Security for virtualized datacentres

E-mail was easy to set up though, requiring just an address and password, though there's no push email option at this level. Incidentally, call quality was passable but had just a little bit of a tinny quality. Battery life proved to be pretty respectable, delivering a good four days of medium use, which translated to around 24-hours of continuous music playback.

Nokia X3

Overall, a fairly good range of features for an entry-level handset

Verdict

The Nokia X3 is not a world-beating phone. It's not the future and it won't stun anyone with its feature set, especially the average camera and lack of 3G browsing speeds. What it is though is a solid, music-based workhorse of a phone that does what it needs to well enough without putting much of a hole in your wallet or searing out your pocket. ®
