Jack of all trades?

What was the X6 aiming at?

Music?
The core music application of a music phone has a memory leak and can't handle an audiophile's music library.

Video consumption?
This comes to mind considering 16:9 screen and stereo speakers.Sadly though, the screen scores a 0 on sunlight legibility,Nokia don't collaborate with Corecodec's Coreplayer to have a video player which plays 720p videos out-of-the-box on my E63 and still stick to the rusty old Real player.

'Touchy-feely'phone?
Not quite ,since Symbian has always been a touch-me-not UI.There was nothing much to click on a non-touch Symbian phone.Symbian,sadly,feels dated on touch devices.The whole purpose of touch screens is to do the task at hand the fancy,intuitive way.Nokia could have done better if they specifically designed a UI that runs on top of Symbian(eg.Touch flo).

'Capacitive goodness'
Seriously,the X6 is nowhere near capacitive touchscreen heaven.Pinch zooming?Multi-touch? All these are unheard of in the X6s spec sheet.

'Cameraa..'
No excuse if Ewan or any other person on the planet took it, the photos scream Cheap lens,compromised optics.

Fash/Glam crowd
The X6 has quirky and somewhat questionable looks.The 'tube' 5800 looks better,sturdier.
