Nokia 6650 is a mobile phone developed by Nokia. It was the company's first 3G phone, first leaked in June 2002[1][2] and eventually unveiled on 26 September 2002.[3] It was also the first device supporting the 3G W-CDMA 2100 MHz band.[4]

A 1900 MHz version known as the 6651 was released for the North American market soon after. Alongside the jointly-launched Motorola A845, the pair were the first UMTS 3G phones launched in America, on the short-lived AT&T Wireless UMTS network (the network later shut down, as part of the merger with Cingular Wireless - which eventually debuted its own 3G UMTS network). As a result, the Nokia 6651 was one of only two phones that ever launched on the AT&T Wireless 3G network.[5]

Its appearance is very similar to that of Nokia 6100, but with a larger screen and external antenna (it was the last Nokia candybar phone with an external one). The 6650 uses the Nokia Series 40 platform, and is equipped with a VGA camera and supports Java ME applications. The device has 4096 colours and features Bluetooth, Infrared and a WAP browser.[3][6]
