Nokia C2-03: Touch screen enabled feature phone slider that takes two SIM cards

c203

Earlier today at Nokia Connection 2011 in Singapore the Finnish handset maker announced the N9, one of the most advanced devices they’ve ever built. In addition to that ultra high specced smartphone they also spent a fair amount of time showing off the C2-03, a dumb phone that many of you might roll your eyes at, but will be loved by millions around the world. Now we’ve already seen this thing thanks to a handful of leaks, but today there’s an official spec sheet: the screen size isn’t mentioned, but we do know it’s got a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, can display 65k colors, and is touch enabled, there’s also a 2 megapixel camera in there, support for two SIM cards, one of which can be swapped at anytime without needing to power off the phone, dualband (900/1800 MHz) support, meaning you’re only going to be using this in Europe and Asia, a microSD card slot can handle 32 GB cards, and you can enjoy your music via either the 3.5 mm headphone jack or Bluetooth equipped accessories.

It’s incredibly doubtful that operators are going to sell this handset to their customers since the whole point of having a dual SIM device is to save money on your phone bill. One example: Call person A using one number and person B with another number, because calls on the same network are cheaper. Considering how people buy their devices in the markets where this thing will be sold (India, China, South East Asia, Eurasia, Middle East, and Africa), that’s not a problem. It’ll run you roughly 75 EUR when it ships in Q3 of this year, and it’ll be available in Chrome Black or Golden White.

Now if you had to ask us, we’d rather just carry two devices. One smartphone, and one feature phone that handles our voice and texting needs. We’re curious though: What would you do to save money?

    2 sim cards = 2 numbers. I wondered why this isn’t more common, as I could use a number for home and a number for business calls.

  • Htuu Sann

    Can somebody help me?

    When I click on “Maps”, it says like this:
    ” In compatible maps versions, use another memory card or delete Maps data from the File manager”
    My memory card has never ever had Maps . Ok, let it be.
    The main problem is : I don’t find any “File Manager” on this handset.
    That’s  a first big problem to proceed with this Maps issue.
    I wonder if anybody can indicate where the “File Manager” is hiding.
    Thanks.

    hi! i got one 2 weeks ago. the phone looks expensive incomparable to the price. thou having use the Samsung dual SIM prior to this one I see that sending text through this unit is sometimes hard. I get a lot of “sending message failed”. It took sometimes 3 to 4 times for my message to get send successfully. another thing I also notice that the signal of the phone is not that good. there are times that you will notice one of the SIM signal is no signal at all. Another thing the claim on the battery life is not true as the phone needed to be recharge every other day even thou you don’t used it that much. I do surely hope that Nokia has work on this problem before releasing it even if it will cost more. As after all Nokia is know for good quality phone.

      I too purchase this new Handset c203. The touch screen is not working..its really slow. worst part is the contacts, it doesnot give u the choice to show either the sim contact or phone contact.

      • Praveendec90

        Bro you purchased another scrap product from nokia. Go for samsung for best touching experince.

  • Emani satyanarayan

    the phone is croppeer from nokia. i have seen at least 6 colleagues of mine and that includes me also, discard this phone only after using for less than 6 months. now i am using rival companyany dual sim mobile and obviously i did not go for costlier phone (once bitten twice shy) and this cheap mobile is working handsomely.

  • Prof. Ehab I. Mohamed

    People of the world.. allow me to tell you me experience regarding Nokia C2-03. This is one of the worst mobile phones I’ve ever seen in my life. It has both software and hardware problems, that’s why it keeps hanging on giving the famous memory full alert problem. They keep turning around you both in Nokia care centers and in customer care service by phone, without fixing the problem or giving you your money back! Do NOT BUY NOKIA C2-03 it is a piece of crap, and do not trust Nokia products any more. If you need dual SIM phones buy Chinese mobile phones, they are convenient in price and works very efficiently, with much more functions.

  • Upamadwivedi
