Nokia launch X3 touch & type: a candybar music phone

1016Nokia-X3-Touch-And-Type-500x366.jpg

New to Nokia’s mid-range X series comes the X3 – a slim, perky consumer phone with a touch screen and a slide-out keyboard. Costing 125 euros (£103) it’s likely to be on sale from September.

From the touch screen you can control widgets, the alarm and music for example, and the slide-out keyboard allows for text input.

Music is a big feature on the phone with a built-in FM radio, a music player and access to the significant ovi music store. The Ovi app store is there as well.

There’s a 5 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom that can take both still and video images.

We’re quite interested in the unusual shape: a colourful candybar slider, with huge buttons. And check out the dusky metallic shades it comes in.

  • If you you tried almost everything and still you can ‘feel’ your X3-02 has spyware in it, I think it’s better to re-install the phone’s software. Nokia Ovi Suite will help you with that. You can download the program at Nokia’s site. Re-installing the software doesn’t mean all your files will be lost; just don’t forget to click the ‘yes’ button when Ovi Suite asks you to make a backup of your phone’s files.

  • I am planning to get a Nokia X3. I know that its doesn’t have Wifi and 3G.
    I will be using my EDGE. I wont be doing browser.

    I want to know if we can configure Email in it?

  • Nokia X3 is a fully touch screen…so I would recommend not to buy it…….. fully touch screens are hard to operate and also chances or damages are high…

  • Those who are using “nokia x3 touch and type” please share your opinions about the model.how often do you have to charge it? does it hang often? and do you think its better than nokia c5 ?

  • this is a feature phone and it will not get any spyware because it cannot be infected. only smartphones are vulnerable to spyware. that means you dont need the software and there is none available anyway

  • This article is very usefull for me! I can see that you are putting a lots of efforts into your blog. I will keep watching in your blog, thanks.

  • I like the X3’s slim size. The features is not super but I think it can serve as a good phone for normal users. Besides, it’s a fashion phone :)

  • This is a really nice looking phone. In a world where it seems anything less than a smart phone is crap, I gotta say I like the feature of it having an FM radio. It never came out to consumers across the pond I don’t believe though.

  • Well, it depends on your preferences. X3 is a better looking slider while x2 is a mere bar phone but if you are a music enthusiast, x2 is the choice with dual speakers although the sound quality of x3 is decent enough, the main lag in the x3 is the camera which doesnot equips flash which x2 has for you although the image quality is good only on papers. You can use youtube for video review of both….

  • how to tighten it up!!!

  • I have downloaded games i don’t want and i cant work out how to get rid of them

  • I cannot transfer my text messages over. They are still in the memory of my nokia 6111 but when i try to move them using the restore option of content copier they dont copy ove

  • I think they will probably be launched by end of 2010. But of course thats only my rough estimation. I think iPhone is a better phone than nokia if you were to compare the UI. I’ve used my iPhone 3G for slightly more than a year and I have never regretted my choice. Of course, again, that’s only my point of view. The rest is up to you. (:
