Nokia Launches C5 Budget Touchscreen Device

Nokia has announced the launch of its budget touchscreen device, the C5.

The device comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, an underwhelming 40MB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 16GB with the use of MicroSD canrds, and a 5 megapixel camera with 4X zoom, but no flash.

The Nokia C5-03 supports Wi-Fi connectivity, comes with a pre-installed GPS funtion with the latest version of Ovi Maps and is powered by the Symbian^1 operating system.

“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,” Nokia said on its Nokia Conversations blog.

The phone has support for e-mail set-up through Nokia messaging for either an existing webmail or POP3 provider, and has access to Ovi Music and the Ovi Store

Nokia is also hinting that the phone may be suitable for business customers. “For business users, there’s also the option of Mail for Exchange,” the company said.
