Nokia's New Music Phones: the X3 and X6

Nokia World kicks off today in Stuttgart and the company has already detailed specs for its Booklet 3G netbook offering. However, exciting forays into the netbook market aside, the Finnish mobile phone maker also introduced a few new cell phones and these include the X6 and X3 music phones.

With up to 35 hours of music playback, the X6 features a 3.2-inch touchscreen interface. Aimed at "social media butterflies" as well as music lovers, Nokia boasts that the S60-powered device's 16:9 wide screen is perfect for browsing and sharing photos. The X6 also boasts a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and 32 GB of storage. At €459 (before taxes and subsidies) it's a steep price to pay for a cell phone, but when you consider that carrier subsidies will likely knock a decent chunk off of that, as well as the fact that it's also a 32 GB mp3 player, it actually sounds pretty decent for such a nice looking phone.

The company also added the X3 slider to its music portfolio. The X3 boasts a 2.2-inch screen, support for up to 16 GB of storage via microSD card, full speed USB, Bluetooth, FM radio, a 3.2 megapixel camera and stereo speakers. The first S40 device to come Ovi Store enabled, the X3 is quite a bit cheaper than the X6, checking in at €115 before taxes and subsidies.

A lot of people have fallen in love with Nokia's XpressMusic phones over the last year or so. Any XpressMusic fans out there tempted to upgrade? Let us know in the comments below!
