Nokia C3, C6 & E5 phones unveiled

Nokia has showcased three new social networking phones as part of its E and C Series range of mobiles.

Full QWERTY keypads are a notable feature of each new phone, allowing tweeting, blogging and status updates to be rattled off quickly.

The entry level C3 is going to cost about £90, according to sources online. Various Ovi services are pre-installed to make setting up email and instant messaging as simple as possible.

With a 2.4 inch screen and a two megapixel camera the C3 does not sound too capable, but it does have Wi-Fi connectivity to keep down the cost of getting online.

The 3.2 inch touchscreen display of the C6, along with its Symbian operating system, mark it out as a more interesting mobile phone.

It will cost more than twice as much as the C3 and should be in shops before the summer arrives.

The E5 joins the other business-based mobiles in the current E Series line-up. It supports Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange for push email support and should arrive in the Autumn, costing a little under £200.

"People want the best messaging and social networking experience on an affordable device, whether it's sending a simple text or instant message, an email, or a direct message from their Twitter account. The Nokia C3, Nokia C6 and Nokia E5 are made for just that", said Nokia's Anssi Vanjoki.
