Nokia 6650 brings 3G, live GPS to low-cost phones

Nokia 6650 T-Mobile

Nokia on Monday sought to democratize some of its higher-end technology by releasing its 6650 clamshell. Though a relatively basic flip phone on the surface, the device both supplies 3G Internet access over HSDPA as well as live, data-assisted GPS for route finding. The phone also stresses media playback with external touch controls for music, microSD for storage, and an FM radio for listening when digital content runs low. A 2-megapixel camera with flash also supplies better photography than most phones in the class.

In contrast to most Nokia phones, the 6650 is intended primarily for one carrier and will be available for several T-Mobile providers in Europe with features unique to the service, such as its online music services and its MyFaves unlimited calling list. Prices are likely to vary but may cost as little as 1 Euro with a standard subscription plan. Neither Nokia nor T-Mobile has said whether the 6650 will be available in the US.
