New Nokia X5 Square QWERTY slider announced

CJ Reports that Nokia has announced the new Nokia X5! Hang on, wait a minute, that looks nothing like the previously announced X5.

What the hell is going on here? Two phones, same name but totally different design (See China X5 on left)? What’s the freakin point of these names if you can just assign them to any phone? I’d understand it if it was the following year’s upgrade but they’re both for 2010.

Anyway, minor RANT over.

It’s certainly more in keeping with the Xseries design (X6/X3) (with a Twist of Nokia 7705?)

  • Seems it comes in gold, purply-pink and turquoise (not official colour names, I’m terrible at deciphering colours).
  • The keymat appears similar to N900 style buttons in portrait QWERTY format (Old Eseries stylie)
  • Apparently has a 5MP camera
  • 185 Euro
