Nokia has today announced that it’s finally shipping the Dual SIM C2-00 this quarter in markets such as India, China, Africa and Brazil which are developing markets. We got our hands on the phone at CommunicAsia in June 2010 and we don’t know what took Nokia so long to get this phone out in the market when the likes of Micromax and Karbonn churn out new Dual SIM phones every month.
The C2 has a talktime of around 5 hours and a standby time of 19 days. It has one swappable SIM card slot and runs on the Series 40 operating system.
The price of the C2-00 is expected to be 45 Euros before taxes which works out to roughly around Rs.3000. The handset is expected to hit stores along with the X1-01 this quarter. We are not convinced until we really see them at stores.
