Nokia announced 3 new affordable handsets designed around messaging and social networking – the Nokia C3, Nokia C6, and Nokia E5. I should get a cookie, because that’s what I guessed for the countdown. The C3 and C6 are expected in the 2nd quarter this year for EUR 90 and 220 respectively, while the E5 is expected in the 3rd quarter for EUR 180.
The Nokia C3 is the first device to bring a full QWERTY keyboard to Series 40 and is the first in the range to enable access to social networks directly on the homescreen. It also comes with Ovi Mail and Ovi Chat, meaning first time users can set up email and chat accounts straight from the device, without the need for a PC. Main hardware features include 2.4 inch screen, 2 megapixel camera, Qwerty keyboard, and wifi connectivity. Complete tech specs are available here. It will come in Grey, White, and Pink.

The Nokia E5 is designed for those that want to be productive in both their professional and personal lives. It is a Symbian S60 3rd Edition device that follows the Nokia E72.
