With all the news about the N9 and leaked Belle prototype units the news about an improved C5-00 has passed us by a bit. Nokia didn’t really make a whole load of fuss about it either since it was quitly launched through their press channel.
However the way this new and improved C5 came into the world doesn’t matter, what does matter is the C5 itself.
- Improved camera, 3.2MP to 5MP. (Still an EDoF unit though)
- A bump in internal memory from 50MB to 270MB
- More RAM, now 256MB instead of 128MB
- Runs Symbian S60v3.2
Eventhough it’s a device most of our readers won’t jump out of their seats for, it is a rather compelling device. Styled in an modest way, comes with OVI Maps 3.4 (or Nokia Maps whatever you want to call it) and thus lifetime free navigation and with the uprated RAM and internal memory it’s a much more flexibile device that can last at least a couple of years.
So if calling and SMS is your priority and you want just a little bit extra, then the C5 is a real contender.
