Nokia C1-01 and C1-02

 Nokia C1-01 and C1-02 Available now
6th June 2010

A pair of low cost phones, the Nokia C1-01 and C1-02 are very similar in specification except that one has a camera and one does not.

Before we look at these handsets in more detail, we have to say that we think that the model names indicate the mess that Nokia have made with their new naming conventions. The C1-01 is the one with the camera, the C1-02 is the one without.. although you would expect it to be the other way round from the 01 and 02 suffix. Even more confusingly, neither handset is really related to the double SIM Nokia C1-00 which is a completely different device. It seems to us that Nokia have painted themselves into a corner with these model names.

Anyway, the C1-01 is priced at €39 before tax and subsidy, and the C1-02 at €35. Apart from the camera, both these C1 models have a 1.8" 128 x 160 pixel display, a microSD slot, Bluetooth, a music player, FM radio, GPRS and a stereo wired headset in the box. Talktime is quoted as over 10 hours with a maximum 21 days standby time.

 Nokia C1-01 and C1-02 (back) There are two dual-band versions available, depending on region. Both handsets are a very similar size, coming in at around 108 x 45 x 14mm and roughly 78 grams each (although actually the camera on the C1-01 adds 0.2mm and 1.3 grams but it's hardly a big difference).

The C1-01 should be available in two shades of grey, red and midnight blue, the C1-02 in black, dark plum, blue and cool grey.. although colours will vary by region and carrier.

These are two nice looking devices, although the model names are likely to cause some confusion when they come to market. They should be available during the final quarter of 2010.
