Nokia C1-01 budget voicephone

 

Review Though you wouldn't guess as much from the raucous clamour about the as-yet-unforeseeable outcome of Nokia's adoption of Windows Phone 7 as its smartphone OS of choice, the Finnish phone giant continues to run a very decent business selling...

Nokia C1-01 and C1-02

 

Before we look at these handsets in more detail, we have to say that we think that the model names indicate the mess that Nokia have made with their new naming conventions. The C1-01 is the one with the camera, the C1-02 is the one without.. although...
