TP friend, Neal Mendoza, sent us THE tweet this morning,

Yes! Right on schedule, much-anticipated Nokia C6 slider phone has hit store shelves in the Philippines with an SRP of roughly Php 16,000 Php 14,950!

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. The large screen provides a great Internet experience and also allows you to access Facebook feeds directly on the homescreen. 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. The phone also supports practically all connectivity options you'll ever need in this day and age, including 3G HSDPA 3.6 Mbps; HSUPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, GPRS Class 32, EDGE Class 32 and microUSB. Thousands of apps for the device are also waiting to be downloaded - from games and videos to news aggregators and web services - via the Ovi Store.

"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."

Initial Impressions:

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! :)

    coz both have affordable prices. i would appreciate if youre gonna make a table like what you did in other posts.

  4. Hi Caloy!

    Thanks for checking out TP :) I appreciate it.
    C6 vs. N97 mini - tough call.
    But I'd personally choose C6 over the latter. That's just me. :)

  5. @ Anonymous 1

    Haha. *blushes* Salamat. :P

  6. @ Anonymous 2

    Sure, we can do that. I'll publish the table early next week, maybe?

  7. does this phone have a "threaded sms" view?

  8. Nokia in SM Manila has no idea of when they will have this phone as well as the Nokia C3. Where can i buy the C6? your blog has been a great help to me in many ways.Thanks a lot.[:

  9. I thought it was around 12Plus pesos?

  10. hi sir. what are the alternatives for nokia c6? in other words, what phones are there in the market that has the same level and price range of nokia c6?

    For the past month i wanted to buy the c6, but as soon as i heard about x10 mini pro and bold torch. Now, I'm confused. haha.

    What's the recommendable phone? sabi kasi parang wala daw dating ang c6 eh? parang 5800 lang na slider. haha.

    I do text and call much. Multimedia is a plus factor as well as applications like yahoo, facebook, etc.

    I'm open to suggestions. Thanks! :)

  11. Update on SRP of Nokia C6. It's at P14,950. =) Should be at Nokia Stores already.

  12. yup...meron na sa sm mla...both c3 and c6

  13. I must say, it costs more than i expected.

  14. @timothy ian: I am in the same dilemma right now! Choosing between x10 mini pro and the nokia c6. But my scales are in favor of the c6 as of the moment, coz the x10 mini pro doesn't have a secondary camera (for video calls) and i've read in reviews that its hard to send files thru bluetooth (they say you have to install a software pa)..well just sharing what i've researched so far! hope it can be useful to you! *wink*

  15. what about nokia E5? price? availability?

  16. nice site. fellow filipino on the mobile blogosphere.
