The first Nokia with clamshell design was announced in the beginning of 2004 – the 7200. Since them Nokia announced several other like 6255i, 6260 and 6170, but all those are yet to be offered from a major US carrier.

Nokia 3200 does not betray the tradition of bar style phones. Relatively small, the phone fitted well in my hands, and it is light enough to be worn in your shirt's pockets, but it a little bit angular for my taste. The front and back faceplates are actually clear plastic covers with colored templates inserted inside. The 3200 I used for testing was for AT&T wireless and came with two additional sets of templates. If you feel artistic enough you can cut your own paper templates (even thought the original ones are plastic) and insert them in the covers for a complete customization. Overall this is a smart idea if you are still into the faceplate individualization fad. I think that unfortunately the time of faceplates has passed.

The keys are the other area Nokia is trying to stand out. 3200 has a total of only 9 buttons, compared to the normal keypad of around 15-17 keys. This reduction is accomplished by making each key do double function – the first key on the left is #1 if pushed on the top and #4 is pushed at the bottom. Just by explaining it I am sure I lot of people will not be thrilled by this idea, as I was not originally. After using it for a while I realized it is not that bad – Nokia has made them bigger since they are less and after little adaptation it was not harder to use them compared to regular ones. The keypad is illuminated with bright white light. Speaking of light, kudos to Nokia for installing two bright white LED at the bottom of the phone, serving the purpose of a flashlight. There is no dedicated key for the flashlight activation- you have to press #7 and hold it for 2 seconds. When you want to turn it off, press and hold again.

The phone has infrared but it does not have the usual small red windows for it. I had to turn the phone around several times until I figured that the IR received is on the top of the phone. The back side has a small opening for the camera's eye. The Pop-port interface and the charging port are at the bottom of the phone.
