The 6100 was one of the smallest phones ever -- it weighed just 2.8 ounces (76 grams) -- and was built on the success of the 8210. Though it had an interchangeable faceplate, the phone's feature set offered few goodies beyond the basics. A successor model, the 3100, offered a revamped design with rubber keys combined into unbroken rows. The same year, Nokia released the almost-identical 6650 with an external antenna and 3G network support.
This basic design was used multiple times across the company's product line during the period. Though they sported their own design elements, the 7250, 8310, 7210, and 6510 largely resembled each other.
