Siemens  SXG75

 Siemens SXG75 Discontinued
9th March 2005

The Siemens SXG75 is an advanced 3G phone, and should be the first 3G device from Siemens to make a market impact. Their previous 3G phone, the Siemens U15 pretty much sank without trace. However, the SXG75 is a fully featured and very high end 3G handset that promises (at least from its technical specifications) to be one of the most advanced devices on the market.

The screen is a QVGA 240x320 pixel panel in 256,000 colours and 2.2 inches diagonal size, making it one of the most impressive displays on the market. On the back of the SXG75 is a 2 megapixel digital camera, and on the front is a lower resolution camera for video calling.

It's a media rich phone, supporting MP3 playback, 3G streaming media and Siemens have included an FM radio for good measure. There's 64Mb of free memory internally on the Siemens SXG75, and this can be expanded using RSMMC cards (although the maximum capacity is not known).

 Siemens SXG75 back Unusually the Siemens SXG75 has an integrated GPS receiver, something that we've typically only seen on high-end Motorola 3G handsets to date, with an A-GPS option. There are other options available too, including headsets, carkits and multimedia playback kits. The SXG75 comes with a stereo headset as standard, although we do not know if it has stereo MP3 playback, or if the headset is only for the radio.

This is a Bluetooth device, as you might expect, and the Siemens SXG75 can also be connected to a compatible PC via a USB cable or infra-red. The handset can be synchronised with a PC and Microsoft Outlook, although unlike many recent high end 3G devices (such as the Nokia 6680), the SXG75 isn't a smartphone.

There's a XHTML web browser, email client, push-to-talk and instant messaging, and the Siemens SXG75 also supports tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900) and GPRS, but not EDGE.

Battery life is good - on 3G talktime is 3-5 hours with about 15 days standby, on GSM talktime is a little longer. At 112x53x20mm and 134 grams it's a little large, but then this is a 3G phone and that's about average for this class of device.

The SXG75 looks a little bland in styling terms, which is a shame because this is the sort of device that should draw a bit more attention to itself. Still, it's an impressive device and proves that Siemens Mobile is capable of coming up with something other than just warmed-over versions of previous handsets. The SXG75 should be available from September 2005.
