The Nokia X6 is an impressive handset

The Nokia X6 boasts a large display screen that essentially covers the entire front face of the phone. With a plethora of features and a futuristic design, the phone is bound for iconic status. No visible buttons are seen on the front of the handset apart from make and receive call buttons. The unit is slim line and compact, measuring 111 mm x 51 mm wide and 13 mm thick and utilises the ARM 11 434 MHz processor and Symbian OS v9.4 operating system, all of which ensures it has enough processing power to compete with any phone on the market.

The central element of the phone is its 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touch screen which comes with a useful scratch resistant glass surface. The screen displays 16 millions colours which means that images are of excellent clarity and colour reproduction.
The Nokia X6 comes with a raft of sensors and additions such as the accelerometer feature which provides the means to correct images to their correct aspect, whether that should be landscape or portrait. A proximity sensor switches the phone off when not in use to conserve battery life. Handwriting recognition is also provided for speedy and effective data and text entry.

The phone comes with a 5.0 mega pixel camera which has excellent image capabilities. Additional features include Carl Zeiss optics, auto focus, geo tagging and dual LED flash. The camera also doubles up as a video camera, with VGA quality recording at
30 frames per second. A secondary camera is also provided. A useful photo editing software is included with the package as well to allow editing of images on the fly.

Internet browsing is provided by the HSDPA and Wi-Fi connections, whilst additional connections provided include EDGE, GPRS and HSCSD. Blue tooth and the ever dependable
microUSB complete the elements of connectivity. GPS with A-GPS support, uses Ovi maps 3.0 and provides satellite navigation.

The Nokia X6, which has numerous similarities to its stable mate the Nokia N900 , is an effective combination of formidable styling and feature rich functionality. Its futuristic looks give little away. The advanced technology available through this
phone is enough reason alone to warrant a look.
