Nokia C5: Smartphone for the Masses?
Nokia’s new C-Series phone is out with its first model — the Nokia C5, powered by S60 platform which we normally see in high-end, full-featured smartphones from Nokia.
2.2″ screen @ 240×320 pixels
up to 16GB via microSD (2GB included)
HSDPA 10.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
3.15MP autofocus camera, LED flash
Symbian OS v9.3 Series 60 rel. 3.2
Stereo FM radio with RDS
GPS with aGPS support and Ovi Maps 3.0
What’s conspicuously missing is WiFi connectivity. Li-Ion battery is also rated at just 860mAh.
Is the Nokia C5 an attempt to bring the smartphone to the masses? If the expected retail price of Php8,500 is any indication, it looks like it. Should be out before end of 2nd quarter.
