Hellz yeah, while Symbian users are whining away with paltry 680 MHz processors in their SMARTphones, here comes a leak which has a supposedly “dumb” S40 device – the Nokia C3-01.5 sporting a 1 GHZ processor with 512 MB RAM and a clear back amoled capacitive display. It definitely looks like the upgraded Nokia C3-01 which is of the touch and type genre of phones. Please take the specs with a pinch of salt, they might not be true.

GSMArena has scored the leak from a chinese site, visit them for more details.

Now, the rant :

Seriously, Nokia ? Smartphones are getting 680MHz processors while S40 dumb phones getting 1 GHZ processor with 512 MB RAM ? On one hand , i am glad S40 is getting powerful with the supposed addition of Qt to the platform, on the other hand, i am pissed. Well, all for the best , i should assume. One day, the new S40 which might be linux based running a fast Qt UI with a much better browser and thousands of nice third party apps might be the biggest Smart/dumbphone hybrid we’d have ever seen. Either way i see, Symbian is SOOO dead haha.

  1. I think it’s more a case of progress – future phones (whatever OS they run) will be more powerful than existing phones – not really surprising. S40 hasn’t been a “dumb” phone for years, and should be counted as a smartphone (especially if the rumours about Qt native apps turn out to be true – although it already supports Java apps, and no one criticises Android for using Java).

    It would only be odd if the low end S40 smartphones are more powerful than high end more expensive Nokia phones, but there’s no evidence of that. And the high end phones will be running WP7 and Meego, not Symbian (which will be phased out – that’s the only reason it will be “dead”).

  2. […] too long ago, I had ranted about the same ,on a news mentioning 1GHz Nokia devices arriving to the S40 portfolio in the form […]

    i think this phone is great but it has its own problems. I just experience the lockin of my shortcut buttons and the menu bar as well. But thank God i’ve been able to sort it out
