Published by at

Nokia has announced the 6650, an S60 phone which will be available exclusively to T-Mobile International Customers. The 6650 has a 2 megapixel camera (with LED flash), integrated AGPS, a microSD card slot to supplement the 30MB of internal memory, FM radio and HSDPA connectivity. Rather than using Nokia's own Ovi services it will use T-Mobile services. The 6650 will be available in the third quarter on a number of European T-Mobile networks. More details below.

Key points about the phone

  • microSD card slot with support for SDHC cards (currently available in capacities up to 12 GB)
