Spy shots of Nokia C2-06 Touch and Type slider emerge

A new member of the Touch and Type family showed up in several spy shots – the dual-SIM Nokia C2-06. It’s a fairly low-end slider, with a resistive touchscreen and a slide-out phone keypad, 2 SIM cards (2G only).

The Nokia C2-06 looks very similar to another Touch and Type slider that leaked in March, though there are some differences (the area below the display mainly). The phone runs the touch-enabled version of Series 40 and has a resistive display (likely, QVGA again).

It is a dual-SIM phone but right now it is not clear if it’s a dual standby or not. The second SIM is easily accessible though, through a panel on the left. The Nokia C2-06 is a 2G-only phone and lacks Wi-Fi connectivity (it’s a low-end model after all), unlike its two official Touch and Type brethren.

The few other specs of the Nokia C2-06 Touch and Type are 2MP camera, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port and an a BL-5C battery. There’s an Ovi Maps shortcut visible but most likely no dedicated GPS receiver.

That’s about all there is on the C2-06 Touch and Type for now. Nokia still has strong positions in the low-end market and a device like that can help out quite a bit, especially in developing markets.
