Nokia CDMA Smartphone Surfaces
Apr 29, 2005, 2:23 PM by (staff)
The FCC this week approved the Nokia 6638, Nokia's first Series 60 smartphone for CDMA networks. The phone sports a similar appearance to the Nokia 6630 3G phone for Europe and Asia, but contains completely different internals and slightly re-arranged side and function keys, as well as unique features for the U.S. market, such as an LED camera flash, an extendable antenna, a 2.5 mm headset jack, and E-911 capability. The 6638 is also Nokia's first phone with a full-size SD card slot; Nokia has previously used MMC and RS-MMC formats, although it announced support for the SD format last September. It is not clear which carrier will receive the 6638. The extendable antenna and lack of analog mode would be consistent with recent phones for Verizon, but the draft user manual includes multiple references to Java, the application standard used by Sprint. It is not clear if the phone will support EV-DO, although it does not appear to contain a Qualcomm chipset, and Nokia by most accounts does not yet have an EV-DO chipset of their own.

Main need is video playback and phone usage.
