Nokia has announced that another Symbian^3 powered device, following on the heels of the N8 and C7, started shipping today. The Finnish company’s new C6-01 is the smallest (measuring 103.8 x 52.5 x 13.9 mm, weighing 131 g) and the most affordable phone in the Symbian^3 stable.
It boasts support for 3G, Wi-Fi, an eight megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and the ability to shoot HD-ready (720p) video. The C6-01 also sports a 3.2" AMOLED capacitive touch-screen as well as 340 MB of internal storage space with support for microSD memory cards offering up to 32 GB of additional storage. A 2 GB card will be included with the phone.
“The Nokia C6-01 is designed for the consumer who wants to stay on top of their social life while on the go,” said Jo Harlow, head of smartphones. “The new Symbian platform makes social networking fast and easy, while from the design point of view the Nokia C6-01 fits perfectly in your palm. Even the smallest of hands can reach every corner of the screen!”
Nokia’s C6-01 is also one of the company’s greenest mobile phones, as it features the use of bioplastics and recycled metals within its body construction. No word yet on local availability and pricing.
