Nokia X6, N900 release just days away?
Nokia is spoiling for a smartphone fight, and battle could be sooner than we thought. Its high-end X6 and N900 are just days away, if internet mutterings are to be believed.
While Nokia itself has remained tight-lipped over both new handsets, online vendors are suggesting we’re looking at 12 of November for the X6 and 16 Nov for the N900.
Expansys lists the X6 available for £529, listing the 12th as the “expected” release date. Its features list marks it as a clear iPhone contender: 32GB of onboard storage, a 3.2in touchscreen plus a full year of free music downloads from Nokia.
The N900, meanwhile, is more pocket computer than phone. It runs Nokia’s new Maemo operating system, has a full Qwerty keyboard, 32GB of storage and a 3.5in touchscreen.
Online comparison site Omio claims hundreds have signed up for two-year N900 contracts through Orange and O2, and the date associated in every case is the 16th. Expansys seems to agree: its N900 page estimates the Nokia heavyweight will arrive in 10 days. If you want one without a contract, it’ll cost you £499.
