    Nokia World ’09: The X3 and X6

    Ciara O'Brien

    Two new music phones were announced by Nokia at Nokia World in Stuttgart yesterday, expanding the “Comes With Music” line a little futher.

    First up: the X3.

    This is the first Series 40 device from Nokia that has been Ovi Store-enabled.  Designed as a compact music device, it has a 2.2 inch screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and has 4GB of user memory. That’s expandableup to 16GB through MicroSD cards, for those of you who want to put some serious music on the device.

    The X3 is a solid phone. It’s nothing too flashy and off the wall, so it probably won’t prompt a huge amount of discussion, but chances are Nokia fans will like it.

    The X6 is a bit more exciting.

    It has a 3.2 inch touch screen that can play 16:9 widescreen movie clips, comes with 32GB of memory and can play up to 35 hours of music (they say) before the battery gives out.

    It has A-GPS and Nokia Maps for navigation, and a 5 megapixel camera with a dual LED flash. And it doesn’t look half bad either.

    Both phones are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year.

      Lady Gaga? So Nokia are trying to market an MP3 phone to people who have absolutely no interest in music.
