I don't see that this is advertisement. I have the mobile phone mentioned, and I find that this article is in no way advertising the phone, compared to some entries for other products.

Neither do I; it's as factual and plain as any other phone article. The "Known problems" section needs polishing, though. arielCo 19:22, 31 July 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arielco (talkcontribs)

Smartphone/feature phone[edit]

Per True Tech Talk Time request in history;

The C3 does appear to fit the definition of 'feature phone' rather then smart phone. The inclusion of Wifi and a webbrowser don't seem to make it a smart phone - the definition of feature phone is of a 'dumb phone' with several extra hardware features such as a Wifi and GPS, and mobile webbrowsers have been appearing on even very low end phones such as entry level Nokia flipphones. These features alone don't seem to justify labeling it as a smart phone. The Ovi store itself is just a streamlined website for downloading Java applets - 3rd party websites like this have existed for a long time.

The Wikipedia definition of Smartphone specifies a phone that runs a mobile operating system - something like Symbian or better which provides a proper API for use by installed native applications, and ideally some form of multitasking. While the interface is improved the C3 still runs the S40 software on top of the phone firmware, rather then a full blown operating system. This limits expansion to either Java applets or an complete replacement (update) of the S40 software. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.179.106.161 (talk) 12:20, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Word Usage[edit]

We have a section here, labeled "Issues." This has become a complete garbage can word, possibly meaning problems, maladjustment, concerns, difficulties, illegitimate complaints, and bad feelings. Perhaps, we are grownups here and can use the word we really mean. Maybe we could say "Functional Limitations" or "Special Features not found on similar priced models" and we'd have accomplished something, without trashing the language. For now, I'm content to allow issues to remain as blood on the floor, in the Old Testament sense.Homebuilding (talk) 04:15, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
