Nokia C6-01 ships to retailers

Nokia C6-01 ships to retailers
Back in mid-September, we got a look at Nokia's C6-01 Symbian^3 device. While it didn't steal the show at Nokia World, the affordable, compact C6-01 has some exciting upgrades from the C6, and should be available from retailers some time next week.

The Nokia Conversations blog announced that "The boxes have been filled, the vans loaded and the factory gates opened." No, there won't be fanboys camping out overnight to get one, but it's certainly worth come consideration.

The C6-01, running Symbian^3, is the cheapest of the new Symbian line. At 4.68 ounces, it's also the lightest. The biggest highlight is its 3.2-inch ClearBack AMOLED display, which will supposedly offer a much more vivid experience than other screens. You can also enjoy 720p video recording via the devices's 8MP camera, and free navigation via Ovi Maps.

There isn't much internal memory to spare (340MB), but it does come with a 2GB card, and is upgradeable to 32GB. Nokia's Jo Harlow focused on the fact that the "new Symbian platform makes social networing fast and easy, while from the design point of view the Nokia C6-01 fits perfectly in your palm."

It's not a headliner, but the C6-01 offers a good balance of attractiveness, functionality, and affordability.
