Nokia hots up the 'social networking' phones market with C5

Nokia has finally unveiled the Nokia C5, a smartphone optimized for social networking and sharing in the Indian market. The compact device includes access to Nokia’s range of mobile services, such as free navigation, in one affordable package, with a price tag of Rs 7999.

With direct access to favorite contacts on the device homescreen and Facebook status updates visible from the phonebook, the Nokia C5 keeps people connected with the ones who matter the most. Accessing social networking sites, such as Facebook and MySpace, is fast and easy, while instant messaging and email accounts from Ovi Mail and other email providers are available through Nokia Messaging. Loaded with a 3.2 megapixel camera, a 2GB memory card that comes in-box and high speed data connection for effortless uploading of photos and videos to various online communities, the Nokia C5 delivers an outstanding sharing experience.

The Nokia C5 also offers the latest version of Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation, including location sharing with Facebook friends. The Nokia C5 also provides fast web browsing, allowing easy access to favorite Internet sites, Ovi Music*) and a range of applications through the Ovi Store. The new Cseries represents the core of Nokia portfolio, focusing on social interaction between friends and family.

Other key features include front-facing VGA camera, Class 32 GPRS and EDGE, FM radio, 3G support, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP and microUSB 2.0 port.

After Samsung, Micromax, INQ and LG, Nokia has finally made an attempt to integrate social networking into a handset. Being the market leader, we can be rest assured that the market is now going to hot up.

What do you think of the C5? Do you think it will be better than the currently available handsets in India.


  1. Its just a phone and not a smartphone , a shit , i hate nokia throwing cheap devices in indian market and selling the good ones to US and other markets
    We get them when they loose their “hot ” tag

  2. I am a by-stander on all this new social media stuff. I personally think many (most) of the social networking sites are a waste of time. Worse than that, I can’t help but think someone… somewhere is gathering a whole lot of information about us for whatever reason.

    I think I’ll just wait and watch to see what happens. FB has had so many security warnings it should be a read flag to many.

  3. I don’t know why the Nokia C5 integrated Myspace. They are a thing of the
    past. They would have been better off putting Twitter along with Facebook instead.
