First look at the Cseries with leaked Symbian-running Nokia C5

04 February, 2010
Symbian is going to push out S40 out of all but the most basic phones - the newly leaked Nokia C5 is good evidence of that. With a modest price tag this handset would steer many buyers in Symbian...

I still use my 1100. Never got a better phone primarily because I wanted one with 3g and good keypad. And so this phone looks really good for me.

The market is already saturated with touchscreen products, and nokia already has a decent one in the price range in 5230. If its priced decently had doesn't have any glaring compatiblity/battery life/build quality issues then this is definitely my next phone.

Oliver, 16 Feb 2010U know,I really like Nokia.. But I just wish they would sta... morefor most of the users the look is not that big of the deal (for as long as they are not horrible).

And for most of you guys. If you want touch and other things like this you're not the target.
Look at the 1100 (the best sold phone in the world), I bet you said that's ugly and nobody will buy it and that Nokia sucks.

every phone has his designed target.

My father would love this phone. It's exactly what he wants from a phone. Simple, elegant, you can talk on it and send SMS. He doesn't care about stuff like touch or wifi or bluetooth etc. I don't think he ever used it on his current phone. He doesn't even care that much about the camera, although he does take picture with in from time to time.
Most of the people just want o simple phone with simple settings.

Touch is awesome, or at least it look, but as someone already said you don't have a feedback. I've just realized that I might miss this features in my new touchscreen phone which should arrive in 1-2weeks. I'm used to drive and text without looking at the screen. I know where the buttons are and how many times I have to press for a letter (I hate t9).
so if you don't like it, don't buy it, this is not a business phone, a multimedia one, a high end one, this is entry level for regular people which just need a phone.

nokia c5 is a phone that should be more apreciated cuz this kinda phones showld be in everybodys pokets...We should get rid of old phones like s40 or touchwiz and head up to symbian,maemo,blackberry and other true phones operating systems...

Only a person who can't afford a symbian phone would say something like that@max-montenegro

U know,I really like Nokia.. But I just wish they would start focusing more on their design.. This phone has not bad features,n if it's cheap then even better.. But the design is just atrocious.. Most Nokia phones have less appealing designs,n some are downright ugly..
Compared to other makers.. Samsung and maybe SE has the best design I think,but theyre also not perfect.. Oh well..

  • max-montenegro

i'm compleetly agree with xman,s40 is rellaible and easy to use,no must make candybar with min.2,6 inch oled display,and 8mpx carl zeis optic,keypad like e52,3,5mm earphones,symbian sucs!s40rulles!

Man in black, 05 Feb 2010Great little phone from Nokia. Low cost, feature rich with ... moreif 6230 & 6300 are such great phones, why not simply continue to make them? I doubt the target users of C5 really cares the differences between these phones....they only make / receive calls & text. They can survive "without" S40.

But does that mean it should release such so called "new" phone when it could of further lower the prices of 6300 (or other 6-series) which should have the specs most people would need? Why need "smart" OS when most only call / text? Would price be dropped further without such "new" features?
