Siemens CX75

 Siemens CX75 front Cancelled
9th March 2005

In the past, Siemens CX phones have tended to be on the lower end of the midrange of handsets with pretty standard features but now the CX75 brings in features previously only found in high-end handsets.

Firstly, there's a 1.3 megapixel camera which is a significant upgrade over the CX65 and CX70. The CX75's display is a 132x176 pixel TFT unit capable of 262,000 colours which is an improvement too, but the CX75 has a lot more new toys. This is a Bluetooth phone, so it can be interfaced with compatible accessories or a PC, and it also comes with expandable memory using RSMMC cards in addition to the standard 14Mb available internally. There's infra-red and USB cable support too.

 Siemens CX75 back There's a lot more though the CX75 can play back MP3 and AAC audio, record and play back video clips, it comes with push-to-talk, MMS, Instant Messaging and a WAP 2.0 browser. Siemens technical specifications don't mention an email client, but as the CX75 is virtually identical to the M75 which does, then we assume the CX75 has an email client too.

Talktime is up to 5 hours, with around 10 days standby and the CX75 comes in at a fairly standard 110x48x19mm and 98 grams. It's a tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 device with GPRS, but no EDGE support.

However, there's no inbuilt flash for the camera (it is available as an option though), and no FM radio. Other than these few quibbles, the CX75 is looking a little bit like the Nokia 6230 in specification terms, which gives this Siemens handset some interesting potential.

There are a few gimmicks with the CX75 it comes with a "blogging" function which we can't see the point of, and there's a mobile music box accessory set to turn it into a sort of portable hi-fi. There's no headset in the box either, and we're not sure if the phone has stereo MP3 playback, but we doubt it.

The Siemens CX75 is pretty well specified for a mass-market phone though, and it's especially impressive when compared to the CX65 and short-live CX70. The CX75 will be available in "Titan Grey" and "Sand Silver" colours from mid-2005.
