Belting 3650 Review

You may think it looks like a toy, I may think it looks like a toy, but inside, it's a powerhouse! This review is clearly written by someone who has been blow away by the phone! Maybe it shows just how far behind the rest of us the US is, but reading such positive comments from a place where anything without a Microsoft logo is disregarded as pointless (or 'bugfart' as they like to say)....

The 3650 is clearly a networked pocket computer, a portable mesh node, a reference platform for developers

But Nokia has exposed and documented the phone’s networking and graphical features to developers in great detail, and developers can grab the tools and documentation online. The efficient Java run-time encourages the kind of small-scale casual and in-house development that leads to innovation, while the C++ tools hit the performance targets required by commercial software.
Shame it's so butt ugly (IMHO).

It's tri-band, so works in the US.

(7650 is 800/1800 only, 3650 adds 1900)

Mobile technology in America is still so backward that they only make phone calls on the phones. 7650 as a first smartphone is a huge step forward. Now imagine we went from phones without SMS to devices like the 7650 or the 3650 we'd be raving about it too.

Amen to that...

Hopefully one of the other Series 60 OS partners might be able to whip up a phone a bit more pleasant to the eye. I love my 7650 but I need something definitely that has some kind of memory slot now. Too many goods apps for the phone !
