A few months ago, Nokia launched C3-01 handset to the vast global handset market, apparently, it has also re-launched the same C3-01 handset but with a twist. The new Nokia C3-01 Gold edition is built with 18-carat gold plating same amount found on Nokia Oro Luxury Smart Phone with a more enhanced processor speed than Nokia C3-01. Gauging from this development, it looks like Nokia is now trying its gamble on un exploited luxury phone market; if you like class, a distinct identity with much treasure in mobile devices, then perhaps the new Nokia C3-01 is your perfect companion.
I would first start by appreciating an enhanced 1GHz processor speed and a unique pleasant ceramic feel keyboard with a matching theme which puts Nokia C3-01 above board. It is not clear yet whether Nokia will be updating the processor on previous version of C3-01; however, the Gold edition which has started retailing in most parts of Eastern Europe and Asia is already confirmed to have a 1GHz processor. Although it runs on Nokia’s version of Symbian 40 software rather than Anna or the latest Symbian version Belle, Nokia C3-01 has its target market set straight with a clear vision and strategy.
If you thought 18 carat Gold plating was the major selling point for this device, you might as well think twice considering other specifications found on Nokia C3-01 such as a 5.0-megapixel camera commonly on high end devices. In addition, it has a 2.4 inch QVGA resistive touch screen and supports 3G networks to offer fast internet connection speed. If you intend to pimp your Gold Nokia C3-01 device, you might consider getting an external MicroSD card of up to 32GB supported by this device.
