Nokia recently announced three new Touch and Type phones in the Nokia CSeries range of value for money phones. Two of them, the Nokia C2-03 and Nokia C2-06 are dual-SIM phones while the C2-02 (the focus of this overview) offers only one SIM. Nokia C2-02 is a Series 40 phone featuring touchscreen, a 12-key slide-out keypad, 2.0MP camera, 32GB memory card support, Nokia Ovi Maps, push email, instant messaging, social media support, and a very loud loudspeaker.
A Touchscreen combined with keypad
Nokia C2-02 features a 2.6-inch touchscreen offering a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The Nokia C2 Touch and Type also comes with a slide-out standard 12-key keypad, giving users the best of both worlds. Touchscreen is easier and faster when selecting menu and options and navigating interface, while keypads are still favoured by people who are used to it.
Because the Nokia C2 Touch and Type is compact it fits easily in your hand, making one-thumb typing easy and fast. This makes it great for messaging.
