Nokia has unveiled three social networking-focused handsets, one day after Microsoft launched its own Kin social phone platform.

The Nokia C3 (pictured) is the vendor’s first Series 40 device to feature a QWERTY keyboard. It allows for Facebook, Twitter, and other network access directly from the home page. It also features Ovi Mail, Ovi Chat, Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel camera, and a 2.4-inch screen. It will be available in a variety of colors.

The Nokia C6 runs full-blown Symbian, and features a 3.2-inch touch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also includes a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash, Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation, and access to Nokia’s Ovi Store for browsing, buying, and downloading thousands of third-party apps, assuming it works.

Finally, the Nokia E5 is a business-focused smartphone in the vein of the E72. It features numerous productivity apps, Mail for Exchange, and Lotus Notes Traveler, plus access to the Ovi Store.

All three are due for release in the second and third quarters overseas; no word yet on U.S. versions. But Nokia seems to have finally figured out how to get carriers to subsidize its handsets; my money is on at least one of these appearing here.
