Second touch-enabled S40: Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type announced

Nokia is getting serious about touch on S40 - they just announced the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type, the second touch enabled S40. It's got a stainless steel body like the 6700 classic, 5MP camera, 3G and adds Wi-Fi to the mix.
Of course, the key difference between the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type and 6700 classic is the touch part - the new C3-01 has a 2.4" touchscreen, like it's more music-minded sibling - the Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type. It has a 12-key hardware keypad too.

Like the X3-02, the Nokia C3 Touch and Type has some of the best features ever on a Series 40 device. A 5MP camera with flash and Wi-Fi make it an S40 royalty. It's got quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity and also 3G with HSPA. The internal memory is expandable by microSD cards up to 32GB.
On the software side, the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type has Twitter and Facebook integration, the latest Nokia Messaging and email along with Ovi Store access.
The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type has a slim stainless steel body - it measures 111 x 47.5 x 11mm. It should offer a lot of bang for the buck - it's expected to cost 145 euro (190 US dollars) before taxes and subsidies. It will ship in the fourth quarter of this year.
