Nokia Introduces X6 16GB Smartphone, Loaded With Games

Nokia hasn't really kept up with Apple and HTC in terms of smartphone innovation, but it looks like the X6 is making up for lost time. The original X6 came in a 32GB form and couldn't be purchased without Nokia's own music subscription service "Comes With Music." The new X6 is a 16GB version that doesn't require you to purchase the Comes With Music addition, which means that this version is a far more viable option for those who already have a favorite means of procuring audio.

The phone has room for over 5000 tracks, a 3.2" capacitive touch panel, four new finishes (black, white, white/pink and white/yellow) as well as the latest version of the Symbian operating system. The battery can last up to 18 days in standby or 11.5 hours when talking, and it'll even last 4.5 hours when watching video! There's a 5MP camera onboard (with a dual LED flash), a TV-out function, on-phone video editing and support for Ovi Maps.



Owners will also find Spore, Asphalt and DJ Mix Tour pre-loaded, with availability promised for this quarter. Pricing has yet to be announced.

Wow pretty nice specs and it runs on a GSM (At&t) or CDMA (verizon/sprint) network. The capabilities are extensive as well. I wonder if it would work on Verizon, I know it could the cdma mhz rating is across the board. It also offers talking while surfing or using the web and many other things.

Spore as in the game that was released a few years ago? That's really cool!

The battery life on this phone is pretty impressive considering the large capacitive touchscreen. Also the 5 MP camera with flash, TV out function? I think this device could compete with the iPhone. Some negatives:

-price is too high at $700+

-Symbian instead of Android

I think Symbian rather than Android is really fine as long as they make or have enough available for it. I am still disappointed, but waiting for Android to at least partially fulfill it's potential.

Same here rapid1, I've been waiting the Android to be as popular as the iPhone OS. But perhaps that's the wrong way to look at it. It seems any new phone or media player's success is measured against their Apple counterparts. The holy grail of every new product is to be the next iPhone killer, or iPod killer. A smart phone doesn't have to outsell the iPhone to be successful, even 10% of the business would make it a smash hit.

Thats very true. Plus in many cases such as the original 1000 dollar app is nothing useful. Whereas on the symbian, android and many other packages the apps in general are useful. So numbers although recognized as a bell point really mean nothing. If you have 1.5 million apps and a million are nothing or more (which is largely the case with the iPhone) what actual value does it bring.

Wow why is the processor so under clocked this thing must run hot or something.

I was wondering about that too. In comparison, the iPhone 3gs sports an ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz with PowerVR SGX graphics.

Thats what I'm saying the Droid runs the same processor at within 50 of that clock to does it not? I don't get the strategy on this one, and it's more expensive than either at straight out price as well.
