Nokia C6 Firmware Ported To 5800

The Nokia 5800 was the first Symbian S60 v5 based phone from the Finnish giant. Nokia was heavily criticized for the clunky and out-dated S60 v5 UI. However, the 5800Nokia C6 sold like hot cakes all over the world, and still does, thanks to its irresistible price and features like Free Walk and Drive navigation. Due to its popularity, the handset is also very popular among the modding/developer community. Custom firmwares for the 5800 were out for quite some time now.

However, the folks behind PNHT have now managed to port the Nokia C6 firmware over to the 5800. Except for a few differences including the side slide-out QWERTY keyboard on the C6, the internals of both the phones like Processor speed, RAM are totally identical. Users who are interested in installing the Nokia C6 firmware on their phone can check this thread over at PNHT forums.

The Nokia C6 firmware is also compatible with the Nokia 5530. Kudos to the folks at PNHT for their hard work!

Nokia C6-01 Details Surface

The Nokia C6 still has not been launched in many countries and Nokia is already working on its successor. GSMArena reports that the C6 has got a successor in the form of the Nokia C6-01. The C6-01 will feature an 8MPNokia C6-01 autofocus camera at its back, along with a dual-LED flash. Along with this, the back cover of the phone has been redesigned.

Apart from the above said changes, the C6-01 is similar to the Nokia C6 in all respects. It will still be running the old and out-dated Symbian^1 (S60v5). I wonder why Nokia is working on a C6 successor when the handset still has not been launched worldwide. Also just an upgraded camera and a redesigned back cover don’t make the C6-01 a worthy successor to the C6.

Even though no information about the RAM and the processor used in the C6-01 is available, I hope Nokia upgrades them. Otherwise, I would suggest readers not to buy this phone.
