Nokia unveils trio of handsets

Finnish mobile phone manufacture Nokia has announced three new low cost slider handsets, in addition to the MeeGo based N9 today.

The new C2-02, C2-03 and C2-06 mobile phones all have a touch screen and physical keypad, which slides out from under the display. All the handsets run from the Series 40 Symbian OS, with both touch and type functionality.

The new Finnish fones arrive with a 2.6-inch 240x320 QVGA touch screen, a slide out keyboard, a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio and a music player, with a 2GB microSD card, customisable home screens, a fast web browser, preloaded Ovi maps and access to Facebook and Twitter.

Nokia’s C2-03 is the third dual SIM phone the company has brought out of late, for use with two SIM cards – one for business and a second for personal use, or one for local calls and another for international calling.

The handset even allows for the owner to use up to five different SIM cards, with all the separate settings being remembered by the phone. There is also an easy swap option that provides users the ability to change SIM cards in seconds, without having to turn off the phone or remove the battery.

Nokia’s C2-02 has a similar set of features and the look of the C2-03, only that handset supports a single SIM card, with push messaging and access to a wide range of instant message providers.

The Nokia C2-06 also arrives with the identical dual SIM capabilities as the C2-03, only with the colours of graphite, golden buff and lilac that are not see elsewhere.

Nokia’s new touch and type mobiles are expected to arrive in Q3, with the C2-02 and C2-03 costing 75 Euros and the Nokia C2-06 is priced at 80.
