Nokia continued its bling initiative today, announcing a gold-clad smartphone for the aspiring Del Boy or extravagant pimp.

Nokia C3-01 gold edition

The Nokia C3-01 gold edition is an Series 40-based smartphone with 18ct gold plating and a ceramic-feel keypad. It packs a 1GHz processor, a 2.4in touchscreen and 5Mp camera.

The Nokia C3-01 - or should that be C3PO? - has already started shipping in Europe for €220 (£193). ®
