Nokia C5-03 receives its FCC approval, but lacks North America 3G support
North America will indeed see one of the latest Symbian touchscreen smartphones in the form of the Nokia C5-03, but unfortunately, there won't be much love when it comes down to data connectivity.

Most recently, the Nokia C50-03 was granted its all important FCC approval which means it'll be available to consumers on our side of the great pond. But as we've come to see time after time, this version won't feature support for North American 3G bands – so expect so lengthy wait times when using the web browser. The handset itself will become available “at the end of this quarter” in Europe for the price of €170 ($240), but there is no indication when exactly it'll hit our shores.

If you've forgotten about this smartphone, it features a 3.2” resistive touchscreen with 360 x 640 resolution, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, aGPS, 3.5mm headset jack, and comes packed with Ovi Maps naturally.
