7650

No ...Nokia itself doesn't manufacture...hardly anything itself,
The 7650 is not made in Finland, that I know.
I would want to know in which country and by whom it is made.
I first beliewed it is made in Hungary by Elcoteq Ltd but this phone is not made by them.

...well, my box says 'Made in Finland', so I assume
mine IS made here. By Elcoteq, Nokia or whoever, BUT in Finland.

...I have the box too...
The label "made in finland" (or in any other country) doesn't actually mean that the device itself is made in the country mentioned.
Many companies that for example produce their products in former
East-European countries (most Nokia phones) want to hide this fact.

So the planning of a new product and packing and even transportation can be considered a part of the production line and if these together
can be calculated to cost over 50 % of the price the company in some cases get the right to use the "made in Finland" or "made in Germany"
eventhough the actual device would be assembeled in Poland.

...guess we're both right

I quote:" The foundation stone of Nokia´s new mobile phone factory in Komaróm, Hungary, was laid today.

As announced in July, 1998, Nokia will invest close to FIM 1 billion in the new plant, together with the expansion of mobile phone production capacity at the Salo plant in Finland.. Nokia Display Products supplies its products to international markets from its monitor factory based in Pécs. Altogether Nokia employs more than 1,600 people in Hungary.

Out of interest does it matter where the hell they manufacture it, as long as they aren't using kids in sweat shops like Nike who cares?

The Microchips and circuit boards are manufacturered by ARM in the UK.
The batteries are made in the Czech Republic.
The memory chips are manufactured in either Singapore or Taiwan.

As to where it is all put together... I believe it is the Salo plant in Finland.

"MADE BY NOKIA" are APAC manufactured phones, China or Korea. They suffer of a lot of problems, cold joints, etc. I always avoid to buy a Nokia if it says that on the label. Germany or Finland, those have less problems.
