Preview: Nokia 6650 Flip Phone

Look out, Nokia’s got a new entry in the flip phone market with the stainless-steel encased Nokia 6650. (announced at CeBIT 2008)

The 6650 is a fairly budget-priced handset that actually looks half-decent on the outside. When I say budget-priced, I mean in the general vicinity of 1 euro, which Nokia says will be the going rate for these babies in Germany and similarly priced in other areas in Europe. So what’s the catch?

The catch is that the phone will be exclusive to T-mobile, and you’ll need to sign up for a new contract to get one. It also doesn’t seem like this phone will be hitting American shores any time soon.

Now let’s talk about what you get for that 1 euro. Nokia’s 6650 features a stainless-steel casing – definitely a plus compared to the very plasticky 6263, the last exclusive T-mobile phone here in the States. And a 2.2″ QVGA screen, 2 megapixel camera with flash, microSD expandable memory, FM radio, dedicated music keys. Not bad for an el cheapo phone, right?

Now throw in an integrated GPS and HSDPA, and the Nokia 6650 manages to look like one hell of a decent phone. At a really, really, decent price.

Like the rest of Nokia’s phones previously announced, the 6650 will start shipping in the third quarter of 2008.
