    They should put S^3 on it.

      I guess the specs are not good enough for S^3, this one will be positioned under C6-01 with a 50-70€ (70-100$) lower price tag.

      Agreed, completly kill v5 for touch phones. Unless they made some tweaks to v5 so that is behaves in a more S3 like manner.

        I too was utterly disappointed to read about S60V5. Though I had been expecting it.

    Yes I think Nokia should not release any new S60 5th edition phones.After the introduction of S^3 there is no reason for Nokia to again release a phone running the already unpopular S60 5th ed.
    If Nokia want to release a budget or mid range phone they have the capable S40 touch in their stable which I think is more intuitive than S60 5th ed.
    Also people buying phones in the the budget category dont care if the phone is running an OS or not.

      “Also people buying phones in the the budget category dont care if the phone is running an OS or not.”

      What? So they just want the phone, with nothing installed on it?

      Among other limits, S40 is not full touch, has no multitasking, has no access to Qt apps, is java-based and therefore third-party apps are slow to start.

      This phone is for people who want a full-touch phone but can’t afford Symbian^3-class hardware, or don’t care at all about which OS is running on their phones. In both cases, they’re better off with Symbian^1 than with S40.

        On the other hand, I’m disappointed that this thing doesn’t run Symbian^3 anyway – when they said Nokia was keeping Symbian to power their lower-end smartphones, I thought they were talking about the *latest version* of Symbian.

        Now they’re keeping Symbian^1 alive as well? Aren’t they maintaining already too many operating systems? And with Symbian^4 arriving in 6 months to further complicate the landscape?

        Also, while the phone has a nice hardware design, won’t buyers be disappointed when they find out that it’s matched by an outdated software design (I mean, they need to tap menu items twice and so on)? S^1 was great for the 5800, but I believe that 2011 is time to leave it behind.

          You haven’t used a S^1 phone with the latest phone have you???
          “tap menu items twice and so on”
          All S60v5 phones have been updated to S^1 which refers to Nokia’s 2010 touch devices with completed up to date firmware and none of that annoying double tap stuff. They also have universal kinetic scrolling. I believe the Nokia 5530 was the last to be updated to S^1 and that happened in June (i think) via firmware upgrade.

            You’re right, I tried the C5-03 via RDA and it doesn’t need double taps in builtin applications.

            My 5800 still does require double taps on submenu items. I guess I’m missing some firmware upgrade.

    I am also trying to state the same point.Granted that S40 isnt as capable as S60 5th ed and it cant install apps other than that witten in java but certainly there are many people who just want a phone with a fuss free touchscreen experience and which we all know 5th ed cant provide.
    Just look at Samsung’s corby series it is far more popular than Nokia’s S60 5th ed phones among the teens atleast in my country India.
    Hence I think that it is best for Nokia to target the teen market with these cheap S40 touch and type devices which certainly provide a more snappy and intuitive user experience than S60 5th phones and provide them with the advantage of T9 keyboard alongwith a good touchscreen.

    And for the more powerful users there is always S^3.Hence I see no point for Nokia to release S60 5th ed devices from this point of time.

    I think this phone was developed in parallel with S^3 phones. In a long run, I don’t believe Nokia would intend to maintain S60V5 anymore although it may not disappear or die so soon or so fast.

    it is the economist phone for all user and it is easy to effort

    Nokia needs a new phone with a nice design at the low end of the touchscreen market. They don’t have feature/dumbphones which can do that with the closed being the X3-02 and C3-01 but they appear to be niche markets. Also, anyone else thinking that Nokia might release a touch version of the C3-00, possibly at the same time as a E6-00 release in the same form factor, also with a touchscreen.
    The C5-03 will provide it the new design needed at the low end to keep customers away from Corby phones and other cheap touchscreen phones. The other designs are getting old and soon production will stop. A new phone was needed for S^1 and it was know or never. Apps will continue to be made for S^1 with 5000 already in existence on the Ovi Store and more on forums. Not all developers have switched over to Qt and still use the old system to develop apps. Also, thanks to S^3 being a bridge (or more a gateway, link between two different things) between S^1 and S^4, support for S^1 will continue for at least another 2 years and this is the phone that will last for the next two years. Production of the 5800 should soon cease, probably at the end of the year, probably at the same time as the 5530. By mid-next year, doubt there would be too many S^1 devices on the market. If Nokia doesn’t release anymore than they already have, they will have, in my opinion, only the C6-00, C5-03 and 5250 selling mid-next year covering all the bases.
    Also, why did they skip X3-01 and C5-02. (For those would don’t know, the C5-01 is the slightly modified better (but ugly) version of the C5 running on CDMA networks in China.) Are the X3-01 and C5-02 also Chinese devices or what???

    Also, ATTENTION ADMIN: This device has a 600 mHz processor which should make it faster than the other S^1 devices. Also go to 1:50 in the video and you will see that ovi maps is similar in appearance to S^3 with smaller buttons on the right hand-side of the screen and the disappearance of the usual, annoying ones on other S^1 devices which take up more than 1/3 of the screen.

      Correction: There is a X3-01. The X3-01 is a upgraded version of the X2-00 made especially for China Mobile, just like the C5-01 is made especially for China Mobile.

    Can anyone please provide pictures or links to X3-01 and C5-02? Searched it on Google but can’t find them. I just wanna see how they look like. Thanks.
