The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Unfortunately, the same speed doesn't seem to apply when switching between apps, and there can sometimes be a wait of several seconds, especially when you're opening the Communities app.

Movie watching isn't great on the small screen, though it can show H.263, H.264, AVI or MPEG-4 formats. The music player isn't bad at all (MP3, AAC or WMA formats) though the supplied headphones feel very cheap and bass-light. Fortunately, it's easy to add a better pair using the 3.5mm headphone jack or stereo Bluetooth. There's an FM radio on board too with ten presets.

There's only 55MB of memory on board for storing your media but Nokia provides a 2GB MicroSD card in the box, which you can bump up to 8GB if needs be. Battery life is pretty good though, and we got a good three days out of it before we needed to recharge.

Verdict

The Nokia C3 is a decent little communicator with a good set of features at a low price. It might lack the sophistication of the better touch screen smart phones and is let down by the lack of 3G and that laggy processor, but it has a great keyboard and some pretty good social networking integration as well as decent battery life. ®
