Nokia C6-01 First Clear Black Display phone starts shipping today! (Another addition to Symbian^3 line up)

November 4, 2010 75 comments

The cute little Nokia C6-01, undoubtedly will be another best seller for Nokia like the 5800 starts shipping today! It’s powered by Symbian^3 and under the hood shares the same processor and GPU as its bigger brothers N8 and C7. However, like the Biiiiiiig E7, it has a truly brilliant screen – clear black display – true blacks, high contrast, high saturation that’s comparable and some would say better than Super AMOLED. Even Engadget says it’s glorious.

From Nokia Conversations:

The new Nokia C6 is the smallest and most affordable of the new family of Symbian devices. The C6-01 measures 103.8 x 52.5 x 13.9mm and weighs in at just 131g. Like its siblings, it’s a fully functional communicator with support for 3G and WiFi on board. It’s got a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touch-screen featuring the new ClearBlack display technology for the first time (more about that in a later post). The C6-01 is also one of Nokia’s greenest devices to date, featuring the use of bioplastics and recycled metals for much of its construction.

It doesn’t skimp on multimedia, either, with an eight-megapixel full focus camera with dual-LED flash. The camera’s also capable of shooting 720p high-definition video. The usable internal memory (340MB) is probably a tad tight for that, but can be souped-up with a microSD memory card for over 32GB of storage. There’s a 2GB card to get you started in the box. Like all the recent devices, it comes with free navigation through Ovi Maps, extra apps from Ovi Store and tunes from Ovi Music.

“The Nokia C6-01 is designed for the consumer who wants to stay on top of their social life while on the go,” said Jo Harlow, head of smartphones. “The new Symbian platform makes social networking fast and easy, while from the design point of view the Nokia C6-01 fits perfectly in your palm. Even the smallest of hands can reach every corner of the screen!”

Thanks to Keith for the heads up to!

WordPress For Symbian^3 impressions by @dani2xll (via Nokia N8)

The Nokia Symbian Browser leaves much to be desired at times. That’s why Nokia N900’s Maemo 5 and MicroB was such a revelation as I could access sites like and blog pretty much how I would on a PC. Not so much on Symbian. I’ve not really had that much fun either with wordpress apps and have just not followed its development.

@dani2xll takes another look at the wordpress App for Symbian^3 (download easily from Ovi Store) and well, colour me surprised. It doesn’t look half bad actually.

I’ve still to test it myself but it looks much more functional that early versions I’ve used.

There are, interestingly a lot of Off-post controls; stats, comments, pages and the likes. The most important thing however is being able to produce a blog post on the fly. Something I always felt comfortable on the N900. How does wordpress app fare on Symbian^3?

Post title, main description box with options for photos. I’m not sure I’ll have the same flexibility with Maemo 5’s in browser wordpress experience but it’s better than nothing. Dani notes some freezing problems, “Alternately either the N8 would freeze with the WordPress application open, or the WordPress application would open and then freeze when I tried to access this post, either to edit it or view it. I have deleted the application and re-installed with no effect and I have also tried a newer version which is not yet in the Ovi Store, all without success.”

Anyone reckons the upcoming browser will be able to handle wordpress like MicroB? (As promised by Nokia that it would be as good as ANY other mobile browser)

Video: Nokia X3-02 Touch And Type TV Commercial (Philippines)

November 4, 2010 8 comments

Below is a TV commercial for the X3-02 Touch and Type in the (Republic of the) Philippines

Oddly the C6 is there at the end which is also technically touch AND type like all the QWERTY touch hybrids – though possibly not as intended for the hybrid input as these budget versions.
