If there is always an odd one out of every crowd, the Nokia X5-01 will probably be it. This is an unusually square-shaped smartphone that can certainly call to ones attention. It is the second square-shaped phone from Nokia, the first being the 7705 Twist released last year.
X5-01 was released in September 2010 as the gap filler between Nokias X3 and X6 models. It has lots of cool features that are currently popular and in-demand among the younger generation.
The square screen provides a more convenient space for Internet browsing, especially when viewing social media networks.
The X5-01 is an improvement from the 7705 Twist with its conventional sliding form. The latter model is indeed a very interesting and unique mobile phone, but the X5-01s side sliding mechanism is far more convenient.
The larger body also resulted to a larger QWERTY keyboard that is easier to use than the tiny-keyed keyboards of smaller phones.
It also has several cool features. A little shake of the phone will automatically open your unread messages; spinning it while playing music will make the player jump to the next random track. It has excellent audio quality and loud speakers.
Lastly, the Nokia X5-01 is cheaper compared to other smartphones.
The irregular shape of the X5-01 makes it difficult to keep in the places where one would normally stash a phone, like a jeans pocket.
This doesnt have a GPS service, which is unforgivable in a smartphone.
This phone is also too casual and not very compatible for business and work oriented uses.
The X5-01 smartphone is ideal for people who love to visit social networking sites, play music, capture and review images and videos, and send instant messages though their mobile phones. It is packed with cool features that can satisfy the young and casual market. Its unconventional appearance is a plus factor for mobile phone collectors.
All in all, Nokia X5-01 is obviously manufactured and marketed for younger buyers.
