Well, Rafe had better get another category set up for AAER6 now that Nokia has announced (finally) a new Symbian based handset, the Nokia 3650.....

Some may say that this is what the 7650 wanted to be, some that it is what the 7650 should have been, others will just say that its another beast.

My main concern is that since the mobile world is going Java, and Java MIDP 2.0 is coming soon, shouldn't this 3650 be looking to that?

Anyway, yet another Symbian phone in the works and Microsoft is yet to get from the "we don't know if it will work" stage!
