Nokia finally announces dual-SIM handsets

7 Jun

Nokia is all geared up to finally make its debut in the dual-SIM handset space. The Finnish vendor has unveiled its new C-series range of low-cost handsets comprising of two dual-SIM models and two other phones promising six weeks of battery standby time. The Nokia C1-00 and the Nokia C2-00 are both dual-SIM phones but with two major differences. The former model will operate only one SIM at a time and promises six weeks of battery standby time whereas the latter model can operate both the SIM cards simultaneously but won’t provide the same battery back-up time. The Nokia C1-00 will offer basic features such as flashlight, FM Radio and headphone jack whereas the Nokia C2-00 will offer multimedia features like music player, VGA Camera, headphone jack, FM Radio, expandable memory up to 32 GB and OVI mail.

Other models in the C-series range are the Nokia C1-01 and the Nokia C1-02. Both the phones offer colour display, FM radio, headphone jack, GPRS connectivity and support for a 32 GB microSD card. The Nokia C1-01 will also feature a VGA camera with video recording.

The Nokia C1-00 is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2010, the Nokia C1-01 in the fourth quarter and the Nokia C1-02 and Nokia C2-00 towards the end of the fourth quarter 2010.

    Probably C1 – 02 will be a “hit” just like NOKIA 3310 and NOKIA 1100 but I hate NOKIA’s strategy of announcing sets and releasing in market after 8 months actually; in India. why can’t they just bring handsets in market after 1 month of launching?
