Nokia today announced a budgeted touch screen phone based on its Symbian S60 5th Edition platform. The Nokia C5-03 features 3.2-inch touch display, wi-fi, gps, 1000mAh battery, 2gb of micro sd card (upto 16gb supported) and comes with a 5 MP camera.
The Nokia C5-03 will be available worldwide by the end of the year for around USD 237 (approx) before taxes and subsidies.
The device has a 3.2-inch touch display and now features Wi-Fi, for fast internet access without the need or expense of a data plan. It also features a compass and assisted GPS for use with the latest version of the free Ovi Maps hands-free navigation service, now featuring public transport support and location sharing through social networks. Like many recent Nokias, you can put your most important contacts directly onto the homescreen so you can call, message or chat them up in just two taps. The C5 has a 5-megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom, but no flash. It measures 105.8 mm x 51.0 mm x 13.8 mm (L x W x H) and weighs 93g -- that makes it a similar size to the (imminently) forthcoming C6-01, and quite a bit smaller than the Nokia N8 or C7. It comes with up to 40MB of user memory and support for MicroSD cards up to 16GB. The talktime is quoted at 11.5 hours for GSM use and 4.5 hours using 3G. Standby time is estimated at 24-25 days. The operating system is Symbian^1 (aka. S60 5th edition touch-edition).
