Siemens Sx 66
Siemens is a German company headquartered in Berlin and Munich. The company, which is more than 155 years old, is a giant in the respective fields of communications, automation and control, power, transportation, medicine, and lighting. In 2005, Siemens, in association with Ben-Q, launched the SX66, a high-end smart phone. The PDA is like an all-in-one communication tool. The best feature of the phone is that a small QWERTY keyboard slides out from the base. The advantage of this is that this can be slipped right back inside when not needed. It prevents the PDA from looking huge and bulky. The Siemens SX66 includes all the essentials of modern communications: WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared, and USB. The phone has a quad-band GSM, which is a higher version of the tri-band GSM, something that's common in mobile phones. The PDA also includes facilities such as a camera with video capture facilities, high-quality stereo sound, and MP3 playback so that one can listen to music on the go, and a speakerphone. The SX66 is more like a mobile, personal computer. It runs on a Windows Mobile 2003 OS, has 400MHz X-scale processor, and a 128 MB RAM which makes sure that the PDA functions faster and helps save time. The Java base ensures the smooth running of all the applications needed. A 64 MB flash slot provides enough storage space for all data like official documents, videos, pictures, music, and other software. A 64k color TFT touch screen, of 240x320 resolution, assures crystal clear viewing. The GPRS facility and e-mail capability makes transference of data possible. The PDA weighs only 200 grams and is easy to carry around. Other accessories for the phone include Siemens SimpleTech Mini Drivers for Flash Drives, Siemens 256 MB MMC, and Siemens Bonzai USB 2.0 Flash Drive with 512MB SD.
