Nokia C3 Touch and Type smartphone (preview)
The C3 Touch and Type is reminiscent of older Nokia phones, but adds the ability to operate the device through a touchscreen.
- Stainless steel design, 5-megapixel camera
- Remains to be seen whether hybrid design is appealing, no GPS
The Nokia C3 Touch and Type smartphone has a design that is intended to appeal to people familiar with non-touchscreen phones but it also offers a touch interface.
The Nokia C3 Touch and Type smartphone has a hybrid design that combines a touchscreen and a traditional 12-button phone keypad.
Like the Nokia X3 Touch and Type, the C3 Touch and Type is reminiscent of older Nokia phones such as the 6700 classic. According to Nokia, the combination of a resistive touchscreen and a traditional keypad gives users "both the familiarity of their trusty older devices and single-handed operation, plus a taste of the modern through the ability to operate the device through a touch interface".
The Nokia C3 Touch and Type will run the Symbian Series 40 operating system and includes 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity along with Bluetooth, but it doesn't have GPS. The handset includes Nokia Messaging 3.0, Nokia's e-mail and instant messaging software that also provides Facebook and Twitter access. The phone will also be able to access Nokia's Ovi Store for third-party applications.
The Nokia C3 Touch and Type has a stainless steel case and will come in silver, warm grey and khaki gold colour variants. It has a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a microSD memory card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB in size.
The Nokia C3 Touch and Type is expected to launch in Australia before the end of the year, but no pricing or carrier details have been announced.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
