Nokia C6-01 To Run Symbian^3

The new Nokia C6-01 smartphone will run on Symbian^3 and is set to be a touchscreen only device according to details leaked online.

Mobilegeekinc found some user agent profile XML for the device which indicates tht the C6-01 will run on Symbian and will not have a QWERTY keyboard as previously thought.

This confirms earlier rumours that cropped up after a picture of comparing the C6-00 and the C6-01 appeared online showing that the latter had a sleeker profile.

The phone will possibly carry a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen and is set to get a 8-megapixel camera with a flash, plus Wi-Fi and GPS.

The C6 is already available but has a slide out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel camera. It just received a firmware which solves a number of little niggles.

It is not known whether the C6-01 will be a direct replacement for the C6-00 or if it will complement it instead; the C6 costs around £240 SIM Free.
