"the loss of two keys – exclamation mark and apostrophe"
Don't know whether to be happy or sad. On the one hand it might help curtail exclamation mark abuse, but on the other...!!!!11
It might look like Nokia's high-powered, business-centric E72, but the C3 offers a stripped-down spec with a price to match and the emphasis on social networking with a full, hard-key Qwerty keyboard. Nokia C3 Key feature: Nokia’s C3 The Nokia C3 isn't exactly tiny at 116 x58 x 14mm and 114g but its tapered edges mean it …
Er, I know I'm not always quite sane but aren't those two 'missing keys' perching like parrots on the shoulders of the 'Question Mark' and 'L' keys, eh? Come on, tell me they're not.
They are not missing, they just need the shift key. And claiming that "Handy punctuation like @ and the full stop have their own keys" is not true because they are also shared.
which is like an E71 without the GPS, and it's no great loss - I've got Google Maps working as a pedestrian navigation aid, and triangulation of location using mobile transmitters has done the job for me so far.
I'd say this looks like a decent little handset, probably would have tempted me if it had been £30 cheaper.
The use of S40 instead of S60 on this kind of handset seems entirely sensible. I have a fairly low-end S60 handset (Nokia 6210) and it really doesn't add much to what S40 brings for things like simple browsing, email etc. But the lack of 3G seems a real loss for a data-centric handset. Seems to limit severely what you can do with that impressive keyboard. I guess it keeps the price down, though.
Possibly people like me. I don't need ultrafast mobile internet, as I would only use it every now and then. I don't want to spend more than £80 on a phone, I don't need a fashion accessory, I need something that wil llet me make and receive phone calls and send the odd text. I also need something that will synch with Outlook, something Nokia's do very easily. I've tried Samsung, never again, Apple? Far too expensive, a cheap Android? From what I can gather, no synching without selling your soul to Gmail first. If someone out there could create an app that works as well as Nokia PC Suite has for me over the years, I'd think about going Android.
