Nokia goes gold

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has launched the 18-carat gold edition of the Nokia C3-01, with a price attached of €220.

The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type was initially launched at Nokia's annual symposium 'Nokia World 2010', as the successor to the 6700 Classic handset of 2009.

C3-01 arrived as a low-costing Symbian S40 device, with both a 2.4-inch 240x320 touch screen and a physical Qwerty keypad, along with a 5 megapixel camera.

At the time, this handset was only the second ever 'touch and type' device, with the best of both worlds – just as their X3 mobile phone was.

Nokia's C3-01 gold edition arrives with the same functionality as the original mobile, only with an exclusive 18-carat gold plating and an upgraded 1GHz processor – as their second fastest mobile phone, where their upcoming Nokia 500 boasts the same CPU.

The phone also offers up HSDPA, WIFI, Bluetooth capabilities and access to 32GB microSD cards – extending its own 140MB storage capacity, which has been increased from 30MB.

The C3-01 Gold Edition has already started shipping in selected markets, such as the Eastern European and Middle East which will be extended elsewhere with a price of around £192 for the mobile phone.
