Siemens SX1 SmartPhone hits European Market

Siemens long awaited SmartPhone Siemens SX1 hits the European market in time for Christmas.
In November the word was still that Siemens will miss the deadline for Christmas.

The Siemens SX1 Smartphone has strips of keys arranged on each side of the phone, instead of an ordinary keypad. This design shifts the large, 65K color high-resolution screen into the center of the device. The SX1 only weighs 116 grams.

Embedded underneath the screen are central navigation keys.

The Features that Siemens packed into the small 110ccm volume frame include:
Built-in Video Player
MP3 Player
FM radio

The Siemens SX1 supports games written for Series60 or Java (J2ME). Packaged also with the SmartPhone are a full set of business applications directly comparable to a normal PDA, including local and wireless synch.
