Nokia Debuts C5 Candybar Smartphone, First C-series Mobile Runs S60 Third Edition

March 2, 2010, By Alex Ion

At this year’s CeBIT tradeshow in Hanover, Germany, the folks from Nokia took the wraps off the first C-series mobile phone, the new Nokia C5. Although the Finnish manufacturer would like to call it a smartphone, despite its features the Nokia C5 isn’t quite there. Speaking of specifications, we’re hearing that the phone has a 2.2-inch non-touchscreen display, 2GB of built-in storage space and that it runs Symbian S60 third edition.

Expandable microSD, a 3.2 megapixel camera, media player, GPS with free Ovi maps with turn by turn navigation, 3G capability, Facebook integration, FM radio, stereo speakers, 3.5 mm audio jack, and Nokia messaging are also available for the C5. On top of that, there’s a powerful battery capable to keep it running for 26 days when in stand-by mode and 12 hours when talking.

With all those features, and a cost of $183 for the unlocked phone, the new Nokia C5 is slated to become a hot seller, and considering that even carriers may decide to throw in a subsidy and reduce that cost further, we may be looking at a winner here.

What do you guys think?
