Nokia C3.
Expected Q2 2010.
The Nokia C3 is a BlackBerry-style messaging device aimed at social networkers, which despite
the expensive looks is set to retail at just €90 before tax and subsidy when it hits
the streets sometime this quarter.
So what do you get for your €90? Actually, quite a lot. There's a 2.4" 320 x 240 pixel
display, 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, media player, 3.5mm AV connector, microSD memory
and an integrated QWERTY keyboard.
Although this isn't a 3G device, the C3 does support WiFi. Nokia are pitching devices like
the C3 as laptop substitutes, so you can use the C3 around home or another wireless hotspot
without being charged by your carrier.
This is a Series 40 phone rather than a Symbian smartphone, but Nokia have still managed to
equip it with support for social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, plus decent
web browsing capabilities.
Inside is a large 1320 mAh battery which powers the C3 for up to 7 hours talktime and 20 days
standby time. It's a bit larger and heavier than a normal phone at 114 grams and 116 x
58 x 14mm, but it is still very pocket friendly.
There are other low-end messaging phones competing with the C3, but this has the advantage that
it says "Nokia" on it.. and it definitely looks like a more pricey phone that it really
is. Nokia say that the C3 should be available during Q2 2010 in Slate Grey, Golden White
and Hot Pink colour combinations.
