    Re: noika phone series

    no, the starting prefix of the number does NOT preclude the series ..

    while, 6600 is series 60, the 6100 and 6800 are both series 40, as well as
    many other examples ..

    nokia's website is about the only reference to what model is what ..

    Series 30/40/60/80/90 are user interface (UI) categories which define the
    minimum hardware, software and user interface features and requirements,
    such as screen resolution in pixels, different kind of menu and other
    buttons, navigational controllers, ITU-T standard keypads or a QWERTY
    keyboard, minimum memory requirements and so on.

    Nokia describes for example the Series 60 from the UIQ aspect this way:

    "With a full-color, 176 x 208 pixel screen, Series 60 displays eight lines
    of text in messaging applications and full QCIF images. Browsers can have up
    to seven lines of text, while other applications have six plus a
    header/status line. Series 60 has extra keys to facilitate application
    management and alphanumeric entry. These include the standard dual softkeys,
    as well as an application key and a Clear key. Because the display allows a
    true menu grid and sophisticated applications, navigation may also include
    the use of five-way, joystick-like scrolling. Series 60 supports a full
    personal information manager and a variety of user-specific
    personalizations."

    In short, I'd describe different Serieses this way:

    - Series 30/40 are meant for small devices with a small colour screen and
    support for Java applications. Screen size minimum is 128 x 128 pixels.
    - Series 60 is Nokia's smartphone platfrom built on the Symbian OS
    (operating system). Screen resolution is 176 x 208 pixels minimum and there
    are plenty of other requirements for S60 devices too. Symbian devices
    support more sophisticated applications than Series 30/40 devices. Although
    it could be possible that one day Nokia has a Symbian device with the Series
    40 UI.
    - Series 80 is the Nokia Communicator (currently 9210/9290/9500 models)
    user interface with 640 x 200 pixels screen size and QWERTY keyboard. This
    is also built on the Symbian OS.
    - Series 90 is currently the media terminal UI for the Nokia 7700 which is
    based on a touch screen user interface and 640 x 320 pixels screen size.
    This is built on the Symbian OS too.

    The model number of the phone does not tell it's UI category. Current Series
    60 models are at least Nokia 3650/3660/3620/6600/6620/7650/N-Gage.
