Nokia has announced the launch of the Nokia 6122c, an S60 phone available exclusively for China Mobile. The 6122c is actually the 6120 with a new outer casing. It features S60 3rd edition feature pack 1, as well as a 2.0 mega pixel camera, FM radio, microSD Card slot, and a dedicated China Mobile internet key.
China Mobile is the world’s biggest mobile operator with over 400 Million subscribers, so this partnership represents a significant win for Nokia and S60, which also confirms S60 as a favorite of telco operators. The choice of S60 as a preferred platform helps to deliver new services and reduce time to market and testing costs for new phones. These partnerships with operators have allowed S60 to enter the mid market and achieve sales that leave competing open software platforms way behind.
Note: The picture displayed here is the Nokia 6124, and NOT the 6122c, but the difference between them should only be the branding.
