Out of these available ones and recently launched ones E5, C6 & E71 were some of the devices which allured me. I carried out a deep research and then decided to go for C6 coz my priorities were a QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm jack.
Some of the features in this device are really outstanding and some of them have been degraded by Nokia. Click here to check Nokia C6 specifications .So I just thought, I shall come up and make a post here for all my dear mobile freak friends to let them know about Nokia C6.
On-Screen Keyboard : Lately I have discovered that there is an on-screen keyboard also available in Nokia C6. Earlier I used to open up QWERTY keyboard every time I had to type a particular thing even for searching a contact or setting up the alarm, but now it seems to be more comfortable with the key-board shown in the adjoining figure. The one that appears on the device is much more better that the one shown here. There is one more feature I liked in the device, that is 'Handwriting'. Handwriting allows you to write on the screen with you finger and the intelligent interpreter inside the mobile recognizes what the text you have written might be.
Web Using Wi-fi : Using Internet over Wi-fi is really damn fast. I could download at about 40KBps on the device. The in-built browser can provide me support for full screen view of pages and makes web-surfing a real pleasure with the sacrifice of rapid battery discharge.
PDF Reader : The Adobe PDF Reader provided with this mobile device is not so good. I mean I can easily view the ebooks, but I can not see them full screen while reading. The 'Options' sidebar always keeps up in the right of my screen. Anyways its a third-party software, so we cant really blame Nokia for this.
Music Player : I have had a very bad experience with the music player of this mobile device, not with the music quality but creating play list. When I add the songs to a new play list (or existing one) it gives me a prompt with all the available music file on the device. This is what I am not satisfied with. I wanted to have a 'File Manager' kind of prompt which would help facilitate me to enter into directories and choosing the files individually. What it provides me now is just a 'tree view' of songs and I have to keep searching and choosing the songs of my choice which is really a painful task.
One more issue that I noticed with my new Nokia C6 is that when I am playing some music while the mobile key-pad is locked, I cannot adjust the volume of the music tracks being played unless I unlock the mobile. As far as I know, I had seen that other Nokia Symbain devices used to support this feature of volume adjustment while the device is locked.
Video Player : The in-built RealPlayer is good in playing H264(AVC) videos. It feels good to watch music videos in the mobile device.
Nokia Accessories : The Accessories that came in the Nokia C6 box are :
- Nokia C6-00
- User manual and Quick guide
- Travel charger
- microUSB cable
- Stereo headset with microphone
- 2GB microSD card
Proximity Sensor : The proximity sensor on the front panel of mobile is great. I turns off the LCD backlight when you bring the phone close to your ears while talking. It helps saving battery power.
5.0 MP Camera : The camera is really really worth appreciating. The feature I liked most is the auto-focus.

Ctrl button : I had just been playing with the mobile and figured out that the Control 'Ctrl' button on the key-board is very useful. While texting or writing some text document, you can use some desktop PC familiar shortcuts like as follows:
Ctrl+A : To select all the text in the text document.
Ctrl+Z : To undo the latest changes made to the text document.
Ctrl+X : To cut the text.
Ctrl+C : To copy the text.
Ctrl+V : To paste the text.
I loved the Nokia C6 very much, though the disappointing thing is that it lacks Android OS,but I think the pros far outweigh the cons for this mobile device.
I will keep this blog post updating regularly as I go on using C6 so keep visiting.
