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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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