Nokia has announced 4 new models fitting in its C series, aimed at audience in developing countries. Two of these phones will support dual SIMs while other two are going to be good for multimedia – but at good price.

The battery is estimated to last 16 days on standby and 4 hours of talk time. The Nokia C2 also features VGA camera, GPRS Internet connectivity, Bluetooth and FM radio with broadcast recording. There’s also a microSD card (up to 32GB, but those cost more than the phone itself), 3.5mm audio jack plus an MP3 player.
The other dual-SIM phone is the Nokia C1-00, which will cost around Rs. 3,200. It doesn’t have two active cards – just one, but there’s a quick shortcut to switch between the two.
The phone has a smashing standby of 48 days. It features an FM radio, 3.5mm audio jack and a flashlight.
Nokia C1-00 is expected to hit the stores in the third quarter 2010.
