Nokia X5: The Qwerty Slider Phone

Nokia X5: The Qwerty Slider Phone

With a bit of an odd form factor, the Nokia X5 is like a cross between the Nokia X3 and the E72 with a slide out full qwerty keyboard at the bottom.

The form factor is new to Nokia and they said it appeals more to females because it resembles the “compact make-up kit” or something.

Nokia X5
2.36-inch screen @ 320×240 pixels
200MB internal memory
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
5MP autofocus camera with LED flash
Symbian OS 9.3, Series 60 v3.2 UI
FM tuner w/ RDS

The X5 also has an accelerometer for auto-rotate but does not have GPS built-in.


Comes in Pink, Blue, Black, Yellow Green and Purple.

Here’s how the UI looks like — puts up Facebook and Twitter in the homescreen:

The recommended retail price (RRP) is 165 euros or about Php9,500.

    another competitor to the microsoft kin and motorola flipout. of the three, the flipout seems to be the best choice, design-wise.

    the edge of the top part is way too close to the top row of keys on the bottom part… doesn’t look like the most comfortable qwerty keypad, for sure.

  3. Pedro says:

    cute but it looks more of a Cherry Mobile than a Nokia… definitely for the women…

  4. Jehgan says:

    Its really like a make-up kit. Even the interface is compacted. hmm… bette ask my sister if this appeals to her taste.

  5. Angie says:

    What comes in pink, blue, black, yellow green and purple? The phone itself or the keychain attached on the phone?

  6. Jon says:

    Doesn’t look good and modern. Looks like something from the 90’s. The keys are too small, so its practically not for people with big thumbs / fingers.

    Screen is too small too! Yikes. Looks like a retro gadget. Lol

  7. Sarah says:

    Would you know the price? It’s soo cute!!!!!

  8. aiesalas says:

  9. MyMaria says:

    Alcatel first used the squarish foem factor on their mobile and made mainstream by Motorola with their Andoid-powered FlipOut

  11. Redge says:

    i don’t like it

  12. Adrian says:

    i hate the design.

  13. Kinny says:

    I’m as girly as any girl can get. i’m not crazy about it. It’s too square! Prefer the 6700 slide form factor and color wise. The colors on these seem dull.

  14. Ethan says:

    God that bezel is ugly.

    when is Nokia C3 coming to the Philippines?? Indonesia just went crazy with it, forming long queues in Nokia stores just to get one. Nokia should put the Philippines in their priority least, kse 6 out of 10 filipinos daw trust Nokia.

  16. Teknisyan says:

    the screen looks cramp at masyadong maliit… pero maganda ang specs nya… looks like a “game and watch”.

  17. Ryan Ang says:

    I have to agree that the Moto Flipout might be the best one in this category.. If nokia managed to make it thinner and screen larger 320×320 (with touchscreen), then it might be a winner. I could’ve gotten one

  18. karissa says:

    i still like the motorola flipout
    i just hope i-release nila dito sa pinas :(

  19. Nunz says:

    I like the pink one!!!..luv it!!!

  20. AC says:

    When will this be released in the Philippines?

  21. MyMaria says:

    so yeah, same question.. when will this be available locally? hopefully within the next month ba?

  22. Katrina says:

    Is this available already in the Philippines? If so, how much? Thank you! :)

  23. Lane Damiles says:

    I’m lucky to touch one… I love the Design… it’s candy like compact thing in your palm… the interface is really fast… SMS, MMS, E-Mail? Make my day! this unit is built for replyin’ or sending lotsa messages and it’s fun using it… fast action pic? theres the 5.0 Megapixel camera… it’s not carl zeis or something.. but it’s A-Ok for standard camera users.. then here comes the Net! yeah baby! it’s WiFi! .. and finally… the Music!!! the external audio is Soft and Clear… just adjust a little with the built in Digital Equalizer.. then turn on the Wide Option.. then there you go! easy listening for everyone ;) … I will definitely grab one of this…
