Nokia intros C5-03 starter touchscreen phone

Nokia reimagined its C5 line today by unveiling the C5-03. Now a touchscreen phone, it's conceived as an entry into real smartphones with a 3.2-inch resistive 640x360 display, GPS and now Wi-Fi. It keeps Symbian S60 rather than leaping to Symbian^3 but has the latest version of Ovi Maps and other recent apps.

A handful of other hardware choices keep the price down, including the use of a five-megapixel camera without flash and a low 40MB of internal memory that puts most of the burden on the microSDHC card slot. Some of the newcomer focus is reflected in a design that focuses on two-tone colors with either black or white syncing up with another color.

The C5-03 should be available by the end of the year and will cost just 170 euros ($239) off-contract. In its current form, it doesn't support North American 3G and would need a separate model to work on AT&T, T-Mobile or Canadian carriers.
