A device from the unconfirmed Nokia C2-series portfolio has made an appearance in the form of pictures. Showing off more touch-and-type functionality, the C2-06 is a low end feature phone likely to be aimed at emerging markets.
The C2-06 is reported to be pairing a resistive touch screen with a resolution of 320×240 to a portrait sliding 12 key number pad for input. The device runs Symbian S40 and has a 2 megapixel camera and loudspeaker grille on the back. From current pictures, the device lacks an LED flash but makes up for that with apparent dual SIM functionality. In order to do this, 2 separate GSM radios would be required to keep both lines active at the same time. The C2-06 is said to be quad-band (850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz) and features a 1020mAH battery that is rated at 480 hours of standby time and 300 minutes of talk time.
There is a microUSB port for data transfer and charging, as well as a legacy 2mm Nokia barrel plug and 3.5mm headset jack on the top. The model lacks WiFi, 3G as well as GPS in order to reduce costs and allow for almost 20 days of battery standby. No pricing is available, but judging from the reduced feature set it should be available off-contract for a very respectable price.
