Nokia isn't famed for its love of touchscreens. Its first touchy Series 60 phone, the 5800 XpressMusic, only arrived on October 2008, and even then it came with a stylus.
But the X6 – along with the Maemo N900 – show that the Finns are starting to take finger-friendly phones seriously. This flagship 'Comes with Music' phone is the Nokia's first with a capacitive touchscreen, and therefore warrants closer inspection.
As you can see above, the X6 is a little chubby compared to its competitors. But it does at least house 32GB storage, which should be enough for around 700 albums – a not inconceivable total, given that it also comes with a one year subscription for unlimited downloads.
As is now standard issue for Nokia gadgets, the X6 comes in a blue box, which contains your Comes with Music gubbins and some slightly cheap-feeling headphones.
This is no disaster – on the top of the phone is a 3.5mm headphone jack (along with a mini USB port), so you can plug in your choice of cans.
So, how is that touchscreen? It's a marked improvement on the resistive versions seen on stablemates like the N97, and generally very responsive. But Series 60 still lags behind its main rivals (Android and the iPhone) as a digit-friendly interface, and the X6's 3.2in screen feels a little cramped.
Nokia's Ovi Store has improved greatly since its buggy early days, but the shelves still aren't warping under the weight of must-have apps.
Round the back is a 5MP camera with autofocus and a dual LED flash – we've yet to try it out, but judging by Nokia's previous efforts it should be a capable alternative if you've left your compact at home.
