If you think only Apple can pull out crowds on phone launch days, you’ve got to think again. Nokia launched the C3 QWERTY messenger in Indonesia and pulled out thousands who lined up for hours to pick up their copy of the device.
The full-QWERTY, candybar Nokia C3 sports a 2.4-inch display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, Wi-fi, GPRS/EDGE, 3.5 mm audio jack, MicroSD card slot, Bluetooth and USb connectivity, 2mp camera, Opera Mini web browser, and social network integration.
The device is also out in the UK already and costs 80 pounds without a contract. That’s should put it in the N20,000 – N25,000 bracket. This is the most affordable QWERTY by Nokia yet and is set to be a bestseller.
One thing is predictable, judging by the sales of the E71 and E72 in Nigeria, the C3 will sell by the bucketfull here in our own country.
