The Nokia C3-01 Gold Edition Gets the Midas Touch Treatment

— August 28, 2011 — Tech
While the Nokia C3-01 Gold Edition is an older model and not as advanced as a smartphone, it certainly is worth a lot more than what's out there.

If you haven't guessed already, the Nokia C3-01 Gold Edition is made from the exact material that the name indicates. When I say gold, I don't mean the gold leaf that's normally sprinkled; this is actually plated with 18 karats of the material. As for the technical specs, the company has added a 1 GHz processor to this model, a quad-band GSM, a 5-MP camera, Bluetooth and the typical goodies one would expect in a cell phone these days.

The Nokia C3-01 Gold Edition is intended to be primarily for Eastern European and Middle Eastern markets. But who knows, it may make its way to North American markets soon.
