Nokia C3 Touch and Type to land next month?

September 29th, 2010

It looks like the Nokia C3 Touch and Type may be arriving sooner than we thought, its listing on the Nokia website suggesting it may be released as early as October.

Since it was announced earlier this month at Nokia World 2010, the handset hasn’t appeared on the manufacturers website. Now, the handset has popped up, which usually happens before a phone’s imminent release. The Nokia N8 also looks set to launch next month, so releasing a cheaper option would certainly play a smart move on Nokia’s part.

The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type provides users with an alphanumeric keypad alongside a 2.5 inch touchscreen. The handset is also set to come equipped with 3G and WiFi connectivity, a 5 megapixel camera with flash, social networking widgets and up to 32GB of expandable memory. Nokia also announced the handset would be available in 3 different colours; silver, warm grey and khaki gold. Although not confirmed, we are rumoured to expect a price-tag of around £120.

Nokia are yet to confirm the handsets official release date, although have confirmed it would be available before the end of the year.
