It’s official. The square shape is in. First the Microsoft KIN One then Motorola’s Flipout, Nokia has joined the square party with its own Nokia X5 – which Nokia claims it is to be something to fill the gap between the Nokia X3 and X6, though we highly doubt that.
What does it have? Well, 8GB of flash memory, a full QWERTY keyboard and support for all the major IM and social networking sites – including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. It has a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, plus a microSD card slot. There is speculation that the phone will run on Symbian S60, but Nokia hasn’t confirmed it – mainly because Nokia hasn’t released a spec sheet. It also comes in four colours: black, blue, pink and a colour that is supposed to be yellow.
This comes to Indonesia first during Q3, with a retail price of €165 before any taxes and carrier subsidies. Images are below.
