Nokia ships 3650 imaging phone

Launched at the Nokia Totally Board event in September 2002 in France, the tri-band (GSM 900/1800/1900) Nokia 3650 is optimized for an easy and enjoyable imaging experience. The device was recently selected as an Innovations 2003 winner at the 2003 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

“Bringing the Nokia 3650 to markets such as North America, reflects Nokia’s determination to offer a superior mobile imaging experience for a wide base of consumers”, said Juha Putkiranta, Senior Vice President, Imaging Business Unit. “In addition to enabling both picture and video communication for mobile users, the Nokia 3650 also offers Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) functionality with its extensive email support, calendar and contacts synchronization for most popular email and personal information management applications, and numerous add-on software.”
 
The Nokia 3650 comes with an integrated VGA camera, a large 176×208 pixel color display with 4096 colors, and a unique circular keypad with a 5-way scroll key. It also incorporates a video recorder for capturing video clips, as well as RealOne Player for downloading, playing, and real-time streaming of video and audio content. The multimedia messaging (MMS) functionality allows users to send video clips, images, text and sound to compatible MMS-enabled phones or to any e-mail address. The Nokia 3650 phone also supports all major e-mail protocols.
 
The XHTML browser in the device sets a new reference for using mobile services, such as Lonely Planet’s interactive travel guide optimized for the Nokia 3650. The visually rich service including numerous color pictures offers travel information on 38 cities around the world, helping the mobile travelers to be updated on the latest tips on food, accommodation and sights while on the go.

Already today, there are hundreds of add-on software applications available for the Series 60 devices making it possible for the users to enhance their devices with new content and applications.
