Nokia C1-01 Review


Welcome to the Nokia C1-01 review and information page. Released in mid-2010 the C1-01 is another entry level mobile phone.  Strangely despite the C1 tag it does not have much in common with the previously reviewed C1-00.

We did not expect to many additional bits of functionality apart from the basics so you shouldn’t either.  However once again we where and so will you be surprised at that is included. Technically it is a GSM only phone but has the ability to access data though the rudimentary GPRS standard.  Other features include a VGA camera, bluetooth and even microSD card expansion.

Until we can test one for real we can’t really say much more.

So far the C1-01 is definitely going to be one of the best price GSM only phones with functionality that will keep quite a number of people happy for at least 12 months before wanting more.
