    Design (3650)

    The Nokia 3650 is really like no other when it comes to design. It's the first cell phone I've seen that has the circular keypad that looks great, and once you get use to it, can be very functional. All buttons are excellently placed. The Send and End buttons are conveniently right near the 1 and 0 keys, and the clear button is on the right side of the 9. There's also a edit button, that is rarely used, but can be found right next to the 2. In the middle of the keypad, you'll find the * and # buttons, as well as the menu button. Very wisely placed. Also in the middle, you'll find the navigational key, which makes it very easy to play games, browse through menus, etc. On top of that, you'll find the two shortcut buttons.

    The 3650 is unlike any phone I've had any experience with; there are no buttons on either side of the 3650. You will find the power button, in Nokia tradition, on top. Unlike most other Nokia phones, the power button is very easy to press.

    On the left side of the phone, you'll see the IR/Bluetooth connection area. That's the only functional thing on either side of the phone.

    Side View of the Nokia 3650

    On the back, you'll find the camera. More and more phones have cameras these days, even the freebee phones that come with new service activation. Still, most phones don't have a camera, and it sure does stand out. Also on the back you'll find the removable back cover to reveal the battery, SIM card, and MMC card. Finally on the back, you may notice the internal antenna right above (to the left) of the camera.

    On the bottom of the phone, you'll find the power port, as well as the headset port. There's also a little connector for a USB data cable that is not included in the package.

    Unlike the P800, the Nokia phone features interchangeable faceplates that come in a wide variety of colors. My unit had a silvery colored one.

    Despite the controversy, the Nokia 3650 is a beautiful phone that is a complete and total attention-getter, as well as a great conversation piece.
