Nokia C6 Smartphone Launched In The UK
Nokia has launched the C6 slider smartphone in the UK for £289 that can be availed directly from its website.
The C6 looks similar to the earlier N900 and sports a full QWERTY keyboard. It bears a nice specs sheet and is powered with Symbian S60. Strangely, Nokia has sidelined its latest Maemo OS.
Maemo was developed by Nokia for smartphones and Internet Tablets, which is based on the Debian Linux distribution.
Nokia C6 comes with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen and incorporates many features like a 5MP camera with Flash, AGPS, 200MB internal memory and microSD card up to 16GB.
The handset will be released on contract through Vodafone, T-Mobile and Carphone Warehouse within the next few days.
Mark Loughran, the managing director of Nokia UK, said, "The Nokia C6 offers style and connectivity. Whether it's via email, the web, social networks or IM, you are always connected."
Nokia will be in stiff competition now as O2 is also offering the HTC Desire for the same price without any contract upgrades. The same phone can be collected for around £319 SIM Free.
