Up close with the Nokia C2-00 dual sim phone

Nokia C2-00

I had the chance to get close to this Nokia dual sim phone at a Nokia event that i will be reviewing in the next article. Dual sim phones are becoming a norm for big Mobile phone companies. I have reviewed several, two techcom phones, the Techcom T-60, the Techcom T-21, the Samsung chat and very recently a review by @kiruti of the Nokia X1-01, and you can tell the big guys are taking the dual sim phones seriously.

I had a chance to feel, though briefly, the Nokia C2-00 and took pics of it. That was when @juuchini won it as a prize for pitching his review of the CDFMonitor ovi app.

I didnt have enough time to pick all the specs and even switch it on, but atleast I know it has this cool feature of hot-swap.

A feature where you can remove one sim card on the side slot while the phone is still on. Great feature, but it misses dual standby as i came to understand.

Be sure to get more of this once i have better access to the phone.

There was also another observation i made when i peeked into the package, and that is a swahili user manual. I havent seen this one in other phones yet.

Instead of the many languages that dont matter to many in the country, like Chinese, German and Czech (thats the spelling, right?), swahili means the phone makers wanted to appeal to the East African, where this language is big.C2-00 swahili manualSo until i get to actually review it, i cant speak much of the features, but as @oyolla, Nokia East and Southern Africa GM said, the phone arrived recently in the country, and you might just have the chance to hot-swap if you check in to the shops.
