Nokia known for connecting people worldwide is in high beat to spread its magic among its trusted customers with the all new Nokia C1. Trying to provide a number of features into one phone, Nokia is on the run to introduce a whole new flashing C Series phones in the form of the Nokia C1 (model C1-00) and Nokia C10 (model C1-01 and C1-02).
The Nokia C1 (C1-00) is said to be affordable among the series. It offers a 2-in-1 double SIM solution which can be switched to another SIM card by simply holding down a key. This helps to reduce call rates and provides flexibility while on a holiday to another country and also helps in sharing a phone within a family and still use their own SIM says Alex Lambeek, Vice President at Nokia. This is said to be a great added convenience feature considering the low price of the phone.
The handset’s battery life offers a standby time of up to six weeks which is useful in those parts where access to electricity is inadequate. The standard flashlight is gelled with a vivid color screen and FM radio with 3.5mm standard headphone jack. It measures about 15mm and weighs 73g with the battery.
The Nokia C10 includes two models – C1-01 and C1-02, offering color screens, web browsing, music player, Bluetooth, GPRS and supports emails. It is said to be a well crafted and designed device. The C1-01 and C1-02 look alike and boast of a Series 40 interface in a stylish design. They offer dual-band ECSM and GSM communications as well as GPRS for data.
The C1-01 is an inexpensive phone priced at EUR 39. It is accompanied by a VGA camera, and an SD memory card slot of up to 32GB. There’s also an FM radio and a music player. The C1-02 is reasonably priced to suit the customers’ needs. It is sold at a cost price of EUR 35. In spite of the price being further than making phone calls, buyers are provided with Ovi Mail and Chat, Bluetooth and the same SD memory card slot and music features for music lovers.
