Nokia C3 priced, arriving next week

Update: Read our Nokia C3 Review.

According to several retail stores I asked in the malls, the Nokia C3 will arrive next week and will have a price of around Php7,290 (cheapest I surveyed but there’s a sale on Saturday).

The Nokia C3 is an entry-level phnone with a full qwerty keyboard and could be considered a cheaper alternative to the popular Nokia E63, only without the 3G.

Saw this unit back in June during the Nokia Connections 2010 event in Singapore.

Nokia C3
Quad-band GSM/EDGE
WiFi 802.11b/g
2.4″ 256K-color QVGA display
2 megapixel fixed-focus camera
QVGA video recording at 15fps
Series 40 UI, 6th edition
FM Radio with RDS
Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
microSD card slot (8GB supported, 2GB included)

The Nokia C3 favored WiFi connectivity over 3G and offers dedicated features for social networking.

The poster above shows the price of the Nokia C6 (Php14,450), the Nokia C5 (Php7,950) and the Nokia C3 at Php7,290.

Sale Update: Nokia Philippines is running a promo for the C3 — Php1,000 off on July 31, Saturday. That makes the Nokia C3 at Php6,290 for the day.

    Definitely eying on C6 since it was announced.
    Sir Abe, na try nyo na po ba gamitin ung C6? I was just wondering if it has an ‘on screen’ keypad just in case ayoko gamitin ung QWERTY keypad, Thanks in advance!

    just bought a Nokia C3, ubos na ang stocks in just 3 hours from store opening. got it with P1,000 discount plus 2Gb memory card (nationwide promo for one-day)… best-valued Nokia phone so far! more people were lining up, the stores only stock 30 units for today.

    Nokia C3 will be sold to its original price at P7,295 starting tomorrow.

    so is the C6 available in the philippines already too?

    What do you guys think of C6?

  8. @nexusboy

    really? you got your c3 with 2gb memory card??

    Got mine at MemoExpress Festival Mall but without the memory card!

    The saleslady said only the first 15 gets the memory card (even though i mentioned that the website states that there is a 2gb microsd included in the box)

    so i guess that’s the catch, but after reading your post…i feel naisahan ako…need to call nokia…

    The C3 price of P7,290 or the discounted P6290 is a scam. Worldwide the C price is below P5290. Meaning to say Nokia Philippines is unfair and cannot be trusted.

  10. how are all the c3 users doing? what are your comment of the phone? please let me know. drop by my blog, Thank You! :D

  11. confused_chique

    san kaya mas ok? E71 or C3?? i have the E71.. :)

  12. kaso s40 lang lang pala sya hindi symbian ahehe

    the phone is crap. sabagay, I have a N82, and I shouldn’t be comparing it with the C3. I thought C3 would have multi-tasking capability as I’m used to multi-tasking with my N82. it’s just like a musicexpress phone with WiFi. I’m planning to sell mine and get a N8 instead. if you guys are getting a C series phone, get the E or N series instead. C3 is for my grandma, with it’s really big fonts and limited configurations, no multi-tasking capability (for the oldies or the kiddies).

  14. PlanningToBuyC3

    @disappointedC3user, how much would you sell your C3?

  15. disappointedC3user

    @PlanningToBuyC3: I would like to sell it for 6K. but a prospect buyer (a relative) is looking at it right now. i’ll keep you posted. Ãœ

  16. Is the phone’s priced lowered in the Philippines? kasi may ads na nagsasabi na imbis 7 thousand naging 5 thousand nalang? at tsaka by none-multi tasking does it mean i cannot play music while texting?Greatly appreciated if someone would reply
