Both of these handsets comes with long battery life and they support multiple phonebook, large screen and local language interface.
Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia said at the launch event,
“As per our deep consumer insights, entry level consumers need dual SIMs for various reasons including economizing time and costs, improving efficiency and for increased convenience. To address these consumer requirements, Nokia has launched these two devices that offer multiple SIM capabilities with a balanced feature set and relevant innovations at affordable price points.”
Out of these two handsets, C1 is a basic phone with basic features. It has two main features. One is Call-divert and other is long standby battery life of 6 weeks. C1 has a negative feature that although it supports two SIM cards to be inserted at the same time but still we can’t use both of these SIM cards at the same time. The users need to switch between two SIM cards. But with the call divert feature, you can divert the calls of one SIM card to another. Among other features are Flashlight, FM Radio, Color screen and headphone jack. Nokia C1 is available at a price of around Rs 1999.
