Nokia C5 goes official, puts the phone back in smartphone

Nokia logoThe Nokia Cseries just went official - as expected the first member of the line is the Nokia C5. The new handset strives for simplicity, sticking to Symbian S60 3rd edition and is all about keeping connected with friends and family through all modern means of communication.

The design of the Nokia C5 is an epitome of simplicity - bar form factor and standard phone keypad with big comfy-looking keys. The screen is 2.2" with QVGA resolution. The Nokia C5 is aimed at the people who still prefer a regular phone, so no touching.

The phone keeps a 12.3mm slim waistline and weighs only 89 grams, even though there's plenty of steel used for its body. The 1050 mAh battery of the Nokia C5 is good for 26 days of standby and 12 hours of talk time.

The Nokia Cseries emphasizes on ease of communication, so besides the hefty talk time, there's a video call camera. Nokia Messaging handles the IM side of things with Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger support.

The phonebook of the Nokia C5 has also been updated and now shows Facebook updates too.

Other noteworthy features of the Nokia C5 include 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.

There's an integrated GPS receiver with A-GPS support and Ovi Maps 3.0 with free walk and drive navigation. The only noticeable omission is Wi-Fi connectivity. Check out the Nokia 5630 XpressMusic - it has similar specs but trades GPS for Wi-Fi. It's plastic all over though, there's no metal onboard.

The Nokia C5 will be available in the second quarter in Europe, Eurasia, SEAP, China and MEA. The expected price before taxes and subsidies is 135 euro. Expect more Cseries phones too, but Nokia is mum on any details on upcoming devices.

Also today Nokia officially explained their new naming convention - 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. This should make it very easy for consumers to guess what they can expect from a phone, just from its model number.
