Nokia C6 launch event planned

Nokia C6 launch event planned

The campaign to build interest in the global launch of the Nokia C6 has begun, with a series of press events to highlight the handset's messaging capabilities.

The Nokia C6 is a mid range smartphone with a 3.2-inch display and the traditional Symbian S60 operating system on-board. It will not have the glossy freshness of Symbian 3 available as with the N8, but it should appeal to the international mainstream with its touch sensitive interface and competitive price point.

UK consumers can already pick up the C6 online, but as part of the worldwide release Nokia is holding events today in London, Singapore, India and New York.

Interestingly, the Finnish mobile giant is making its launch special with some form of messaging-based challenges to emphasise the C6's appeal to younger buyers.

Earlier this week it had been thought that the events would mark the official unveiling of the N8 - Nokia's flagship NSeries handset for 2010.

It took a modicum of investigation to discover that the Nokia C6 would be unveiled as opposed to the arguably more exciting N8, but tags on publicity shots of the invites gave fairly clear hints as to Nokia's plans, according to NokNok.
