March 4th, 2010 - 11:04 pm by Wajiha H.
C5 is the official first member of the C series that has been anxiously waited for. It is a rather simple set with a Symbian S60 3rd edition technology and is all about modern means of communication and the connection to your loved ones through it. This is a simple bar phone for people who still like to keep it plain that is without any touching. The screen is 2.2" with QVGA resolution; waistline is slim at just 12.3mm; light weighed at only 89 grams.
Nokia C5
This phone is all about communication and the ease of it. There’s a huge talk time and besides that there's a video call camera. There is Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger support as well. There is the facility of showing regular Facebook updates too. There is a 3.2MP autofocus camera, 3.5 mm audio jack and stereo speakers, a 2GB microSD card in the box (cards up to 16GB are supported) and stereo FM radio.

For connectivity purposes there's an integrated GPS receiver with A-GPS support and Ovi Maps 3.0 with free walk and drive navigation. But yes, there is lack of a proper Wi.Fi connection in the phone. Rumours are that the Nokia C5 will be available in the second quarter in Europe, Eurasia, SEAP, China and MEA. The price at which it will be available will hover somewhere around 135 euro, which is cheap definitely. There are rumours about Nokia getting some other phones in the C-Series as well, but nothing can be said with surety right now.

Nokia lately has also officially announced their new naming convention; which will be one letter and one digit. The letter signifies the type of phone - business phone, flagship, entertainment-centric phone, etc. - and the digit is a rough indication the amount of features/price class of the phone. Now with this just the model number will be enough for the customers to guess what the phone will be all about.
