Nokia X5 and C5 TD-SCDMA phones officially announced
Well what do you know, that rumored Nokia X5 turned out to be a phone made for China only. Nokia has just announced the X5, alongside a new Nokia C5 that looks slightly different than the old Nokia C5 (which is actually not that old – it was announced last month).
The new Nokia X5 and C5 are both made for China Mobile (the world’s largest mobile carrier) and are part of Nokia’s portfolio of TD-SCDMA devices.
Since it’s an Xseries handset, the Nokia X5 has been designed “for music lovers and young trendsetters”, being the “first Nokia TD-SCDMA Symbian based entertainment device.”
The X5 features a 2.4 QVGA display, access to Mobile Market-Ovi Store (a hybrid app marketplace between China Mobile’s Store and Ovi Store), 5MP camera with dual LED flash, VGA camera for video-calling, GPS, “Mobile Map/Navigation”, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, Fetion IM, and MicroSD card support. The phone will be available in China starting this quarter (Q2) in three color versions: black, white and red.
The TD-SCDMA Nokia C5 also runs Symbian, featuring a 2.4 inch QVGA display, 5MP camera, VGA video-calling camera, access to MM-Ovi Store, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth, and MicroSD card support.
Like the X5, the C5 will be available in China starting Q2. It will have two color versions: black and silver.
