Nokia C2-03 Arrives on Ghana Market

             Leading global phone manufacturer, Nokia, has added to the list of its dual SIM phone offerings in Ghana with the entry of C2-03.

            The phone, which was launched alongside Nokia X1-01, Nokia C2-00 recently, is third of the range of dual SIM phones Nokia has brought to the market. In a statement released to the media, Nokia C2-03 comes with Nokia’s unique Dual SIM capabilities including features that allow the user to personalize up to five SIM cards. It also boasts dedicated look and feel and an easy swap option that lets users change SIM cards in seconds without having to turn off the phone or remove the battery.

            The phone comes with new Nokia Maps – local maps and places of interest are pre-installed. This means users can view maps and plan routes when the phone is in offline mode, thereby saving on the cost of downloading maps over mobile networks.

             Head of Communications, Nokia West Africa, Osagie Ogunbor said with the introduction of C2-03 the firm was offering users additional options to improve their experiences in the dual SIM range of phones. According to him, Nokia C2-03 comes with a touch and type feature that enables the use of finger tips to scroll through websites, phones and music. ‘’Unlike many touch-screen phones, there’s a slide-out keypad for fast, easy typing like your computer would,’’ he said.

Some offerings that users have, he said, include easy access to Facebook, applications, email, maps and the Nokia Life Tools. He stated further, ‘’the phone delivers a great internet browsing experience through the data compression technology of the Nokia browser, which keeps the costs of surfing low and speeds up page downloads to benefit both consumers and operators’’.

            Mr. Rutherford, explained that the Nokia C2-03 offers users some unique features that sets it apart from other dual sims phones. “C2-03 is the first ever touch and type dual SIM phone to feature easy swap, a feature that is unique to Nokia phones. It is the first time devices are shipped with new Nokia browser that allows users access the Internet faster, easier and more affordably.”
