It is Day 2 at Nokia World 2010 and they have announced another device, the C3 Touch and Type or better known with the code C3-01. We are getting a little annoyed with Nokia’s confusing naming conventions. The original Nokia C3 is a entry-level QWERTY candybar device introduced a while back. The new C3 Touch and Type is Nokia’s 2nd device that incorporates both keypad input and touch screen interface after the X3 Touch and Type. Touch and Type usability give users the best of both worlds by having simplicity of the touch while having the familiar control of the keypad.
This entry level S40 device is nothing much to shout about. It has a 2.4″ resistive screen with 240 x 320 resolution that displays a mere 262,000 colours. Screen aside, the C3 Touch and Type does give you bare essentials such as HSDPA (up to 10.2Mbps), HSUPA (up to 2.0Mbps), a 5MP Camera, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and a micro USB slot, all encased in a stainless steel body. Unfortunately GPS is not available for the device like its earlier X3 Touch and Type sibling. On board, there’s 30MB of storage and it is expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD.
The good thing about the C3 Touch and Type is that it uses the normal keypad layout that most of us are familiar with. As mentioned earlier, the X3 Touch and Type used a different layout with its last row keys shifted towards the sides.
The C3 Touch and Type is priced at €145 (approximately RM588) and it comes in 3 colours – Warm Grey, Silver and Khaki Gold.
