Nokia X6, the latest musical phone will be launched in UK, this week. A compact, square, touchscreen smartphone, enhanced with the capability to provide up to 35 hours of uninterrupted music, no doubt, a complete extravaganza for all those music lovers!
It is expected that the handset would be a great success in the Christmas market, as it is being offered free of charge if taken on a £35 monthly contract agreement.
Some of the important features of this phone include:
- A 3.2 inch touchscreen
- 32 GB of internal memory
- Support for UMTS network, HSDPA
There were times when a 1.3 megapixel camera was considered to be good enough, but now that mobile phones with a 8 and 12 megapixel camera have been introduced, the trend has changed.
Considering the new smartphones released by Nokia, Nokia N97 and the Nokia N97 Mini, offer a fine and satisfactory camera at a reasonable price.
Since 8 and 12 megapixel cameras have now been introduced, Nokia N97 and N97 Mini’s having a 5 megapixel camera is not considered to be a special addition.
Following the footsteps of Samsung, Nokia has also announced that it will soon be releasing a new mobile phone, designed specifically to display TV pictures by making use of DVB-H technology.
It will also have a built in Electronic Program Guide (EPG) making it easy for users to create personal channel lists.
According to reports, this device will probably be known as Nokia 5330 Mobile TV Edition and will be launched soon in Switzerland, Austria, Finland and Holland.
The Nokia N900, which had been delayed due to some optimization of the Maemo 5 operating system, has finally been released in the US market.
It was announced by the company today that it has already started shipment to pre-ordered phones. The Linux-based Maemo platform would give the users a wide range of connectivity options.
The N900 offers storage of 32GB, with access to 3G data networks, mail connectivity, websites book marking, social communities, images, music, multitasking capabilities, and much more.
After the success of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and Nokia N97, the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is the third touchscreen device from Nokia.
The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is similar to the Nokia 5800 with respect to style, but it comes with a 2.9-inch screen, rather than 3.2-inch found on the Nokia 5800.
It is also much slimmer and slightly more compact. Nokia has successfully kept the design complexity to a minimum, with the buttons around the sides of the phone kept to the basic.
Apple has no doubt, become the king of iPhones. Although there are many other phones having similar functionality of the multitouch smartphone, such as the Palm Pre and the Motorola Droid, but Apple has unstoppably ruled over all of them up until now.
A recent statement from an analyst firm, Strategy Analytics has authorized this, saying that Apple is now the single most profitable phone maker in the United States.
Although Apple’s iPhone series only encompasses a 2.5 percent market share, and there are just two iPhone models in the market currently, it is estimated that Apple has generated a profit of $1.6 billion through its smartphone division.
Nokia decided to recall more than 14 million cell phone chargers due to increased reports of electric shock from its consumers. This news came along another announcement stating official launch of it new Internet Tablet N900. This mobile cum internet tablet runs on Maemo 5( An Opensource fork of Debian-Linux Operating System).
Nokia did say that an exchange program has been started in order to exchange a certain number of Nokia-branded chargers, that were manufactured by a third party supplier. However, it is almost clear that the number of the affected chargers is around 14 million.
The problem starts when the plastic covers come loose, and tend to expose the internal components. This poses a great threat as it can potentially lead to an electric shock hazard, if anyone touches the charger while the charger is plugged into a live socket.
