Unboxing the Nokia X6

A year and a half ago, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was launched alongside S60v5. Since then? Crickets…

The N97 was a bust. The N97 mini, albeit competent, was too little too late. Symbian touch was only marginally improved, with the addition of widgets and kinetic scrolling – congrats on catching up!

The N900 was a flash in the pan – Maemo 5 was delicious, but the meal was undercooked.

Enter the Nokia X6, the latest S60v5 phone, and Nokia’s first capacitive touchscreen – finally another device to join the ranks of the awesome Samsung i8910.

Repeat after me: capacitive, capacitive, capacitive, capacitive :)

The X6 is what the 5800 should have been all along – capacitive touchscreen, faster processor, N97-grade camera (5 MP, auto-focus, dual LED flash, Zeiss optics).

The icing on the cake? It’s super sexy and it’s affordable. From a hardware perspective the X6 could just be Nokia’s best phone right now – the perfect balance of features.

What’s missing? There’s no micro-SD support (but 16 GB of built-in storage) and there’s no USB charging. On the software front, it’s the best Symbian touch device I’ve ever used, yet I’m still longing for Meego.

Check out my unboxing pictures and video:

I’ll be putting the X6 through its paces for a few weeks, so stay tuned for more coverage. Thanks to Nokia Blogger Relations for providing me with a review unit.
