Consolidated Gulf Co. (CGC) has introduced Nokia C2-00 and C2-03 dual SIMs phones with dual standby capabilities, which mean that both SIM cards in the two phones are active at the same time, thus enabling its user to receive calls and text messages on either number while the phone is on. Affordable without compromise in quality, dual SIMs and feature-rich Nokia C2-00 and C2-03 offer a great web experience and up to 32 GB expandable memory supports. Making the announcement, Anil Mahajan, COO, CGC, said, “There are consumers who need dual SIMs for various reasons including economizing time and costs, improving efficiency and for increased convenience. If you have two numbers of your own, both equally important, or one that you don’t want people to know about, then dual sim phones are the perfect option for you. Addressing these consumer requirements, Nokia has come out with the two great devices that offer multiple SIM capabilities with user friendly features at affordable prices. Nokia C2-00 and C2-03 are also ideal for business professionals who have a large clientele and got two numbers most of the time and hence need to attend to business. Moreover, the two devices offer great web experience.” Web, Maps and more With affordable Nokia C2-03, consumers can enjoy a great web and maps experience, use a keypad or a touchscreen, and get the best out of mobile networks. Priced only QR 395, the device offers a web, maps and messaging experience second to none in the market. And with the choice of a touch screen or a keypad, this phone carries many wonderful and easy to use features. The Nokia C2-03 comes with Nokia's unique Dual SIM capabilities. These include features that allow the user to personalize up to five SIM cards with a dedicated look and feel, and an Easy Swap option that lets users change SIM cards in seconds without having to turn off the phone or remove the battery. The phone is equipped with new Nokia Maps for Series 40, where local maps and places of interest are pre-installed on the phone. This means users can view maps and plan routes when the phone is in offline mode, thus saving on the costs of downloading maps over the mobile network. Nokia C2-03 also delivers a great internet browsing experience through the data compression technology of the Nokia Browser, which keeps the costs of surfing low and speeds up page downloads - benefiting both consumers and operators. The browser loads with a localized start page, giving the user instant access to the most relevant content, and is tabbed to give easy access to favorite or previously viewed information. Nokia C2-03 also packs a stereo FM radio and media player. Browsing made easier At an introductory rate of only QR 280, C2-00 carries some great features such as GPRS, OVI Chat, OVI Mail and 3.5 mm audio jack, allowing for a smooth internet connection portal and you can now browse through your favourite websites whenever the mood strikes you. Nokia C2-00 comes in a sleek model, weighing hardly 74 grams with a soft keypad, allowing for comfortable typing of messages and buttons that don’t put stress on the thumb and fingers, even after repeated text messages. VGA camera, Bluetooth, Stereo FM radio with recording, music player, Nokia Music Store support and much more allows room for entertainment for the user.
