The Nokia 3650 follows the Nokia 7650 imaging phone introduced in the European and Asia-Pacific markets earlier this year. Mobile phone users around the world can now enjoy easy-to-use and fun new mobile services, such as mobile games, multimedia messaging and video clips. In addition to enabling creative and fun features, the Nokia 3650 will also provide business users with a wide range of business applications, such as corporate e-mail access, calendar, to-do lists and contact applications.
Nokia's new imaging handset extends the company's support for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), a service which allows consumers and mobile business users to send messages combining text, images, graphics and sound in a single "rich" message. Nokia, the expert in mobility, supports MMS with a complete end-to-end solution for deployment that includes mobile network infrastructure, mobile terminals, content and service development tools and applications.
For developers, the combination of the Series 60 platform and the Nokia 3650 remove hurdles and create opportunities. "The Series 60 opens up the creative possibilities and the development environment is easy to use. It adds up to a breakthrough in mobile entertainment services," said John Chasey of Iomo. Iomo has taken advantage of the integrated camera on phones like the Nokia 3650 and the Nokia 7650, and the unique capabilities of the Series 60 platform to create an application that allows users to customize photos, store them, embed them in games and share them between mobile users.
The Nokia 3650 will be available globally in early 2003.
