Five months after its unveiling, the Nokia X5 is finally hitting our shores. The X5 slider phone looks like a cross between a Nokia E series smartphone and an XpressMusic handset. Nokia X5 is on sale for Rs. 10,499.
It sports a 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash, 2.36 inch QVGA display and a slide out QWERTY keypad. Storage is covered by a 200 MB internal memory and bundled 2 GB microSD memory card.
The phone sports dedicated music keys, and comes with a year's worth of unlimited music from Ovi Music. Nokia X5 music oriented features include a built in 'Surprise me!' option that plays random tracks when the phone is spun around. 'Playlist DJ' feature allows playlist creation tools. When music is not playing, you can shake the phone to see the number of new SMSes in the Inbox.
It runs the same Symbian Series 60 OS found on the E-series smartphones, which gives access to slew of social networking services. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and USB 2.0. Nokia X5's battery is claimed to last 16-days on standby and gives 24 hours of music playback.
