Nokia have announced they are adding another smartphone to their C5 series, which goes by the name of the C5-03. It’s a Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition) running touchscreen smartphone Nokia C5-03 for the budget conscious folks.
Nokia C5-03 is a mobile phone weighing 93 grams that comes with 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, and GPS. In addition, it has nHD resistive touch screen (360×640 pixels). The advantage to consider is the GPS feature on-board integrated with OviMaps complete with voice navigation. Connectivity is also very qualified. Nokia C5-03 offers the ability quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE and tri-band HSDPA 3G data speed (10.2 Mbps) and HSUPA (2Mbps). This speed is even faster than the snapper-end smartphones like the iPhone 4, Samsung S Galaxy, HTC Desire, until the BlackBerry Torch though. Unfortunately, the battery capacity is limited, only 1000mAh. But, Nokia claimed it could last up to 11.5 hours talk time and 35 hours non-stop music playback (19.5 hours if you use a Bluetooth headset).
Under the hood lies 600MHz ARM11 microarchitecture based processor with 128MB SDRAM and 256MB ROM memory. Together, all three are good enough to run the Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition) operating system smoothly. However, users will get a mere 40MB onboard memory storage but a 2GB microSD card will be bundled with the phone. Plus, you can add up to 16GB microSD card via expansion slot.
Music aficionados can enjoy their favorite music as well as videos in different audio and video formals by connecting headphones through the 3.5 mm audio port. This phone will have Stereo FM Radio. One can find latest free version of Ovi Maps hands-free navigation that can be used with the digital compass and location services will be supported by the built-in Assisted-GPS (A-GPS) feature. Nokia has also added Ovi Mail and Ovi Store access for users.
Nokia have also confirmed that the handset will be launching globally at the end of the year, and will feature a price-tag of €170 (around £150) before taxes
