x1-00 lacks dedicated audio chip (dac-33), which was present in 5310 Xpressmusic and others (google it). This is understandably to cut down costs.
Earphone reproduction might not be as Hi-fi as previous models, but cheap earbuds might not notice.
On the other hand, X1-00 loudspeakers are set to be tuned for clarity and volume
I think of this phone as a longlasting boombox with flashlight that can also make calls
this phone can bring nokia back....in the lower market, nokia is always the best...and its a low end phone...but without bluetooth..its gonna face a jerk....hopefully, its packed with a bluetooth at the release...
awesome ..phone i love music juz call n messaging ooooooooo...gr8 mobile 4 me
cn any one tell me how much it costs in us dollars ...?
Therefore not really for music lovers
ps Even 5310 has dac-33 dedicated audio chip
X1-00 will have a good loud speaker, but with no dac-33 dedicated audio chip, earphone quality will be average
this is mp3 player plus real cellphone..love it!
throw away camera, gps, social-net they're sacrificing batteray life.
Almost one week after official announcement, X1-00 is not yet listed in Nokia's website (Nokia Asia and Nokia Europe). Nokia is terribly slow now. How could they recapture their lost market share?
Awesome phone! I will definitely buy this one, only for it's battery. :)
From the point of view of a normal user the Nokia x1-00 is good kind of phone.Its a simple one not having java support.Truly dedicated to Music lovers.
Every thing is good in this phone for music lovers, just lack of internal FM antena.
two months standby, I want one as a backup to my smartphone with one day standby. Actuall, I think it may be better than the smartphone for calls and sms.
