Nokia Launches The C3-01 Gold Edition With 1GHz Processor

Last year, Nokia launched the C3-01 entry-level touchscreen phone. This handset originally runs on the 680 MHz processor and it is powered by the Symbian S40 6th edition Operating System. I have already used this handset for a couple of month and felt that, the phone was over-priced. The display is quite small for a touchscreen phone, the 5 megapixel camera is pathetic and the OS is not even worth mentioning.

Now, after a year, Nokia launched the “Gold Edition” of its not-so-popular Nokia C3-01 entry level touchscreen phone. The are no major changes in the specs of the device, except the fact that, the Nokia C3-01 Gold Edition runs on the powerful 1 GHz processor, instead of the 680 MHz processor.
