Description

Nokia C6 positions itself significantly higher in the hierarchy of devices, sporting a 16:9 3.2" touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY. Other hardware goodies that have found their way onto the C6's body include a 5MP camera with flash and autofocus, Wi-Fi, GPS and 3.5mm jack. It is, of course, powered by Symbian^1 (S60), so nothing new under the sun here. Not surprisingly, users will have access to a plethora of Ovi services, including Store, Music, Chat and Mail.

Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
