Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type
The C3 is a very capable little phone. It represents Nokia's strengths in that the hardware is good, the battery life is great, and voice quality during phone calls is (mostly) good. The touch element has been tastefully implemented across the Series 40 operating system, making menu navigation far faster and more intuitive. Despite the C3's resistive screen, the touch tech never got in the way of using the phone.
Nokia has improved the messaging apps, with better email support, better messaging tools, and rudimentary support for IM networks. It misses the mark when it comes to social networking, however, as it lacks full, native apps. Third-party apps will get the job done, but not to the extent that an official app would.
The performance of the media software is excellent. The music player and camera/video controls are spot-on, and make perfect use of the touch screen technology added to Series 40. It's a pity that pictures captured with the 5 megapixel shooter don't impress. The C3 offers average browser performance for a feature phone.

Would I recommend this phone? For anyone who is a Series 40 fan and wants something new and different, the C3-01 Touch and Type is the handset to get. It blends the classic candybar form factor with an elegantly designed touch interface that has just the right amount of newness and familiarity. For anyone serious about social networking, web browser, and perhaps imaging, AT&T (and other carriers) has plenty of better options to choose from.
