Page 1 of 2
The Nokia X5-01 looks strikingly different from the other products of the Finnish mobile phone company. The square form factor with QWERTY slider is an unusual mix, which will provide a fresh experience to the users. This is a Symbian™ Series version 3 device, and it is targeted for the young generation users. This is because X5 01 has integrated top class social networking features and will be made available with a diverse range of colours such as azure, pink, purple, yellow green and graphite black. After good success of the previous X series model like X6 16GB, the company has launched two new handsets, which are X6 8GB and X5 01. Out of these two phones, seems to be more fun and entertaining.

The Look

Whether the mobile phone looks attractive or not it depends upon individual buyers or users. One thing is for sure, the look and the shape of the device are definitely different from the other mobile phones available in the market. Due to this factor, there is a certain appeal about X5 01. As mentioned above, the users can choose from the wide selection of vibrant colours. It is a perfect device in terms of looks that can be flaunted in the colleges and the night clubs.

The square shape of the phone might be a bit uncomfortable for the users to handle while taking calls or to carry. The handset measures 74.3 x 66.4 x 16.8 mm and it weighs 129 grams. The display screen of the mobile phone is not very big that might be because of the slider factor. The 2.36 inches TFT display boasts 256,000 colours and 320 x 240 pixels resolution. When you slide up the device, the full QWERTY keyboard is displayed. The users can handle the calls and navigate the menus without sliding the device as the major functional keys are provided at the bottom of the display screen.

Network and Connectivity

Good network support and proper connectivity options are vital for any mobile phone. The users of Nokia X5-01 can enjoy the connectivity of both second generation and the third generation of networks. The users of 2G network will get access to the quad band GSM 850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900; while the 3G users will get access to the tri band HSDPA 900/ 1900/ 2100. For data access, the users of X5 01 can use Class 32 GPRS or EDGE. However, high sped browsing can also be enjoyed because of the presence of HSDPA and Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g. As the mobile phone comes with good social network support, speedy internet access can help them to update their profiles with images, videos or messages easily. Therefore, the network and the connectivity options are quite impressive.

Memory Support

Young generation of the mobile phone users mainly focuses on the entertainment features and applications in a mobile phone. Nokia X5-01 is a good combination of messaging and entertainment features and hence the users can access varied applications as per their requirements. Downloading games, music, videos, images, software applications, etc. and installing them in the devices requires good storage capacity. If the phone is rich with numerous features and applications, but the storage capacity is restricted then there is no use of having such features. X5-01 includes a decent memory support that can store numerous applications, software and data. On purchasing the mobile phone, the user will get a 2GB memory card free. If the user wishes to expand the storage capacity even further, then they can use the microSD™ card slot to increase the memory up to 32GB. The internal memory support of the device is 200MB.

The Camera

Camera has always been the most important feature for the mobile phone users. It gives a great handy option to the users to use the mobile phone to click some interesting moments on the go. There is no scope of missing an interesting moment if a good camera phone is available. Nokia X5-01 enables the users to use social networking in a big way and hence with a good camera the users can upload new images instantly on their favorite social networks. The camera of the device might not be the best in the business or among the top camera specific mobile phones, but it is more than decent. It boasts a five mega pixel camera with LED flash.
