Here’s GSMARENA’s video unboxing of the Nokia C6, a budget version of the N97 mini (complete with N97 style homescreen) with 4 row, non-tilt slide QWERTY keyboard.
There’s no speaking during the video but you do get an interesting background song made up of phone vibrations.
Despite being S60 5th (S^1) and having ARM 11 434MHz processor, it looks pretty nippy. Look at how fast in switches from landscape to portrait and vice versa. Other operations are hindered more by the S^1 annoyances like inconsistent 1 vs 2 button presses. Photo browsing of larger files now seem to stutter as expectations are raised to buttery smooth zoom panning.
Carphone Warehouse UK still lists the Nokia C6 as coming soon
Nokia Shop has the C6 available for £289. But it’s worth noting buying from Nokia direct is more expensive. E.G. In the UK, the £79.99 Nokia C3 is listed as £119.00, so expect the C6 price to be much cheaper that what Nokia has listed.
