Nokia C2-02 C2-06

The Nokia Connection event in Singapore seems to have invited a storm since it’s been raining mobile phones since then. Nokia has unveiled three new handsets, the C2-02, C2-03 and C2-06 Series 40 .

We’ve already covered the C2-03 previously. Apart from sharing some features with the aforesaid, the C2-02 handset is of the single SIM sort that boasts of including push messaging options and supporting a wide range of IM providers. The C2-06 device has a seamless exterior with a smooth finish unraveled in a range of spry colors.

Mary McDowell, the head of Nokia’s Mobile Phones business unit, shared, “These phones all offer a web, maps and messaging experience second to none in the market. And with the choice of a touch screen or a keypad, we really have made everything available and easy to use in an affordable phone that comes in both dual or single SIM options.”

All the aforementioned phones ship with Nokia Maps for Series 40 which has built-in local maps and places. Users can view and plan directions for transit even in offline mode without the need to download maps from the web.

“We want the web to be easy to access, fast and affordable for all. The technology behind the Nokia Browser means that consumers, especially those new to the mobile internet, can get the information they need quickly, as the Nokia Browser serves up relevant local content-making the whole experience more personal and enjoyable,” added McDowell.

Internet browsing is touted to be swifter through data compression technology exploited by the Nokia browser. It also claims to integrate other features like low-cost surfing, faster download speeds, and an additional tab to view history. Stereo FM radio, media player and memory support expandable by up to 32GB are also listed on the three handsets’ spec sheet.

Expected to arrive in the third quarter, the Nokia C2-02 and C2-06 carry price tags of €75and €80, respectively.
