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 don't understand why people hate the OS so much. AND NO, I AIN'T A FANBOY; I OWN A SE AND HAVE DONE SO FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS.

As long as it serves the end-user's needs, the end-user and anybody else do NOT have the right to complain and whine. Why mock the OS; are you going to buy it? As I personally see it, this is a simple phone to meet basic needs. You don't need touch and media centers and pinching touch detection and motion control the rest. As long as it meets a persons requirements (and budgets as well in this case), all's good. So take your complaints elsewhere. Now, if you have some CONSTRUCTIVE comments, I wouldn't mind.

As it stands now though, this could just as well be my next phone.

its really interesting how nokias mid range or now lower end Symbian phones are on sale

a N79 or a N82 has better specs and will cost pretty much the same give or take alittle

Well to me this looks as a very decent no-nonsense phone. Of course it isn't fancy. It isn't intended for an high-end audience.

C means classic a 1650 series was packed by s60 and also all classic phones are cheap

When I first saw the thumbnail pic for this article, I thought it was about my old phone: the I-Mobile 902. Check the 902 out on this site and you'll see... the resemblance is ridiculous... long lost twins.

Nokia hater, 04 Feb 2010Well, well.The same song! The phone's design is awful. It has go... moreMan, we are talking about tastes here. This is something very personal.
This is a simple phone with a simple desin adressed to a specific target. I think Nokia did their homework and they are still searching for a new 1100 :)...a true simple mobile phone upgraded to the most common features the most consumer needs.
Simple, is Nokia :)

  • Series 40 fan

What happens now? No more Series 40? I really hope not. Nokia has proven over time that they can make super phones with series 40. A fine example was the Nokia 6230, 6230i, and 6233. Please Nokia, more high end Series 40 Phones.

Ugly phone and the UI is another disaster

  • Alexander

So, that`s it? The C-series are just some low-end phones? I was expecting more. I tought C is from Camera :( I tought C-series will be high-end phones with great cameras :(

doesnt look good

the UI...doesnt look that good either. i think it's just a facelift from old symbian. which is a shame. :(
