Nokia's Netherlands web site is the only place to find info on the C6-01

A leaked photograph of the Nokia C6-01 has been taken, and the only difference between this model and the plain 'ol C6 is that while the latter device has a 5MP camera with one LED flash, the former has an 8MP shooter with AF and duel-LED flash. The C6-01 is powered by S60 5th edition and comes equipped with a 3.2 inch screen with resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. A Wi-Fi radio is on board and if you're in an area without the service, the C6-01 has HSPA connectivity to 3G networks. For the messaging set, there is a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. The device will be available in white or black without a contract for 279 EUR, which is equivalent to $361.70 USD. That price is 59 EUR more than the original C6, which gives you an idea how much Nokia values the difference between the two cameras. Also, the back of the two models is different as you can see from the picture below. The C6-01 appeared in the Nokia Netherland's web site without a single word in a press release, not a great way to promote a new phone.

So boring, but still #1 in the world. Guess it's not as boring as you thought.

Nokia's low to mid-range phones are number one in the world. Their smartphones...not so much. Look at the growth of Android handsets. Have you owned an android phone and then owned a media centric nokia smartphone? The difference is night and day man. I bought the n900 for a ridiculously high when it first came out. I had it for a couple of months and yes it was a good phone. But it took Nokia forever to come out with updates for the device. Look at android, froyo isn't even on all devices, and Google's already working on a 3.0 update. The N900, after coming out in November, still doesn't have a basic portrait view throughout the entire interface of the phone. It's thick as a brick, and doesn't even sync over the air with nokia's OWN OVI SERVICE! It's ridiculous that Nokia doesn't even provide support with their own awesome phones. Symbian is older than the bible, and yes, a few years ago it was great, and yes it TECHNICALLY still does all the things modern smartphones do, and did more than the iPhone when it first came out. But now, newer mobile OS's have caught up to Symbian and do what it did better, faster, more efficiently, with less headache, and, at the more superficial, it does it prettier. One thing I do give to Nokia is that their low range phones are great, the dual sim C2-00 is a great basic phone. But their high end line up is in shambles, they're just riding the coat tails of their more dominant years and if they don't do something drastic, then they will be swept up by Android and the iPhone.

Pls correct the labeling on the back of c6: it reads c6-01.
