Nokia C5-03 to breathe new life into Symbian^1?
Just when we thought that Noka has pulled the plug on Symbian^1 and is to devote all its time and effort to the actually not that novel Symbian^3, we were once again proved wrong by the Finns. The still dominating cell phone manufacturer has just come up with a blazing new handset – the Nokia C5-03 – which will not only bear a sense of nostalgia due to its Symbian^1 (or S60 5th Edition) OS, but also because of its resistive 3.2-inch touchscreen. Good gracious, we though these went extinct a long time ago!

As you see, the C5-03 has nothing to do with the C5, which relies on the standard candybar form instead. Anyway, the new handset will still be quite functional, as it will pack tri-band 3G (900/1900/2100), Wi-Fi, 5-megapixel camera, standard microUSB port, as well as a standard 3.5mm jack and microSDHC slot. Quite the feature set for an affordable touchscreen phone. Oh yeah, it also sports a GPS that will allow you to use the Nokia C5-03 for free voice-guided directions with OVI Maps.

The handset is to become available at the end of this quarter (in time for the Holidays, we would say), at an estimated price of about $240 (EUR 170) before taxes and subsidies. You will be able to take your pick from a number of color variants, as seen on the images.

So, does the Nokia C5-03 manage to get you excited, or you'd rather wait for the C6-01? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
