Budget Nokia X3 Feature Phone Plays FM without Headset

Budget Nokia X3 Feature Phone Plays FM without Headset
You know how the guys at Sony Ericsson officially took the wraps off the XPERIA X2 smartphone yesterday? I guess the team in Finland wanted to do them one better, because we are now taking a look at the Nokia X3 feature phone. It’s no smartphone, but it’s still quite clever.

The Nokia X3 is a part of the newest X-series of handsets from Nokia, joining the E-series business handhelds and N-series multimedia smartphones. The Nokia X3 will be running on S40 6th Edition and it is clearly targeting the music end of the scale with its dedicated media controls. I guess the X-series is the evolution of the XpressMusic series.

Some of the features include a slide-out numeric keypad, a 3.2-megapixel camera, tri-band GSM, full HTML browser with Flash Lite 3.0, microSD expansion, embedded stereo speakers, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm audio jack, and the Comes With Music option for unlimited music service.

Interestingly, the stereo FM radio with RDS allows you to listen to the radio without having to plug in a headset. In all other phones, you need to use a headset because it functions as the antenna. Such is not the case with the Nokia X3, so that’s a plus.

Look for the Nokia X3 to sell for 115 Euro ($163) before taxes and subsidies when it launches in Q4 of this year.

    This statement is not true :
    "Interestingly, the stereo FM radio with RDS allows you to listen to the radio without having to plug in a headset. In all other phones, you need to use a headset because it functions as the antenna".

    There are many phones already in market which do not require headset to turn-on radio.
    Nothing seems to be new in this phone. same old UI and old body design.
