Nokia C6-01 starts shipping, hits the FCC (with North American 3G)
Unlike the C6-00, the C6-01 doesn’t have a sliding QWERTY keyboard and comes with a dual-LED 8MP camera, and 720p video recording. Other than that, it has a 3.2 inch ClearBlack AMOLED touchscreen display (360 x 640 pixels), HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Ovi Maps with free navigation, 3.5mm headset jack, and MicroSD card support.
The C6-01 is “one of Nokia’s greenest devices to date, featuring the use of bioplastics and recycled metals for much of its construction.” It will cost €260 ($368) before taxes and subsidies.
The FCC has just approved the Nokia C6-01, and since the handset features 850 / 1700 / 1900 MHz WCDMA connectivity, it may be on sale in North America soon (theoretically, both AT&T and T-Mobile could launch it in the US).
