Nokia C6 is a Symbian-S60-based smartphone, powered by an ARM 11 434 MHz processor, that combines the benefits of a 3.2 inch high-sensitivity resistive touchscreen with a full QWERTY slide out keyboard.

Nokia C6 is perfect for people who want to stay up to date and connected while on the go; giving them a full suite of email and social networking options.
Nokia C6 has an impressive specifications set including a five megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation.

"Our messaging device range is very successful," shares Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia's Head of Markets. "Services that provide easy access to the world's consumer and corporate email and instant messaging are really popular on our QWERTY smartphones such as the Nokia E71 and Nokia E63. People want the best messaging and social networking experience on an affordable device, whether it's sending a simple text or instant message, an email, or a direct message from their Twitter account. The Nokia C3, Nokia C6 and Nokia E5 are made for just that."

One thing I really like about this phone is its build quality. You need only play with this device once to realize that much thought and careful research have been put into its construction. The slide mechanism feels incredibly sturdy while metallic accents add not only an air of sophistication but also that look of durability.
I'm looking forward to receiving a review unit from Nokia Philippines soon so I could give you a full review of the device. :) Hopefully, we get the Nokia C6 soon. I think this phone is HOT! :)
