Apart from the long-awaited Nokia E7, Nokia World also saw the launch of other Symbian^3 models, the Nokia C7 and Nokia C6-01. Both have similar specs, and fall under the same category (but not class).
The sleek C7 which boasts a 3.5-inch AMOLED display and is a hand-friendly 10.5mm thin. Like the E7 this device also sports an 8-megapixel camera with 8GB of onboard storage (expandable to 40GB with microSD). The Nokia C7 will also shoot HD video in 720p and comes with free global walk and drive navigation and a digital compass. City users will welcome the active noise cancellation for clearer voice calls whilst the battery will keep calls going for up to 9.5 hours (in GSM mode) and stay on standby for an astounding 27 days (3G mode). The Nokia C7 is expected to go on sale before the end of 2010 and will be available in black, metal or brown for an estimated retail price of €335 before taxes and subsidies.
Like its big Cseries brother, the latest Nokia C6 is a compact little number that will also sport an 8-megapixel camera though with a more pocket-friendly 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. The latter sporting the same Nokia ClearBlack technology as the E7, offering much improved outdoor visibility. Like the C7, this new device will also be a social networker’s dream with live feeds from your favorite social networks available on your home screen. The C6-01 will support microSD up to 32GB and capture HD video in 720p. Users can expect to see up to 17 days standby time and up to 11.5 hours talktime from the C7 battery. Expected to be shipping before the end of 2010, the Nokia C6-01 will be available in silver or black and is estimated to retail at €260 before taxes and subsidies.

Nokia launched its new Messaging system today through the virtual event called Everyone Connect online, along with 3 mid-range phones; all QWERTY.
The devices support up to 10 email accounts. Intelligent tab system makes it easy to flip between your different accounts. And keep in touch with friends and family. Multiple chat accounts means you can stay in touch with your loved ones whatever chat client they are using. Social networks are now integrated into the new system as well.
Now for the phones, Let’s start things off with the colorful C3-00 (available Q2 for €90 pre-tax and pre-subsidy) — Nokia’s first Series 40 QWERTY. The quad-band GSM candybar crams its social networking tools onto a 2.4-inch QVGA homescreen with Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, and 55MB of internal memory (and up to 8GB supported on microSD) coming along for the ride. It’s also packing the Opera Mini browser in addition to the standard Webkit fare for browsing the mobile internet on the C3′s paltry EGPRS data connection. But hey, €90.
Moving on, we’ve got the more ambitious C6-00 (Q2, €220) 4-row QWERTY slider with quad-band GSM/EDGE and quad-band HSDPA/UMTS on the 850/900/1900/2100 frequencies. The familiar looking C6 runs S60 5th on that 3.2-inch nHD (640 x 360 pixel) touchscreen (resistive, we presume) with a 5 megapixel autofocus camera and flash riding the backside. Of course, it also features integrated A-GPS for free Ovi Maps turn-by-turn navigation as is the case for all new Nokia GPS-enabled smartphones.
Finally we’ve got the E5-00 (Q3, €180) for those in need of a S60 3rd device that’s a bit more business-minded than the C3 but twice the price (but still cheap). That means tri-band UMTS, A-GPS, WiFi and another 2.4-inch LCD.

This is the new Nokia C6, which I hope is the last S60 5th Edition device from Nokia, unless of course it comes with a 600Mhz processor as rumoured.
No further details are known apart from the info that it has quad-band GSM, tri-band WCDMA, GPS, WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.1, same 3.2″ screen as on the Nokia 5230 (looks smaller here though, probably 3″) with 640 × 360 pixel display, 256MB internal memory with microSD card slot, a 39-button QWERTY keyboard (which is the highest among all of similar Nokia models), all-plastic chassis, and codenamed Nokia C6-00 in FCC documents.
