Nokia C5 Now Available
The C5 is Nokia’s first handset in the C series and is aimed at the entry level mobile user.
It’s a solid phone with a specification consisting of a 2.2 inch screen, 3 megapixel camera, 2GB memory (with supporting expansion up to 16GB via SDCard).
The handset is powered by Nokia’s Symbian operating system, and like all the Finnish company’s devices offers users Nokia-based services including Ovi Maps and Ovi Messaging.
You can get the Nokia C5 free on a 2-year contract which starts from as little as £10 per month. At £20 per month you will get 600 minutes and 500 texts over the same 2 year period.
In other Nokia news, the 900 handset has been released and upgraded with MeeGo 1.0, Nokia’s other operating system.
This newer system is based around a system called Myzone which incorporates various social networking, email, and calendar and contact applications. It also supports both Google’s Chrome and Firefox’s Fennec browser.
MeeGo is the result of a merging of technology between Nokia and Intel Corporation’s operating systems, the Moblin and Maemo. The result is a Linux-based software platform which apparently supports a range of devices including mobile computers, net books, tablets, media phones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems as well as mobile phones.
