Nokia ships X6 with capacitive touch

updated 10:35 am EST, Thu November 5, 2009

Nokia X6 available worldwide

Nokia on Thursday said it has started shipping the X6. Its latest touchscreen-only smartphone is the first from the company to use capacitive touch and responds much more precisely and quickly to input than the pressure-based resistive screens of earlier models. Reinforcing this upscale image, the X6 is also more advanced than the 5800 XpressMusic with a 5-megapixel camera and 32GB of internal storage.

The Symbian S60 device continues to pack a 640x360 screen, GPS and Wi-Fi. Nokia gives it 3G but in current form doesn't support North American frequencies outside of GSM and EDGE. Off-contract, the X6 will cost 450 Euros ($667) at full price but should cost less when subsidized by carriers.
