Nokia C2-02, C2-03 and C2-06

 Nokia C2-03 Available now
21st June 2011

Three very similar handsets, the Nokia C2-02, C2-03 and C2-06 are all low cost slider phones with a touchscreen in single-SIM or dual-SIM configurations.

On the front is a simple 2.6" 240 x 320 pixel touchscreen that can be used with a finger or optional stylus. Underneath is a sliding number pad. Flip the phone over and there is a 2 megapixel camera. These C2 handset support microSD memory (with a 2GB card in the box), Bluetooth, and USB connectivity.

These are GSM phones with support for EDGE and GPRS data. Nokia say that they have enhanced the browser on these latest phones to make it more efficient and less bandwidth hungry, although it will never be as convenient as using a 3.5G or WiFi connection.

The C2-02, -03 and -06 run Nokia's Series 40 feature phone operating system plus support for social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Series 40 is familiar to people the world over and is very usable, although it doesn't compare with a smartphone operating system.

Built into the C2 range is an FM radio, a multimedia player capable of dealing with MP3, AAC and AMR audio, a very loud 106 phon speaker and a 3.5mm audio socket.

The key differences between these C2s are fairly simple. The C2-02 is a single-SIM version of the handset, the C2-03 is a dual-SIM version and the C2-06 is a slightly more glossy version of the C2-03. Both the C2-02 and C2-03 are pitched to sell at €75 before tax and subsidy, the C2-06 is marginally more expensive at €80.

 Nokia C2-06 The relatively large 1020 mAh BL-5C battery can power these C2 devices for up to 5 hours talktime and 16 days standby time. The whole package measures 103 x 51 x 17mm and weighs 115 to 118 grams. Of note is that the dual-SIM models have an external SIM slot to make it easier to swap the SIM card.

Nokia say that these C2 handsets should be available during Q3 2011. The C2-02 and C2-03 will ship in "Chrome Black" and "Golden White" colours, the C2-06 in "Graphite", "Golden Buff" and "Lilac".
