The future of mobile communications has begun: Equipped with a GPS module and navigation software, the SXG75 has everything necessary for innovative location-based services. Siemens’ new mobile presents multimedia at UMTS speed. This high-tech third-generation mobile telephony device will be on sale from as early as October 2005.
With its built-in FM radio and MP3 player, the mobile turns into a portable stereo system by attaching the superior speakers of the “Mobile Music Set” (optional accessory). The integrated 2-megapixel digital camera and the high-resolution QVGA colour display ensure high-quality visuals. A second CIF camera above the mobile’s display is a practical aid for video telephony. An organizer, Bluetooth, an email client, Multimedia Messaging (MMS), Instant Messaging and a fast XHTML web browser are also among the extensive features of this UMTS all-rounder.
With the integrated GPS module and navigation solution from Siemens VDO Automotive, finding the way is always straightforward with the SXG75 – even in a strange city. This high-tech mobile is already equipped with Assisted GPS functionality, making it capable of receiving future operator services. The SXG75 also supports location-based services such as restaurant tips, special offers in shops or guides to major cities. Other applications that are practical when on the move include the built-in translation aid for English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, as well as a photo editor.
UMTS can receive data onto a mobile with up to six times the speed of ISDN. Hence third-generation mobile phone networks permit fast access to information and high-volume data transfer irrespective of the user’s current location. Thus completely new applications such as video telephony, video streaming and audio streaming have suddenly become mobile. The SXG75 is ideally equipped for the fascinating world of mobile communications via UMTS and provides multimedia without compromise.
For high-quality photos and video recording, the SXG75 comes complete with an integrated 2-megapixel digital camera. A second CIF camera on the front of the casing supports video telephony. Movies and video clips can actually be played directly off the Internet via video streaming on the 2.2-inch TFT display (262,144 colours, 240 x 320 pixels). The integrated MP3 player and RDS-compatible FM radio receiver provide superb musical entertainment, while the active loudspeakers of the portable “IMS-700 Mobile Music Set” (Siemens original accessory) make listening a pleasure with their superb audio quality. A particularly useful feature is that the music is automatically muted as soon as an incoming phone call is signalled on the attached mobile. In addition, further music sources such as a PC, MP3 or CD player can be attached to the active speakers.
Be it Multimedia Messaging (MMS), e-mail client or Instant Messaging – the SXG75 caters to the entire spectrum of mobile multimedia communications. A fast (XHTML) web browser is provided for surfing the Internet, whilst Bluetooth technology allows the integrated organizer for appointments and contacts to be synchronized in a flash with MS-Outlook by running the Mobile Phone Manager application on a PC. The 128-MB internal phone memory (of which 64 MB available for use) provides more than enough space for images, music tracks, large data volumes and applications. Moreover, if additional memory capacity is required, interchangeable RS (reduced-sized) multimedia cards can be plugged into the phone.
Weighing a mere 134 grams and measuring 111.5 x 53 x 20 millimetres, the sleek design of this slim UMTS phone features light colours, clean-cut, striking shapes and a sophisticated appearance that accentuate its advanced technical capabilities and lend it a unique character.
Apart from the “IMS-700 Mobile Music Set” and an attachable camera flash, further original Siemens accessories are also available for the SXG75. These include a selection of convenient headsets such as Bluetooth headsets, a stereo headset (supplied with the SXG75) for superior digital speech quality as well as the “Purestyle” designer headset. Siemens’ hands-free Bluetooth solutions are practical for wireless in-car use.
Available in the colours “Metallic White” and “Metallic Black”, the SXG75 will be on sale in the premium price range from October 2005.
