I am working in Nokia and I too worked in the manufacturing and designing team of Nokia Core 1-02 handset. This phone features the advanced S40 6th edition (Lite) Operating System specially designed for Nokia C-1 series phones.The processor used in this phone is ARM 9 processor which is found in almost all budget models from Nokia. But friends please don't go for C1-02 Black and Cool Grey models because the processor used on board is ARM 7 processor which is different from the other two colors, Purple and Blue. So in the testing schedule the Cool Grey and Black phones lacks the optimum performance which slow down all the basic operations of this device including Bluetooth. So beware Nokia fans. Please don't go for C1-02 Black and Grey colors, though they are beautiful. Also Nokia is planning to launch the 256 K color display of the same model with advanced features such as Edge (Class B) and with integrated data modem to connect to PC's to access internet on the move. The management has code name this upcoming model as Nokia C1-07 which will hit the market in the second quarter of 2011. So if you are looking for an advanced Nokia with basic features, please don't go for this model and wait until C1-07 will launch.
Hats off Nokia for such a wonderful basic model C1 series rocks...
Friends, This phone has BlueTooth without Camera. Most of the IT company employee need this phone as camera not allowed inside the office.
Also this is one of my most awaited phone. Because i wanted for Blutooth phone without camera. Blue Tooth i wanted to pair in my car audio system. As someone said in this discussed nokia always delay their release. Yes you're right. Samsung release nice phone this month with good design and has extra feature.
I will still wait to get high end mobile without camera.
This phone is not Dual sim and doesnt have a camera. The only advantage of this phone compared to c1-00 is its music player app and better OS. It supports a micro sd making this an below average mp3 player, i am a bit doubtful for its music quality compared to other players
will be getting this phone for its mp3/radio function and no camera as a spare phone since camera phones are not allowed inside my workstation.
enden, 08 Sep 2010yes i am absolutely right,coz i know the reasons behind the success of 3210,3310,8310 so ma... moreThats True, nearly all Nokia's low end Models looks like same...and there are reducing the quality to match the price point....and that is where brands like Samsung and Micromax are delivering well market...like for example couple of days back and Micromax have launched Q75 which has all Nokia e series features @ just 4700 (wifi)rs and in upper end Samsung Galaxy, Omnia and Wave are ruling smartphone market.

reasons behind the success of 3210,3310,8310
so many others nokia model.
here in the phil,times of 3310 almost all
pinoy are looking just one brand thats nokia.
why because in nokia you can almost change everything
casing,backlights plus our service provider here
only support nokia for ringtones and graphics.
but now battle is not just that.
NOKIA seems fighting only with offence but no defense
at all.competing only the price but you sacrifice the quality still nothing you can gain.
for nokia to able to stay on top
you have fight every point,every department.
just what other brand did.
it is just my suggestion about samsung shortcut
system,if it is not patented why not dot it?
[deleted post]* Rizman, you are probably right. Here at Nokia we actually have listed the Micromax X1i+ as a competitor model to this device. Also suggested to the Nokia product team to add features like dual sim, dual standby, flashlight, theft tracker and a bigger battery. But you know what they just wont listen to people....
enden, 07 Sep 2010most people today already have know how
regarding phone quality.

The quality of a Nokia vaires a lot depending on the device. eg : the nokia 2323 was of really poor quality. Also the Nokia 6303i had a really poor camera compared to the Nokia 6303 which it was replacing.
Nokia lost the smartphone marked already by not switching over to Andriod. Now the recent sales analysis show they are loosing the mid segment market.
The only place they are really strong is the ultra low segment below Rs 2500 phones, but I really doubt how long it will stay that way.
tell me about dual sim how it's work ..
can both sim work same time or not

regarding phone quality.
here in th phil,mostly of pinoy no.1 option
in buying phones is nokia,but others will buy
samsung like me (samsung M-150) instead.
beacause of these reasons
1.speed, S m-150 compare to other nokia in these level is faster.
3.keypad design,people who use basic phone
most often uses text than call
thats why theyre looking a phone with good keypad.
4.samsung O.S theres a lot of shortcut maybe you already know,people like it
but M-150 price 3900 to 4100 peso
nokia 3500 to 4000
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2010peoples this mobile cost 2k, c101 cost 1800 , this has been officially announced..where is it officially announced and shouldn't the C1-02 be cheaper than the C1-01 as the C1-02 does not have a camera. The price will be approx Indian Rs 2,400 for the C1-02.

This phone needs to cost below Indian Rs 2,500 (Decided by the product management team). Adding what u would like, would make it around Indian Rs 3,500. Which is pretty high for a phone without a camera and little more than basic functionality.
It would be slightly more expensive than the C1-01 which comes with a VGA camera !

can afford that price.price range from 4000

i like nokia man.
Great Jiet, 05 Sep 2010Look is not good otherwise good cell* Great Jiet, have tested this device with a sample unit from Nokia its actually looks great and has a sturdy build to it.
[deleted post]* Dhaval.S, will be available in the stores before end of Nov 2010

So they probably will not change the processor. For your info the C1-02 will run on the ARM-9X processor family (220 MHZ) which supports Basic S40 OS. The other higher devices with 240x320 pix display have a ARM-11 (369 MHZ) processor. The price difference between the 2 processors is about India Rs 1,200.
* san san No hard feelings but nokia has no plans for a device in the near future with your specifications.
everything is ok... When does the release of this phone going to happen... As said it will be hitting the indian market in 2010, but not yet the said thing has happened?

all of my friends realy like the look
but when they know the specs they turn
