Nokia has just announced the release of the first two entries in the new X Series of mobile phones: the Nokia X6 and the Nokia X3.
The Nokia X6 - formerly codenamed Alvin - is a top of the range touchscreen handset that arrives with the Comes With Music facility, which means that you'll be able to download as many songs as you like for a limited time period.
The long chassis supports a healthy 16:9 aspect ratio measuring 3.2in along with a built in 5-megapixel camera complete with a Carl Zeiss lens plus a dual LED flash. The built in memory, rumoured to be 32GB, has now been confirmed while other features include a TV-out socket, A-GPS, a web browser and support for Flash Lite. To be released before the year's end, the Nokia X6 will retail for €450, according to the Nokia Conversations website.
The second new X Series phone, the Nokia X3, features a sliding form factor and is, according to the company, "the first Series 40 Ovi Store-enabled device". Ideal for music fans, it includes stereo speakers, a headphone socket, FM radio, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Also out before the end of this year, the X3 will retail for €115.
