The Nokia 3650 uses GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) technology and the Symbian operating system to power its multimedia capabilities. The 3650 can capture moving or still images and send them to other phones equipped with MMS (Multimedia Messaging) technology and can display 4,096 colours.
Users can add games and third-party applications written in the Java programming language to the 3650. It weighs 130 grams, comes with 4Mbytes of internal memory, and its lithium ion battery can last for four hours of straight conversation, or eight days in standby mode on a single charge. The 3650 also supports Bluetooth, the short-range wireless LAN technology.
The 3650 will be available worldwide early next year and is expected to cost €450 (£285), a Nokia spokesman said. It will be the first Nokia phone with imaging technology to be offered to the North American mobile market.
A second new model, the 3510i, will also support Java applications, MMS and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol). It will ship with a calendar, preinstalled Java games, and also operate on GSM networks.
Nokia plans to make the 3510i available in Europe and Africa later this year, where it will cost between €200 (£127) and €300 (£190).
