Design

The C1000 is a candy bar mobile phone. The phone looks like a color handset but its not, it has a color background screen with black font. The background screen cannot be changed. The font could have been a bit bold but that is not a major issue. The only major issue i experienced was with the keypad. The keys are hard to press. So if you are a heavy sms user, you should try the keypad out before purchasing.

Organizer and extras

Date, time
Alarm clock
Calculator
Games : Snake, Tetris

Conclusion

The C100 sells for Rs. 1400 with one year warranty. It comes with Tata Indicom Go Active prepaid scheme which has two years incoming free, 2000 minutes Tata to Tata free and Rs. 50 talktime. At such a low price you cannot complain much but if the keypad was a bit soft this phone would have been a winner.
