Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type
Series 40 continues to have a kick-ass music player. The user interface isn't the most graphically pleasing in the universe, but it gets the job done. It's a snap to sort through artists, albums, playlists, etc. The music playback tools are simple and work flawlessly. It also offers advanced features, such as a 5-band user-adjustable equalizer, playlist creation on the fly, and more. From the home screen, the media controls are easily accessed because they replace one of the 4 content slots (though some might be annoyed by this).
To top it all off, the included speaker outperforms the stereo speakers on my laptop (no joke!). It can be set loud enough to serve as a music player in a room or office. The quality was also fantastic, even set to the maximum volume. I was very surprised by how well the C3 plays music. Using my favorite headphones was an even better experience.
The one bummer is that the C3 doesn't have access to any music stores. No Ovi Music, no Amazon MP3, no AT&T Music. You're on your own to sideload music via the microSD card.

The same media player handles video chores, as well, though it is somewhat limited. For example, it doesn't support movies downloaded from iTunes or Amazon, but can handle DVDs that are ripped into the right file format. But watching video content on that tiny screen is not the best experience. Clearly, this device is not meant for watching movies.
