The Nokia 3360 is the replacement for
the popular Nokia 3650 camera phone, in
a similar physical package but with some
useful enhancements to make it a better
The first thing to notice is that the
Nokia 3660 sports a more conventional keypad
arrangement than the 3650, but other than
that it looks pretty similar with an identical
weight of 130 grams and measuring 130x57x26mm
(picture is approximate size when displayed
on a 72dpi monitor).
One of the strengths of the old phone
was the large colour screen at 176x208 pixels.
The Nokia 3660 improves on the old screen
by being in 65,000 colours instead of the
4,000 on the old one, especially useful
when displaying pictures.
The camera on the Nokia 3660 is
basically the same as the 3650, boasting
a decent 640x480 resolution, plus a
video capture and playback facility.
In addition, the Nokia 3660 is a tri-band
GSM phone - so it can work pretty much anywhere,
it supports GPRS and HSCSD data connections,
has an XHTML browser, email support, MMS
and other messaging options. Also, the Nokia
3660 supports Bluetooth and infra-red connections.
Video playback is a strong point, supporting
MPEG-4, RealOne and other formats. The Nokia
3660 supports MIDI and WAV polyphonic ringtones,
plus a range of Java and Symbian games to
keep you amused for hours. Internal memory
is just 3.4Mb, but there is an add-in 64Mb
card which looks useful if you want to record
or play back video clips.
Talktime on the Nokia 3660's standard
battery is 2 to 4 hours and standby is 150
hours to 200 hours.
All-in-all the Nokia 3660 is a capable
camera phone, but it's not a huge improvement
over the 3650.. on the other hand, the 3650
was always going to be a hard act to follow.
