Nokia Releases 3 New S40 Devices With Semi-Familiar Model Numbers

by Darla Mack

It is quite rare that Nokia enthusiasts can think back to recycled model numbers, but since the 3660 and 6600 were the 2 most popular devices (not to mention the first carrier supported S60's to hit the US market) it's quite obvious that they are memorable.  They were breakthrough devices for many. But this is one of those instances where we say "out with the old and in with the new".

Nokia has released 3 new sexy devices and even though the model numbers might ring a bell, these devices are not S60.

Introducing the 6600 Slide, 6600 Fold and the 3660 Slide. 


Nokia 6600 fold – Smart and sophisticated looks
6600fold_2 With one touch of a button, the elegant Nokia 6600 fold smoothly opens to reveal a stunningly bright 2.13’’ OLED screen displaying up to 16 million colors. With its seamless design, the signature “smooth back” of the Nokia 6600 fold creates a comfortable contour when open, and remains subtle and compact when closed. The high-gloss surface of the Nokia 6600 fold comes to life when tapped twice to “wake up” the hidden outer display that reveals time, incoming messages, missed calls and more. A double tap on the Nokia 6600 fold also snoozes alerts and silences or rejects incoming phone calls. With a set of contemporary mobile features that belie its compact size, the Nokia 6600 fold is proof positive that beauty can be far more than skin deep. 3G technology allows for fast and easy sharing of pictures and videos snapped with the integrated 2 megapixel camera with double LED flash or swift access to Internet services such as Yahoo! Go or Flickr. The Nokia 6600 fold easily fits into a pocket or a handbag and has an estimated retail price of 275 EUR excluding taxes and subsidies.

Nokia 6600 slide – Compact and balanced

6600slide Being one of Nokia’s smallest sliders to date, the Nokia 6600 slide stays true to its name as it smoothly glides open in the hand. The appearance of the Nokia 6600 slide with its glossy, high-quality steel covers and aluminium center key constitute both understated elegance as well as visual simplicity. Its well-balanced feature set is created to be exciting and intuitive. Tapping the Nokia 6600 slide twice conveniently indicates time, snoozes, alerts and silences or rejects incoming phone calls. The 3.2 megapixel camera takes high quality pictures and videos that can be shared with others via Internet services or multimedia message - directly from the photo menu. The large 2.2” QVGA display with 16 million colors also makes it easy to find your way around town, thanks to the integrated Nokia Maps application which can be enhanced with an optional Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W and separate navigation license. The slim, lightweight Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W features an innovative design that takes Bluetooth navigation beyond the car and into the hands of urban trekkers and leisure travelers. The Nokia 6600 slide has an estimated retail price of 250 EUR excluding taxes and subsidies.

Nokia 3600 slide – Contemporary combination

3600slide The Nokia 3600 slide aims to win hearts with a blend of tasteful colors, materials and tactile finishes, and minds with a full range of the latest features. Soft ceramic paint and metal combined with high gloss surfaces and gradated colors to make the Nokia 3600 slide beautiful to both touch and see. The Nokia 3600 slide is equally beautiful to hear as it is the first Nokia product to feature background noise cancellation. With a builtin music player the Nokia 3600 slide offers up to 3000 favorite songs on an optional 4 microSD card. The small, ergonomically shaped Nokia 3600 slide also delivers a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and 2 LED flash and is excellent for taking pictures or videos, even in dim lighting conditions. The TV-out feature, which conveniently connects the Nokia 3600 slide to most television sets, ensures quick and easy sharing of pictures and videos.  While the beauty of the Nokia 3600 slide will tell the world about its owner, the pre-installed Nokia  application with an optional Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W will tell the owner a lot about the world they are in. The Nokia Maps application holds more than 15 million points of interests, including restaurants, shops, hotels and more. The Nokia 3600 slide has an estimated retail price of 175 EUR excluding taxes and subsidies.
