After news emerged as to Nokia's plans to hold a major event the day before Apple launches its brand new tablet device and iPhone software update, it has been confirmed by independent sources that the Finnish manufacturer will be unveiling its new C-Series range of semi-smart mobile phones.
Back in 2009 the C and X series mobiles were registered in tandem, but we have already seen the X3 and X6 hit the market, whilst no C-branded mobiles have been forthcoming.
Although Nokia has not given its official stamp to the rumours, they have emanated from several reputable sources and so many are accepting them as being fairly concrete.
Notable sites based in Indonesia displayed the model names C3 and C5 relating to Nokia handsets, before hastily withdrawing them.
In terms of specifications, the current suggestions are that the C3 could be a quad-band phone with Wi-Fi and the C5 will be a cut down version that leaves out Wi-Fi and HSDPA.
These specs sound a little odd, as Nokia typically assigns higher numbers to the more powerful handsets, but time will tell.
