Nokia C2-00 Dual-SIM Dual-Standby phone has reached the Philippines!
And TP Friends, TechPinas is the first to see it in the flesh and play with it (aside from peeps in Nokia Philippines, of course.), thanks to Nikka!
Ladies and gents, here's Nokia C2-00 --
The review unit is here so I bet it won't be long before the handset hits store shelves. As yet though, we don't have the official word on price and release date but rest assured that we'll keep you posted once we get an update from Nokia Philippines.
One of the coolest things about Nokia is that the company has a phone for everyone; It has a handset in every price category, answering various needs. I think Nokia C2-00 is ideal for budget-conscious consumers who want a phone with dual-SIM dual-standby capabilities -- but from a trusted brand with reliable after-sales service.
TP Initial Impressions
Like all Nokia phones that came before it, Nokia C2-00 feels very solid in the hand. No flexes, whatsoever. While it's small and its case is hardly made of metal, it doesn't feel cheap or poorly constructed.
One thing I absolutely love about this Dual-SIM phone is that it comes with an Easy SIM Swap Port on the side. I think it's ingenious. You put the SIM that you regularly use inside the handset and put the other one that you don't use as often in this port. This way, if you have more than two SIM cards, it would be easier for you to use the third, the fourth or the fifth one.
That's it for now. Again, please stay tuned for updates.
