China handsets are already in the market with dual SIM functionality and touch screen but still they are considered to be less reliable.
This time Nokia takes the lead by introducing a dual SIM phone that comes equipped with touch screen. Also to satisfy the taste of conventional users, phone has also got numeric keypad.
Nokia C2-03 is a series 40 phone that combines touch and type functionality. Nokia has already introduced touch and type phones, for instance N97, but this is the first time dual SIM functionality has also been equipped with this.
Main features of the phone are:
- 240 x 320 with up to 65K colours touch screen
- Weight: 118g
- 2MP Camera
- 10 MB internal memory (expansion slot, upto 32GB)
- Dimensions: 103 x 51.4 x 17mm (L x W x H)
- Series 40
- Standby time: 400 hours
- Talk time: 5 hours:
- Upto 35 hours music playback time
Phone has an easy swap feature, so you do not need to turn off the phone for changing the SIM. For this phone has a slot at it’s side with which you can simply change your SIM.
C2-03 comes pre-equipped with Nokia Maps for series 40. You can simply use them even if you are offline. Also the phone has been equipped with series 40 browser that was available as an application on Ovi Store.
Mary McDowell, the head of Nokia’s Mobile Phones business unit, said:
The Nokia C2-03 makes managing multiple SIMs simpler, without compromising on any other features. Why should consumers have to choose between touch and keypad, or forego a great web, map, entertainment or email experience? With the Nokia C2-03 we have made it all available on one affordable device.
C2-03 in no doubt is a cost-effective yet functional phone and is expected to hit the markets in third quarter of 2011.
Approximated price for this phone is 9,500PKR.
