Nokia launches affordable C series phones

Nokia has only recently come out with four new affordable handsets in its C-series. A dual SIM functionality on a Nokia handset is just not a Nokia thing, but these sets are equipped with that as it is mainly aimed at the developing countries. Nokia C1-00 will be shipped somewhere in the 3rd quarter of 2010, whereas the C2-00, will be coming out in the last quarter of 2010. These two are equipped with double SIM, whereas the other two devices, the Nokia C1-01 and C1-02, are single SIM handsets.
Both will start shipping somewhere in the last quarter of 2010. Price would be somewhere around 30 to 40 euro ($36 to $55 USD) before tax and subsidies. The handsets which support dual SIM cards will not have them active at the same time; it will be totally up to the user to decide which of these he wants to be active. On the other hand the Nokia C2-00 is equipped with a true dual SIM functionality with both SIM cards active. Other good things about the Nokia C2-00 are a microSD slot supporting up to 32GB cards and Ovi Life Tools, Nokia’s solution for agricultural and health information.

Nokia is a true innovator of sorts and nobody knows it better than them that a bike is the most important conveyance in the underdeveloped countries so they have come up with a very novel bicycle charging solution for emerging markets. Basically you just have to mount the charger onto the bike as the dynamo works to charge up the device. Nokia are basically just on the right track as bicycles are used a lot in the underdeveloped countries and this thing can really serve as a great incentive.
