Nokia Cancels Another US Phone; Nokia C5-03 Is the Victim
After cancelling the AT&T-bound Nokia X7 and delaying the E7, the Finns have some more bad news for the U.S. users. They Nokia C5-03 model has also been cancelled, according to Pocketnow, reporting that T-Mobile USA had something to do with this. The device was supposed to debut locally as Nuron 2.
The first Nuron model was a rebranded Nokia 5230 and in spite of the C5-03 already being available on many markets, the States are deprived of it. The handset is pretty appealing with a 3.2 inch touchscreen, but the old Symbian S60 5th edition platform might have kept some users from buying this unit.
This comes as a follow-up to Nokia’s worsening situation in North America, where the mobile juggernaut sold a mere 3.2 million units in Q3 2010, compared to the 11.6 million in Latin America. NA shipments stand for less than 3 of Nokia’s international sales.
