The Nokia X6 may not be the most desirable handset on the market right now, but it has a few things going for it. For a start you get a healthy amount of storage, with either 16 or 32GB versions on offer. It’s also a nice form factor to hold and at last for a Nokia, it has a capacitive screen. Now though, Phones 4u is making the X6 a more attractive proposition for hardcore clubbers.
Phones 4u is bundling the b@TV application with the Nokia X6, which allows users to stream music and video from some of the biggest clubs around the world direct to their phone. So if you want to soak up the atmosphere of Ibiza or chill out in Thailand without having to worry about British Airways strikes, all you need is a Nokia X6 and some headphones.
Firing up the b@TV app on the X6 brings up a list of the latest videos from various venues around the world – so if you fancy listening to a set from your favourite DJ, but they happen to be resident in another continent, you should be happy as Larry (although I’ve never figured out why Larry is so happy).
You’re treated to videos of clubbers playing up to the camera while it wanders around the crowds of each venue. And of course if you choose a beach location, you’ll be treated to lingering, gratuitous shots of girls in bikinis, which could be considered a highlight, albeit a gender specific one. You also get the chance to share clips that you particularly like with your friends, assuming that they’re also into the clubbing scene.
Whether b@TV makes the Nokia X6 a more attractive proposition comes down to whether you’re into clubbing or want to keep track of your favourite DJ, wherever they might be. I don’t think it would sway me, but since I turned 40 last year, I’m guessing that I’m not really the target demographic.
