Press Release from Nokia (cheers Jack!). I didn’t realise the C5-03 wasn’t already on sale in the UK. The C5-03 is the sleek Symbian^1 cousin of the Nokia 5800. Why Not S^3? I would have said price. I think in the long run, the C6-01 is a better investment. You get HD video recording with the C6-01, plus a capacitive CBD AMOLED display and Symbian^3 app compatibility.
Although the superior C6-01 is not that far off at £225 on pay and go (unlocked at £279), it is understandable that budgets may not be flexible.
The C5-03 is £189 unlocked, no unlock price – possibly £130 pay and go?
A video review from PhoneArena is included.
