    I agree, Most of Indians love only Nokia brand only.

Arun Kumar - June 15, 2010

Thanks for the information Arun. This is new for me. I love Nokia and it’s my favorite mobile brand which is user friendly.
I used to buy mobiles from Last time due to my bad luck and pressure from one of the staffs in the store, I took Samsung wireless radio phone instead of Nokia Xpress Radio, which I was planning to buy and went there. They told Samsung is better than Nokia in battery life and this phone has lot of features plus dual speakers that give amazing sound effects. I fell in the canvas and bought it. But within two days I felt the difference. The receiving sound quality was bad and the radio reception also poor. Don’t buy samsung. It’s is bad one. I always recommend Nokia and Sony, but mostly Nokia. I love it. Also they didn’t replace the phone and I sold it as second hand phone. Lost my bucks. Anyway I finally took Nokia 1209, which is moreover good. Also there are some problems with Nokia too. I have the model Nokia 1202 as it has some software problems like hanging and auto switch off. But the rest are good. The main advantage of Nokia is its service is available every where when compared to other brands.

Anyway thanks for providing information about this new models. Also I am excited with the model Nokia C1-02. Looks stylish. The price is also affordable. Nokia WINS….

I wanted to know if the C2 nokia hand set records the conversation between the two speakers and records the sounds from outside like a tape recorder would. This is important and it should be mentioned if the facilities are available in the set.
