Nokia’s cheap-as-chips blower, the C3-01, is now up for grabs SIM-free from the Nokia online shop for £159.
Combining a hardware keypad and touchscreen, its offering the best of both worlds when it comes to texting, typing and browsing the web and menus across both control methods.
Elsewhere the handset is sporting a 5MP camera with Full Focus, microSD for 32GB worth of memory expansion, Flash Lite and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. There is also support for quad-band GSM, quad-band WCDMA, HSPA and WLAN networks.
“We continue to innovate across our portfolio, making technologies from our high end smartphones available to consumers at lower price points. The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type brings great value and functionality at an affordable price”, Sami Lehtinen, Group Manager, Nokia UK, said.
2 year contract deals are also available from T-Mobile (£15pm), Vodafone (£20pm) and O2 (£25pm).
