Nokia World 2010 live coverage: Nokia E7, C7, C6, N8, C3
Last of the three newly announced phones is the Nokia C6-01 (not to be confused with the C6-00). It's shorter than the C7 - 103.8mm vs. 117.3 mm. The screen size has been reduced - 3.2" AMOLED touchscreen with nHD resolution using the same ClearBlack technology as the E7.
The Nokia C6-01 boasts the same camera and connectivity features as the C7 (sans TV-out) and its 8GB built-in memory is extended by a 2GB microSD card in the box. It too has a stainless steel body though it's quite a bit thicker than the C7 - 13.9 mm.
The Nokia C6-01 is the cheapest of the bunch, it is expected to cost 260 euro (334 USD).
Nokia C6-01 hands-on
Nokia C6-01 certainly isn't the most interesting of the bunch announced today but from where we stand it might be the one with the best prospects on the market. Bringing the nicely looking 3.2" ClearBlack AMOLED screen at a lower price is a feat that might make quite a lot of people consider it when picking their next phone.
And the contrasty display (which is also smaller so the nHD resolution looks perfectly acceptable) isn't the only thing that C6-01 puts to the table. We are huge fans on the extensive usage of metal for its body, which is not something we often see in this price range. And the fact that recycled materials have been used will be music to the environmentalists' hearts.
Finally, and probably most important, the Nokia C6-01 brings a performance identical to the more expensive C7 and even the E7. Symbian might not be the flashiest OS out there but it is certainly one of the most functional and now that its latest ^3 reincarnation addresses most of the user-friendliness issues things start to look better and better for the C6-01.
