Nokia Launches Dual SIM Mobile Phone C1 and C2 In India

Nokia India today unveiled its long awaited 2-in-1 dual SIM (GSM+GSM) mobile phone, Nokia C1 (C1-00) and Nokia C2 (C2-00).

The two new devices, in the Nokia Cseries family, are available at very attractive and affordable price points and will address the consumer need for a Nokia phone boasting multiple sim functionality.

Nokia C1 and Nokia C2 will enable users to take advantage of a rounded feature set including multiple phone book options, long battery life, large screen and local language interface.

Unveiling the new devices, Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia said, “As per our deep consumer insights, entry level consumers need dual SIMs for various reasons including economizing time and costs, improving efficiency and for increased convenience.To address these consumer requirements, Nokia has launched these two devices that offer multiple SIM capabilities with a balanced feature set and ‘relevant innovations’ at affordable price points.”

Nokia C1 will be available at an MRP of Rs1999 and will be the first Nokia mobile phone to feature a 2-in-1 SIM solution. Nokia C1 owners will greatly benefit from the ‘call divert’ feature in the new phone, which will ensure that they never miss a call from either of the two SIMs. Moreover, by simply holding down a key, people will be able to switch between the two SIM cards in the phone.

Nokia C1 owners will also benefit from a standby battery time of up to six weeks, the longest ever for a Nokia mobile phone, especially useful in those parts of the country where access to electricity is sometimes limited. The standard flashlight – often someone’s only means of bright light – is paired with a vivid color screen and FM radio with standard headphone jack, meaning the Nokia C1 is as much about entertainment as it is about convenience.

Nokia C2 comes with Nokia’s innovative services including Ovi Life Tools and Ovi Mail. Nokia’s Ovi Life Tools provides consumers a wide range of information covering healthcare, agriculture, education and entertainment, whereas Ovi Mail offers email accounts for the developing world.

The Nokia C2 also makes listening to music simple with the FM radio and music player and a massive amount of music storage with the phone supporting micro-SD cards of up to 32GB.

    @Fahad

    I’m not so easily sold on labels. I’v seen a couple of pretty good Chinese rebranded low end phones which are easily better than Nokia crap. In fact they have way more features! And btw, I am not saying all Chinese phones are good… you gotta know what to pick! You have mentioned these Nokias are dual stand-by. This is not mentioned anywhere. Unless they are dual stand-by, everything else is useless, at IMO.

  • Amit.G September 2, 2010 12:11 pm

    Should wait n see how is performance of both mobiles

    Nokia C1 is a dual SIM mobile phone but not dual standby which mean only one SIM will work at a time know.
    Whether Nokia C2 is dual standby phone and whether it is available now in market or will be made available later this year or early next year?? and what is the Nokia C2 price?

  • AJAY RAO August 31, 2010 7:49 pm

    @Avishek

    In india there is big market of basic cells, so it may bcome hit but better nokia also to include dual sim with their higher and good smart phone or to launch G + (G or C). combination of all these will b great !!!

  • Fahad August 31, 2010 7:18 pm

  • VANEESH August 30, 2010 10:42 pm

    the present dual sim brands like videocon, carbon,max,lava,onida are pulled out off dual sim phone market during the arrival of nokia dual sim phones.

  • sunil August 30, 2010 10:35 pm

    Finally Nokia is suporting Dual-SIM. Good to hear that!!
    But it seems from this article that Nokia C1 is not dual standby phone. Both the sim will not be active at the same time. One has to use Call-Divert feature to get call on one sim diverted to the active sim. If it is so it is better to have two phones.
    Please Comment
    Details of C2 is not given.
