This X marks the spot for those looking for a back-pocket music maestro. The X2 is tailor-made for listening to music and sharing your favourite tunes. Taking more than a little inspiration from its bigger brothers, the Nokia X3 and the Nokia X6, this candy bar is designed to fit in the slimmest of pockets at just 13mm thin. It certainly packs a punch in its lightweight frame.
Created for the music masses, the Nokia X2 comes with dual speakers, dedicated music keys, FM stereo and support for up to 16GB of storage via microSD card. Bluetooth 2.1 is supported for wireless music enjoyment, whilst hardcore music fans can opt for the 3.5mm headphone jack. Full speed USB 2.0 makes music transfer quick and easy and music can be managed via the Ovi Player PC client or Windows Media Player 11. Tuneful talents aside, the X2 also offers direct access to Facebook from the homescreen and comes with Nokia Messaging goodness for email and Instant Messaging. Other notable features include instant access to apps from Ovi Store, a five-megapixel camera and a video recorder.
If you only do one thing
Listen to music of course. Opt for being the annoying so-and-so in public; by blasting your tunes for all to hear via the dual speakers, or just plug in a pair of buds, and enjoy your tunes in the privacy of your own cranium.
Listening to music is one thing trying to sing-a-long is quite another. With the oodles of space available on the Nokia X2 and it’s myriad of talents, it could be deemed a pocket karaoke machine. Just make sure you don’t fall into these commonly misheard lyrics pitfalls:
