Clearly determined to ride the full waves of the QWERTY revolution that has been going on in the mobile sector for the last few years, global market leader Nokia has announced three new devices packing QWERTY keyboards.
The C3 (left) is an S40 device featuring GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no 3G) and surprisingly Wi-fi.
The E5 (middle) is an S60 3rd Edition device featuring GSM/GPRS/EDGE/3G/3.5G, Wi-fi, a 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera with LED flash, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack, among other features. Like the C3, it comes in a block form factor.
The C6 (right) – clearly a move by Nokia to deliver high-end specs on a mid-range device – is an S60 5th Edition device with a side-sliding full QWERTY keyboard featuring GSM/GPRS/EDGE/3G/3.5G, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a 5 mega-pixel camera and a touchscreen.
The C6 is basically an N97 Mini packed in a cheaper casing. As a matter of fact, all three devices offer amazingly low prices for the features they pack, with estimated prices of 90, 180, and 220 Euros respectively.
