Nokia C3 and E5, two new terminals with full physical keyboard
Along with the C6, the other two terminals presented today by the Finnish manufacturer respond to the names of Nokia C3 and Nokia E5. It is clear that the first, the C3, is a little brother to the C6, while the E5 is a radically different mobile.
We will start by talking about the Nokia C3, which with the 2.4-inch screen (320 × 240 pixels) and the keyboard QWERTY Integrated is focused on a young audience that wants access to the Internet and social networks. Curious, but something tells me that it is a device whose purpose is very similar to that of the MS Kin of yesterday, although logically with notable differences.
Nokia C3 focused on social networks and the Internet
And is that the Nokia C3 software, Symbian S40, will include programs and shortcuts to different social networks on the Internet, in addition to a good browser such as Opera Mini. One of the most positive points is that it will include a 1,320 mAh battery. which will provide the mobile with an autonomy of, according to the manufacturer, up to 20 days.
As for storage, we speak 55 internal MB expandable up to 8 GB through MicroSD cards, with WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1 and GPRS. A major flaw that should not occur is that absolutely any terminal in 2010 should be launched with at least a 3G connection, and not the most ancient one GPRS, an old connection and that only the most veteran terminals know.
Nokia C3 is an interesting terminal for users looking for a complete terminal to surf the Internet, use social networks, messaging and the other more traditional functions of a phone. It will be available in the coming weeks in various colors and for a price that Nokia estimates to be around 90 euros already subsidized.

Nokia E5, for professionals and quite powerful
However, the Nokia E5 is radically different. Its main asset is having the Symbian S60 system, which includes accesses, software and cutting functionalities that are much more professional and interesting.
Connectivity HSDPA and HSUPA (10 Mbps download and 2 upload), WiFi, A-GPS, Bluetooth, with 250 MB of internal memory expandable by microSD and a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash LEDThe only but it can have is the screen, only 2.4 inches and with a low resolution, 320 × 240 pixels, although more than enough to read emails and navigate on time.
It is not a device that wants to reinvent the market, something that Nokia seems to have forgotten about for years. Is a ‘E’ Series more, with a slightly different casing and a few changes internally. The software is very similar in the vast majority of functionalities, and there it remains.
Nokia E5 will be available in the third quarter of the year and will be exclusive to the professional market. Its price is still unknown.
