Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type review: The missing link

 

Nokia seem to have the missing link in the evolution of mobile phones. The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type is an attempt to bring the best of both worlds. A touch phone in a form factor that's as classic as it gets.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 10Mbps HSDPA and 2Mbps HSUPA ; Neat and well built, slim, light and metal clad ; 2.4" 256K-color resistive TFT QVGA touchscreen ; S40 6th edition UI ; 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera ; VGA video...

Small screen (for a touch phone) ; No multitasking ; No GPS ; Fixed-focus camera ; No smart dialing ; No video-call camera ; No adequate storage out of the box ; No accelerometer sensor ; No document viewer

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type (Unlocked)

 

The Nokia C3-01 is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and quad-band HSDPA 10.2 (850/900/1900/2100) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. That makes it perfect for overseas travel, as the C3-01 can hit high-speed data networks both here and in many other...

Slim and attractive. Aluminum housing looks and feels expensive. Great camera and music player. Low price for an unlocked phone

Earpiece could be louder. Despite its name, this isn't much of a "typing" phone without a QWERTY keyboard. No GPS

Nokia's star has faded in the U.S., but the company is serving up some real unlocked bargains like the Nokia C3-01, a slim and slick voice phone with an excellent camera, music player, and Web browser.

Nokia C3 Touch and Type Review

 

Enter the Nokia C3 Touch and Type. Delivering higher level build quality as found on the Nokia C6-01 and C7 with a stainless steel finish, the Nokia C3 Touch and Type delivers a little something extra to the Touch and Type range...

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type Review

 

Nokia is still serving S's with the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type and there's definitely more to love compared to its close companion the Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type. We decided to make this review short and sweet because the two are relatively the same....

Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type

 

Nokia brings the power of touch to its Series 40 platform in the C3. The C3 takes what's familiar about Nokia and sprinkles it with a dash of newness.

Nokia C3 Touch and Type

 

Nokia have caused some confusion again with their names - the C3 Touch and Type is actually the Nokia C3-01.. the original Nokia C3 (or Nokia C3-00) is a cheap QWERTY messaging phone. The two handsets are very different and will probably be sold...

Nokia C3-01: Average Looking but Feature Rich - Tech2

 

The C3-01 has all the regular features of a good mobile phone, like the X3-02 but has nothing really special to offer.

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type review

 

A low cost handset from Nokia that brings touch to S40 but ultimately disappoints

Great build ; Good number pad ; Customisable Home screen ; Second customisable shortcuts screen

Processor is challenged at times ; No GPS ; Fiddly to use ; Twitter and Facebook integration is poor ; Camera is lacklustre

The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type is a candybar handset with a small screen and a simple numeric keypad. Like its near-namesake the BlackBerry-alike C3-00, the C3-01 Touch and Type is designed to be a low cost, easy to use messaging fan's handset.

Nokia C3 Touch and Type (preview)

 

The C3 Touch and Type is reminiscent of older Nokia phones, but adds the ability to operate the device through a touchscreen.

Stainless steel design, 5-megapixel camera

Remains to be seen whether hybrid design is appealing, no GPS

Nokia C3 Touch and Type

 

The Nokia C3 Touch and Type smartphone has a hybrid design that combines a touchscreen and a traditional 12-button phone keypad.

Stainless steel design, 5-megapixel camera

Remains to be seen whether hybrid design is appealing, no GPS

The Nokia C3 Touch and Type smartphone has a design that is intended to appeal to people familiar with non-touchscreen phones but it also offers a touch interface.
