Nokia C6-01 starts shipping, hits the FCC (with North American 3G)

Nokia C6-01, one of the world’s newest Symbian touchscreen smartphones, is now shipping and it should be available in the coming weeks via retailers and mobile operators around the world.

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).

    TMobile couldn’t use this device, since their AWS network requires both 1700 and 2100 MHz to operate. It isn’t a single band network. Part is upstream, the other downstream. But it isn’t unprecedented for a device to be altered specifically for TMobileUSA, as was the Nokia Nuron.

    Isn’t this a PENTA-band WCDMA device. just like the N8, C7 and E7? Its 3G should work on US GSM carriers; both AT&T and T-mobile.
