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.
