Nokia launches three new affordable phones

Nokia announced its new device portfolio with the launch
of three new affordable phones – the Nokia C2-02, Nokia C2-03 and Nokia C2-06.

“These phones all offer a web, maps and messaging
experience second to none in the market. And with the choice of a touch screen
or a keypad, we really have made everything available and easy to use in an
affordable phone that comes in both Dual or single SIM options.” said Mary
McDowell, head of Nokia’s Mobile Phones business unit.

The Nokia C2-03, the third Dual SIM phone Nokia has
brought to market in the past month, comes with Nokia’s unique Dual SIM
capabilities. These include features that allow the user to personalize up to
five SIM cards with a dedicated look and feel, and an Easy Swap option that
lets users change SIM cards in seconds without having to turn off the phone or
remove the battery.

 The Nokia C2-02 is a single SIM version with a
similar feature set, as well as push messaging options and a broad range of IM
providers included, and the Nokia C2-06 comes in a range of fresh colors with a
clean, smooth finish.

The phones all ship with new Nokia Maps for Series 40,
where local maps and places of interest are pre-installed on the phone. This
means users can view maps and plan routes when the phone is in offline mode,
thus saving on the costs of downloading maps over the mobile network.

All three phones also deliver a great internet browsing
experience through the data compression technology of the Nokia Browser, which
keeps the costs of surfing low and speeds up page downloads – benefiting both
consumers and operators. The browser loads with a localized start page, giving
the user instant access to the most relevant content, and is tabbed to give
easy access to favorite or previously viewed information.

“We want the web to be easy to access, fast and
affordable for all. The technology behind the Nokia Browser means that
consumers, especially those new to the mobile internet, can get the information
they need quickly, as the Nokia Browser serves up relevant local content –
making the whole experience more personal and enjoyable,” McDowell added.

The three phones also pack a stereo FM radio, media
player and memory support that can be expanded to a whopping 32 GB, letting
users store thousands of photos, videos and music files.
