The Nokia 3600/3650 (triband GSM 850/1800/1900 MHz) was the first Symbian Series 60 smartphone to appear in American markets. It was also the first phone with an integrated camera announced for the North American market.[1]

One of the common complaints of the Nokia 3600/3650 was its unique circular keypad. Many owners wanted a Series 60 device with a conventional keypad, however some stated that the rotary style keypad made text messaging easier and faster.

The Nokia 3600 and 3650 was replaced with the Nokia 3620 (GSM 850/1900) and the Nokia 3660 (GSM 900/1800/1900) respectively, both of which feature a conventional keypad and an improved 16-bit color display.

Nokia 3620/3660[edit]

The Nokia 3620 and 3660 are successors of the Nokia 3650 smartphone. Both run on Nokia Series 60 version 1.x (and the Symbian operating system).

Changes from the 3600/3650 include a conventional keypad (as opposed to the 3650's circular keypad [1]), and a 16-bit display (as opposed to the 3650's 12-bit display).

Both are basically the same phone, except that the Nokia 3620, being targeted at the US market, operates on GSM 850/1900, while the Nokia 3660, a European phone, operates on GSM 900/1800/1900.

Both of them use an ARM compatible main CPU (ARM4T architecture) running at 104 MHz.

In the United States, the 3620 was carried by AT&T Wireless and Dobson Communications, while the 3660 was carried by T-Mobile USA.

The replacement for the Nokia 3660 is the Nokia 3230. The 3620 does not have an official replacement, although it was replaced by the Nokia 6620 in AT&T/Cingular's lineup after the merger between AT&T Wireless and Cingular.
