Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has today announced a new Symbian handset with a couple of twists, the Nokia C2-03.
Aimed at customers who prefer choice, the C2-03 features both touchscreen and type, and is capable of accepting two separate SIM cards. Nokia have made it extra easy to swap between SIM cards, placing the SIM slot on the side of the phone rather than underneath the battery. This gets rid of the need to remove the battery before inserting a SIM; a feature Nokia is calling “Easy Swap”.
What’s more, the C2-03 is capable of remembering the settings for up to 5 different SIM cards, so if you’re some sort of secret agent with multiple phone lines you’ll be able to swap between them with no problems.
The C2-03 isn’t going to make waves in the smartphone market – it’s more aimed at the price conscious customer. It does however boast a 400 hour standby time, talk time of up to 5 hours and music playback of up to 35 hours.
A brand new version of Nokia maps is installed on the C2-03 as well as Nokia’s new web browser for Series 40 mobile phones. For a budget handset you’ll be getting some decent features here, with maps, browsing, email and social networking with Facebook.
On the downside there’s only 10MB of internal memory, so you’ll need to use a MicroSD card to expand storage if you wish to add some tunes. MicroSD cards up to 32GB are compatible with the C2-03, so you can store plenty of media with no problems.
Around the back there’s also a 2MP camera for snaps, again nothing groundbreaking but handy for on-the-go snapping.
