Siemens unveils the S65 1.3 Megapixel Camera Phone at CeBIT


The high performance S65 business class mobile phone will be launched tommorow at CeBIT Hannover Germany. This is the first Siemens handset with a 1.3 MegaPixal integrated video camera, a 65k high-resolution colour display and 32MB of memory. The triband S65 offers a full suite of business software. A premium silver finish and elegant, understated design completes a phone which offers performance and style for executives who expect the best.

The S65’s high quality 1.3 MegaPix integrated camera and 4 step digital zoom ensure users can record video clips and pictures in detail. The video recorder films at 15 frames per second to offer seamless playback. A large 132×176 pixel and 65k TFT color screen displays images vividly so captured moments can be played back to colleagues, friends and family with impact and precision. The attachable flash offers flexibility to the consumer and makes this a handset as much for the office party as off site meetings. As the S65 is triband, messages and experiences can be communicated back to the home or office from almost anywhere in the world.

In addition to the handset’s creative features, the S65 boats a full suite of business software to offer busy professionals a tiny, truly mobile office. Bluetooth, wireless synchronisation with Microsoft Outlookä, Lotus Notesä and extended PIM (personal information management) mean it’s easy to manage the inbox out of the office. And in combination with the innovative Car Kit Bluetooth with external display, it offers convenient wireless communication while in the car.

Thanks to a compact exchangeable Memory Card of a big 32MB of additional data files and presentations can be stored and shared with colleagues. After work, this flexible memory can be swapped to store more files, pictures and video clips on the S65 to let users maximise their ‘down time’. The options are endless and this despite being only 98g, 109 x 45 x18 mm, Siemens S65 is a powerful device that achieves the best balance between creativity and business.

Following on from the award winning S55, the S65 is poised to become Siemens mobile’s newest design classic. This stylish handset has been crafted in premium-galvanised materials with a high quality silver finish to produce an understated but striking mobile phone that signifies quality and will be desired the world over. And the new lightweight Headset PTT Bluetooth with its compact and neat design is the perfect companion for wireless communication with this phone.

Rudi Lamprecht, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and President of the Board of Siemens mobile, comments: “The most successful business people are often the most demanding. Siemens S65 is a sophisticated mobile phone that delivers maximum performance, yet achieves an understated and classy look and feel. I believe that by combining Siemens’ technical expertise with striking design, we’ve created a handset that the industry will acknowledge as a new approach to business class handset and which stands out in its class.”

The S65 has 6 hours talk time and up to 250 hours standby time. In addition, a wide range of Siemens Original Accessories complement the S65 like the attachable Flash and a variety of Headsets such as the light and small Headset PTT BluetoothTM, the elaborate designed silver and black coloured Headset Purestyle or the Headset PTT. Moreover there is a broad choice of in-car solutions, like the innovative high quality Car Kit Bluetooth with external display, that remote controls the S65, the fixed installed Car Kit Comfort or the flexible Car Kit Easy with its exchangeable mobile holder for future compatibility. Various chargers and data cables, an extra battery and practical carrying cases are also available.

The phone will be available in Q3 2004 over Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
