Nokia announces three new messaging focused phones

It has been pretty quiet in the Nokia world lately so I was quite happy to see today’s announcement for three new devices, the C3, C6, and E5. All three are focused on messaging and social networking with competitive prices too. I know that my own life is focused on messaging and social networking and am glad to see more Nokia devices focused in this area.

Nokia C3

The Nokia C3 is the first Series 40 QWERTY keyboard device. You can also access social networks right from the homescreen. The price is estimated to be EUR 90. Specs include the following:

  • 2 megapixel camera
  • 2.4 inch color display
  • microSD card slot with support up to 8GB
  • WiFi radio

The C3 should be out soon in three colors, golden white, slate grey, and hot pink.

Nokia C6

The Nokia C6 is a Symbian S60 5th Edition device with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and large display. Specs of the C6 include:

  • 3.2 inch touch screen
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • FM radio

The Nokia C6 is also due out in the 2nd quarter of 2010 with a price of EUR 220.

Nokia E5

This is the device that personally appeals to me since I was a big fan of the Nokia E71. The Nokia E5 is also a Symbian S60 3rd Edition device and it has a front facing QWERTY. The stated battery life is 18 hours and 30 minutes of talk time and 29 days of standby time so you shouldn’t have to charge very often.

Specs include:

  • 2.4 inch display
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • microSD card slot
  • 250MB of onboard memory
  • Five colors; carbon black, chalk white, sky blue, copper brown, silver gray

It should be out in the third quarter of 2010 for a price of EUR 180.
