Nokia C5-03: end of the year, €170, runs Symbian^1 for some reason

Chris Ziegler

Doesn't it seem a little odd for Nokia to be launching any new touchscreen devices on Symbian^1 now that Symbian^3's been loosed courtesy of the N8 and C7? Alas, it looks like there'll be at least one new model running the old code -- in this case, the low-end C5-03. It's got a 3.2-inch display and 5 megapixel camera (no flash) -- and despite what you might be thinking, it does actually manage to pack both WiFi and 3G, pretty amazing for a €170 ($238) unsubsidized full-touchscreen device. Don't suppose we could expect an official firmware upgrade for this bad boy, could we? Look for it to launch at the end of the quarter, which also happens to be the end of the year.
