The 6630 is very nice, but you might want to wait for the 6680 which is the followup - this is very new and better than the 6630 in several respects, smaller, faster, lighter, no bulge, better camera etc.

It will be out sometime in the new year, currently only Nokia staff know about it, there is nothing else out there!

I am hoping to post more details soon.

Do a WHOIS lookup for the domain nokia6680.com for proof!

there are always better phones coming... and you can buy a new one every month,one for better camera,another for better standby time,display,and so on... N 6630 is fast,small,and good enough... i bought it two weeks ago and iam very satisfied and i dont want to buy a new phone in the cause of fact,that there is no 3G in my country yet... and untill that i dont need an another device,because i cant use all the features and possibilities,if there is "only" GSM/GPRS/EDGE,but no W-CDMA/UMTS/ :D have a nice day...

I am happy to hear this, because I think the 6630 is a very ugly phone!
Nice features, and fast yes, but still lacking FM-Radio, and the round
shape at the bottom is making it look very weird and ugly.

Too bad, but am gonna wait for the 6680!! :)

Built for work? WHy didn't they then leave out the MP3-player, the RealONE-player
with audio/video-streaming capabilites. Why did they not exclude the embedded
games in the phone? And why did they have to make it a stereo-phone if it is
only built for work??

That argument of yours does not hold water!!! ;)

but they did; at least mine didn't have any. not that i'd miss them, but it was strange: a nokia cellular without snake :-O

-pete

ps. what comes to this phone being 'for work': nokia actually does categorize this as 'business class' phone..

What I've heard from the 6680 is that it'll be a budget version of the 6630. So I doubt that it will be wise to wait :D

Hi!..

yep.. i agree with you... iīll wait the next one...

i have a 7610 right now, and itīs smaller and lighter than 6630...
so why to go back to that prototypes models? just to get EDGE? ... 6630 itīs the very first S60 3G on the market (the bulky one)... like the 7650 was the first S60 2.5G in the market... and as you can see.. 7650 was the first and the worst one... but nice till 6600 came out... well... 6630 itīs the first one again... nice... but iīll wait for the shinker and lighter version... may be better design, look and feel... and because the 6630 (US$550 right now) will be hard to sell when all see the new one (6680 may be)... at relative same price... all tryed to sell 7650 at rassonable price after 6600 was realeased, not too easy.

so.. i think that i can stand by for that all new feactures (and may be better ones), and wait for a bigger jump buying one of the next 20 models (all using 13.mpx cam) that Nokia will realase next year...

7610 itīs an amazing phone talking about small and lighter vs feactures ...

thanks!

cya!

If you can't afford the price, won't use it's features, and you think the sizing is too big for you, then don't buy it.

BTW, the form factor difference with the 7610 is only:
+9 grams
+1.4mm length
+7mm width
+2.3mm thick
So really, a little more than 2/3 of a centimeter wider is all it is.

And for the price and size it is a LOT faster at running apps, has a much improved camera (not just high rez), is stereo, and is 3G. For these reasons the 6630 looks like a great phone for me at this time.

There will be always be a better one about to come out as with all technology. When the 6680 is released there will be rumors of a nokia with 2+ megapixel, two cameras, maybe a touchscreen, a built in flash, and wifi. And then we will be waiting for that too.

AEFOX,the 6630 beats the 7610 in every aspect so don't even try to compare them(I'm not talking aesthetics here).

BTW:I still believe the 7650 has the best ergonomics for a Series 60 smartphone.

I wouldn't class the 6630 as a work phone because a work phone has to properly support voice dialling. And the 6630 only allows one voice tag per contact, which isn't proper support, IMHO. I need a tag for each of work, mobile and home (at least).

(I read that the 6630 only has one tag per contact in the PDF manual - I don't actually have a 6630. Would love to be proved wrong).

Who is comparing that GhostDog? ...

i was just saying that iīll wait the next one of 6630 generation...

iīll wait the next one that BEAT 6630 in every aspect...

and BTW... 6630 will suffer some hardware changes and software (ROM)
so... if you want to get a real fixed final version for 6630 buy it at the end of January 2005 ...

i read that in a recent review look ... " ... I advise to wait with buying Nokia 6630 till the next year, for example, till the end of January. There are several reasons. The first and the main one is that the device though working stable has some software mistakes for the moment. The second reason is not so evident, hardware part will be changed a bit and thus renewing the software later won't be so smooth for the device. "

there will be only one change:changing of the voltage of RS-MMC,but nothing else will be changed in the Nokia 6630 .... ROM,and the second camera will be in the "I" version,which will bea available maybe in the middle of the next year....

but if you want to buy Nokia 6630,than its not important uf you buy it right now,or january 2005,there will be only one change.... and of course,not all the onformation from www.mobile-review.com are really true....

Two cameras is standard fare for 3G phones - Nokia seem to like doing 3G phones without the second camera though (ie no video conferencing with Nokia 3G phones, stupid). Its about time that Nokia caught up with everyone else.

Its typical of them (Nokia) to get late to the party and them claim all the credit ... ;)

there is a choice of video stand..... and Nokia made an phone which is more for GSM/GPRS/EDGE,than for UMTS,because there are only some countries with only some cities where 3G services are available,and in 3G tha bettery lives only for 2,5hour /if browsing the web/ :D

all i see on this thread is a couple of people going on about how wonderful the 6680 is!

the 6630 is better than any phone nokia has turned out, its not bulky to say ur going to wait for the next phone because its better is pathetic, of course it is thats the idea so dont compare the 6630 to a phone which does not even exsist yet when the 6630 does!

I just bought one 6630 for myself..and it really rocks with its cool feature.. previously I have 7610...it was also good, but not stereo...nothing wrong, buying 6630 right now...if u're mobile lover....u may buy 6680 later, in exchange...but why to wait for stupid things..u ain't looking for a bride, it is just a mobile....for sure, after few years, mobile will most advanced devices, but r u going to wait for them...or going to be happy for now, what r u getting rite now..So be satisfied, what u get now.....!!

Well having just got my 6630 I must say it is the best series 60 Nokia yet, so much quicker than my 7610 and the picture quality is fantastic, really glad I got one now

I agree, glad I got one from Vodafone for nothing :) The only big disadvantage is the lack of compatible flash memory, hopefully that will change in the new year!

Hi Friends,N6630 has an optional headset HS-2R, which fits well and the Stereo FM is damn good & Cool!!
So we have enough stuff with N6630,only we need some new software as there is new Symbian v8.0.
