With the Nokia C7 looking like it'll pack Symbian S^3 when released, and MeeGo on the horizon, the Nokia C6 looks like it could be something of a swan song for Symbian S60 on the Nokia's smartphones.
We looked at the Nokia C5 recently, and this certainly has a step up in features to match its higher-numbered name (we'll save the jokes about it being "one higher" for when the C11 comes out).
The C6 is a touchscreen smartphone with a 3.2-inch screen and slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard for good measure. Running on Symbian S60 5th Edition, it's packing 3G HSDPA and Wi-Fi for speedy internet access.
It comes loaded with Nokia's now-standard Ovi features, including Ovi Maps for navigation – which is aided by the integrated A-GPS – and the Ovi store for getting new apps, widgets, ringtones and other sundries.
On the back is a 5MP camera featuring an LED flash, while the front features a small QVGA camera for video calls. The rear camera can also take VGA videos at 30 frames per second.
The Nokia C6 is taking aim at the mid-range smartphone market, coming it an RRP of £299.99, but seemingly available from as little as £229.00 on PAYG. On contract, the handset can be had for free from around £20 per month.
The C6 is available in white or black. In the box, you get the phone and its battery, a micro-USB cable, 2GB SD card, mains charger (Nokia's clever sliding-pin one, which is great for traveling), and earphones with microphone for hands-free talking.
