Nokia C2-05

 

The Nokia C2-05 is the latest to join the Finns' Touch and Type line-up, offering both a keyboard and a touchscreen for those on a budget.

This may be an affordable handset, but the C2-05 is a stylish piece of kit. It arrives boasting an eye-catching metallic Blue, Pink or glossy Black casing, and measures in at 99.4 x 47.8 x 16.3mm. It may not be the skinniest of handsets, but it's...

You can keep up to date with email as well as making calls etc. Everything is sychronised once you find the right app (in my case a google app which came with the phone)

It was difficult to find a way to sync my mobile calendar with the calendar on my home PC, but there is a brilliant google app that does this for free, which came with the phone. The instructions for doing this were virtually non existent
