Nokia has announced the 3620, a new smart phone that is very similar to its popular 3650. However, the new model will use a better screen and drop the unusual arrangement of keys on the keypad.
The Nokia 3620 will run the Series 60 version of the Symbian OS and will come with applications to store contacts, calendar, and to-do information. It will also have a built-in web browser and email access. It will be able to run Java applications, too.
It will offer a 65,500 color display, while the 3650’s screen can display only 4,096 colors. It will also have a VGA camera for still picture and video capture, a video player, and support multimedia messaging (MMS).
It will include Bluetooth and polyphonic ringtones. It will have a memory card slot and ship with a 16 MB card with additional applications.
The Nokia 3620 will run on GSM/GPRS 850/1900 wireless networks and is intended primarily for the Americas. The company also announced the 3660, which is essentially the same as the 3620 but will use GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 and is primarily for the European, Middle-East, and Asia Pacific markets.
Shipping is expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2003.
