We’ve known for a while that Nokia is planning on getting into the Dual SIM (GSM) market for sometime now. From the leaks going around, it seems like a slick looking Dual SIM smartphone just might be in the works already from the Finns. A site called Hackintosh-India has posted leaked images of a new C-Series slider handset that might also be categorised as Nokia Touch and Type device.

Nokia’s Touch and Type series are gaining ground as low end devices that offer users a little more than just basic functionality in sleek forms. The X3-02 and C3-01 seem to be faring quite well in the Indian market. 

The leaked images reveal a standard mobile phone alphanumeric keypad and –

  • a 2.8-inch (I’m guessing) resistive touchscreen display. This should keep the price down a bit.
  • EDGE/GPRS (no 3G or Wi-Fi, according to the source)
  • Bluetooth
  • 2MP camera

The handset that could very well be called the C2-06, since the reports state it showed up as the handset’s Bluetooth id, would most likely run on a Symbian Series 40 6th Edition OS.

There’s no official word of such a handset from the company, so naturally there are no details about when we can expect it or what kind of price tag it would bare. If I had to guess, I’d estimate it would be in the Rs. 5,000 to 7,000 price range.
