Nokia C2-06 Review:
This one is a pretty basic dual sim handset from Nokia. It has all the basic features like bluetooth, music player, FM radio, games and Java. It resembles the low end Nokia dual sim phones but its sliding keypad and the touch feature makes it more pricely.

Just like most of Nokia mobiles The design of this mobile is very impressive. This product is much similar to Nokia C2-02 and Nokia C2-03 from design point of view. Nokia C2-06 is available in graphite color. It has a smashing slider which gives it an amazing look. The slider brings out a smooth keypad which makes the finger feel good while typing. Its dimensions are 103 x 51.4 x 17 while it weighs up to 115 gm.

It also supports up to 32 GB external memory card.
The camera of this product is of 2 MP. A mobile of this standard should have been inducted with a much more powerful camera keeping up with the demand of users. A 3.15 MP camera would have made this phone amazing in the word's true sense.
