Today, Nokia announced a new handset, called the C5.

The C5 is a new smartphone packed into a feature phone body, boasting S60 3rd edition and a host of messaging and social networking features already built-in.  It also boasts a bright 2.2-inch display and a 3.2-megapixel camera.  It will also come with free walk and drive navigation (courtesy of Ovi Maps) and is ready for messaging with Nokia Messaging built-in.

The C5 boasts a cool new feature in its phone book, where you can see your friend’s status updates directly from Facebook, if you like that kind of thing!  You can also update your Facebook status easily and share your location with your friends using Ovi Maps 3.0.

In the way of storage you get a 2Gb mircoSD card included, but it will support up to 16GB cards, plenty of room for storing your pictures & music!  It also has a built-in stereo FM radio and 3.5mm AV connector, not to mention the Stereo IHF speaker, so it will sound good too.

The handset measures 12mm thin and 46mm across, and is 112mm high.  Nokia say battery life is around 12 hours and it’ll sit quietly on standby for 26 days between charges!!

The C5 will cost around €140 and will be available in the second quarter of 2010, globally in Europe, Eurasia, SEAP, China and MEA and will come in either white and warm grey.
