Considered at the time to be a 'business' phone, the Nokia 3650 was a game-changer to Nokia's device principles. The phone was heavy to accommodate a larger battery, but was sleek in design and thinner than most of the other phones on the market at the time. The rounded bottom fit comfortably in the palm of one's hand, but the keypad layout was strange and resembled a 1950's rotary phone dial. It took those who were used to the traditional texting principles a while to adjust to the new layout.
Released in 2003, this was the phone everyone wanted but could scarcely afford. Running the Symbian Series 60 software, it included document editing, mobile Web browsing -- which back then was still in its infancy -- and a large 176 x 206 pixel thin-film transistor (TFT) display.
