Siemens M75

 Siemens M75 Front Discontinued
9th March 2005

Siemens gave us a sneak preview of the M75 a few weeks ago without much detail on the technical specification, but now we have it and frankly it's quite impressive.

You can view the M75 pretty much as a ruggedised CX75 as it is largely identical in terms of hardware. What does set the M75 apart though is the shock-resistant housing, made up of a rubber case and metal chassis. This certainly adds to the size and weight of the M75, but it does give it a pleasingly rugged look.

 Siemens M75 back Technical highlights are a 132x176 pixel TFT display in 262,000 colours, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, expandable memory using RSMMC cards, audio and video playback (including MP3s), email client, WAP 2.0 browser, push-to-talk, 3D enhanced Java gaming and some other features such as a weather application and micro-payment support.

The Siemens M75 is a tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 device with GPRS. External connectivity is through Bluetooth, USB cable or infra-red. Physical size is 111x52x21mm and 110 grams which is quite large, mostly because of the added protection. Talktime is up 5 hours with around 10 days standby.

It's actually a very good handset in terms of specification, quite aside from the handset's rugged looks. The biggest omission we can see is the lack of a FM radio, which we think is a serious flaw in this handset with is designed to be used outdoors, after all. This is certainly a chunky handset, and really the antithesis of the CL75 "girlie" phone, but we rather like it.

Siemens say that the M75 will be available from June 2005 in "Volcano Black" and our favourite, "Safari Green" (pictured)
