sleeker, slimmer, sexier and threw in a 5-megapixel camera?
The Answer is , the Nokia X6, of course !
Like its predecessor, the phone sports a 3.2-inch touchscreen that displays 16 million colours at a resolution of 320×640 pixels, and comes complete with accelerometer and proximity sensor. As of now, it is unclear whether this is a resistive or capacitive touchscreen, so more on that as we find out.
The 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics boasts of geo-tagging, autofocus and dual LED flash, not to mention video light for VGA video recording at 30 frames per second. As for storage, there is no expansion slot for a microSD card in this one. But would you really need it, considering it has 32GB of onboard storage? That’s more than enough space to enjoy all your songs on the 3.5mm headphone jack; and well, you can listen to the radio too, if you really want to.
Of course, it still runs on the Symbian Series 60 5th edition OS, powered by the same 434MHz processor and 128MB RAM as the N97 and N97 Mini. The X6 lets the user have any connectivity option he can think of, from 3G and Wi-Fi with UpnP to Bluetooth with A2DP and GPS with A-GPS.
The gaming features of the X6 are particularly impressive, with Spore, DJ Mix Tour and Asphalt4 coming pre-loaded on the phone. Nice!
The battery, as always, remains impressive as it clocks in 8 and half hours of talk-time, 35 hours of music playback, 4 hours of video playback and over 400 hours of standby time.

Nokia will be pricing the device at 459 euros (Rs 32,000 approx) – almost the same as the N97 Mini– when it releases in the fourth quarter of this year.
Is this the Finnish giant’s latest answer to the venerable Apple iPhone?
Lets wait & see !!!!!
