Nokia has just released their latest touch-driven handset - the C5-03. Packing a distinctly youthful design, the Nokia C5-03 is yet another budget-minded smartphone by the Finnish manufacturer. It also packs great all round connectivity.
Unfortunately, it runs on Symbian S60 5th edition, rather than the newer Symbian^3 OS. It's also looking a bit off the current trends with its resistive touchscreen.
When it was announced, Nokia promised a retail price of 225 US dollars (170 euro) before taxes for the C5-03, while current online offers go at about 290 US dollars. We are assuming that retailers are just charging an early adopters' fee and those prices will go down in time for Christmas, though.
At that point you will be left with an affordable handset with access to the Ovi store and free lifetime voice-guided navigation. Not to mention the wide range of available bright colors, which will be appreciated by the younger crowd.
This is all fine and dandy, but the Nokia device that everyone wants to see released before Christmas is the E7. Let's hope the Finns won't let us down.
