Apr 27 2005 - 10:08 PM ET | Nokia, Rumor
The FCC has approved (FCC ID QMNRM-18) the Nokia 6638, the first CDMA Series 60 phone. Visually, it looks just like the Nokia 6630 with the addition of a [very long] antenna. Since the 6638 is a CDMA handset, Nokia is most likely aiming for a US release. Features are typical for a Series 60 smartphone: * 176 x 208 pixel 65K color display * Bluetooth * MMC slot Interestingly enough, video calling is mentioned in the draft manual posted on the FCC site. While EV-DO is not mentioned, video calling would need to use it. It's also possible that the video calling section is left over from the 6630 manual. Click on photo at right to zoom. More photos of the Nokia 6638 are available below, including a shot of its extra large antenna extended. nokia-6638-tall.jpg nokia-6638-back.jpg
