The Nokia 6630 is a smartphone made by Nokia, using the Series 60 platform with the Symbian operating system, released in November 2004. It is an evolution of the 6600 and 6620 smartphones, supporting tri-band GSM (900, 1800, 1900 MHz) and W-CDMA (2100 MHz) mobile networks (Nokia's third W-CDMA phone after the prototype Nokia 6650 and the test type Nokia 7600). It also supports EDGE packet data connections.
The Nokia 6630 is the first phone ever that allows truly global roaming; previously GSM phones have had near-global coverage except in Japan where 2G phone standards were different. The 6630 automatically uses the W-CDMA network in Japan. 6650 and 7600 were also able to function in Japan, but they did not support GSM1900, often needed in the United States (the Nokia 6651 has the GSM 1900).
Pre-installed software includes an e-mail client, a rudimentary web browser and Microsoft Office file viewer. It also includes support for MP3 and AAC playback at full quality (44.1 kHz, 16 bits, stereo), and the retail package includes stereo headphones with hands-free functionality.
As opposed to the 6600 and 6620's VGA resolution digital camera (640×480), the 6630 has a 1.3-megapixel camera (1280×960). It can record video clips at the resolution of 176×144, using H.263 video compression. Like the 6600 and 6620, the 6630 has Bluetooth capabilities and has a 176×208 pixel 65,000-color TFT LCD. It comes with a hotswappable DV-RS-MMC card, capacity 32 or 64 MB depending on the region where the phone is sold. It is noteworthy that normal RS-MMC cards do not work with the 6630, it requires new dual-voltage (1.8 V and 3.0 V) RS-MMC cards. Currently it has been known to support up to 2 Gb from a DV-RS-MMC but may support more.
The main CPU in this smartphone is an ARM compatible chip (OMAP 1710 (ARMv5 architecture, Arm9 core)) running at 220 MHz, an unprecedented speed for a smartphone at its release. For comparison, the 6600 and N-Gage only run at 104 MHz.
It weighs 127 grams and measures at 110 mm × 60 mm × 21 mm.
During its development, the 6630 was nicknamed Charlie.
