Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Nokia today starts shipping the Nokia 3650, its new flagship Symbian/S60 camera phone, worldwide.

The phone has more features than the 7650 - a memory card slot for games and video, video recording and playback, and longer battery life - 4 hours talk time and 8 days standby. And it's tri-band GSM, meaning that Europeans can, unlike the 7650, use it in the US. On the downside it's a bit "plasticky", but hey, the consumers will love it.

So how much will it cost? Nokia does not release suggested prices, deferring instead to the retailer/operators. Our usual font of wisdom on this front, Carphone Warehouse, has not fixed a price yet - the 3650 merely makes an appearance in the "coming soon" section of next month's catalogue. A quick scan of the Web suggests that the 3650, presumably without a contract, a goes for US$450-$500, in east Asia.

Here is Nokia's press release and here is our story from last September on the 3650 announcement. You wanna see what it looks like? Here. ®
