Nokia Announces the C6 and C7 with Symbian^3

Posted by at 8:54 am on September 14, 2010

Nokia World kicked off on Tuesday with the launch of Symbian^3-based smartphones that are key to the company’s turnaround.


The C7 becomes a more affordable alternative to the soon-to-ship N8 and has a smaller 3.5-inch AMOLED display with the use of newly developed ClearBlack Display technology. It’s claimed to provide better visibility in bright sunlight where most OLEDs wash out. The design is also consciously framed as upscale with a stainless steel shell to go with its glass.

The C7 has an eight-megapixel camera and can capture 720p video.

Symbian^3 tries to modernize the   mobile OS with multi-touch, multiple home screens with widgets and unified contacts that support simultaneous updating of social networks. An updated WebKit browser, an easier to use Ovi Store and overall simplified settings also  aid modernizing the platform.

The C7 should be available before the end of 2010 at an unsubsidized price of 335 euros ($430).


A step slightly below it is the C6-01. The second Symbian^3 device has less RAM and a smaller 3.2-inch AMOLED display in a less exotic frame. But Nokia still gives this phone an eight-megapixel camera and 720P video as well, but its pre-discount price drops to 260 euros ($334) for its own end-of-year launch.
