Finally, the world’s largest cellphone maker launches its first mobile phone with capacitive touch, in the US. Nokia’s new X6 is now available for pre-order from NokiaUSA.com. If you are in Chicago or NYC, you can also see a real demo and grab one from the company’s flagship stores in these two cities. The device is probably better known for its capacitive touch support, and is being marketed as “The center of your social universe”. The X6 features a 3.2 inch screen with 640 by 360 resolution, accelerometer, 3.5 inch AV connector with TV-out, 5MP camera with dual LED flash, GPS and a solid multimedia support.
Although the UI is optimized to be finger-friendly, at the end of the day the phone still runs on Symbian S60 5th Edition. So unless you are an avid Nokia fan, the X6 may not interest you much, especially considering that there are other alternatives. For example, Android is a more modern OS and is possibly better optimized for capacitive/muti-touch. On the other hand, considering that Symbian is immensely popular with a huge support base, the X6 may quite well turn out to be a very successful mobile phone.
