BenQ-Siemens SXG75 phone is now available – with GPS


It took them a while, but BenQ-Siemens finally has a UMTS-enabled handset on sale in Europe – the SXG75. They were beaten to market with 3G phones by virtually every major manufacturer. The new phone is the first phone from a major manufacturer to feature the Linux platform. It also has integrated GPS, which has only been seen on a couple of phones so far.

It has a 2.2 inch high resolution display and a 2 megapixel camera that you can use to make video calls as well as for taking pictures. It also features a stereo FM radio and support for audio and video in a number of formats. It has 64MB of internal memory which you can supplement with RS-MMC cards. E-mail and the works is available for business users. It offers 6 hours of talk time or 400 hours of standby.

The SXG75 is available now in Europe. If you are there, you can have one for about $460.
