Nokia Naming Conventions–All That You Should Know

N8? N72, X2, C2? Well these are all Nokia phone brand names and here is all you should know about the Nokia product naming convention

There are broadly 4 categories – N, E, X and C.

N stands for the New Technologies, the Ntertainment Series [i.e. N72, N95].
E – Enterprise Series meant for corporate use [like E71, E72]
X – Xpressmusic Series, targets youth and boasts of nifty multimedia features (one-click music/FM etc)
C – Consumer Series, i.e. the affordable ‘cheap’ phones (like C2).

What about the numbers?

The higher the number, the better the model is. The -00 or -01 are indicators that the model is updated or a sister model. So you can think that X2-01 is like X201 and X2-00 is older X200 if it makes it easier to remember [via].

Nokia’s naming convention basically defines the models based on targeted user segment and mashes up the price and supported features. The challenge ofcourse is with the launch of Symbian ^3 devices, it has become difficult to understand this naming convention (example N97 vs. N8?)

What’s your take on Nokia’s naming convention? Will they ever get into i-series? : D
