Buy Nokia C3 in Pakistan from http://www.360bin.com
The phone often crashes when you try to forward MP4 files.
Not all MP4 files are supported, the picture disappears for some files.
2 mega pixel camera is totally crap.
When you're typing a long tweet or facebook status update, or in my case even blog draft :p and there's music playing in the background the phone becomes dead slow, letters appear slowly on screen while you type.
I tried to perform Nokia c3-00 update many times but it failed. I currently have version 4 of the OS.
Buy Samsung CorbyPro
Earlier this year(2010) Samsung introduced its amazing line up of budget "Almost Smart Phones" called Samsung Corby. Corby line up included Corby TXT, Corby, and Corby Pro. All the Corbies had 2.0 megapixel camera. And there were Wi-Fi capable versions as well. A Corby Txt is pictured below, this one seems to be closest competitor of Nokia C3-00
Corby Pro was all about touch touch. I think Samsung wanted to steal some of iPhone lovers. Or lure in people who got iPhone on their wish list, but don't have enough bucks to buy one.
Samsung Pro sports a nice slide out keypad as well, an attempt to bring in high end Nokia phones look and feel, I think.
But I think Nokia's OVi store has played an important role in success of Nokia C3-00. Because OVi store contains a whole lot of applications, which can be easily downloaded for free or maybe purchased.
- A browser app which could be minimized just like Messenger, and Media Player. In fact, the capability to hide any running application and move out to other applications. The number of concurrent user applications can be limited.
- S60 like home key, which would make switching between applications much easier.
- Pop up alerts about new call and SMS on PC when a C3-00 is connected to PC via OVi suite.
- An easily customizable grid/list view background
- A Blackberry style scroll wheel.
