A rugged phone for rugged times – Siemens M65

At CeBIT 2004, Siemens Mobile will launch the M65 solid outdoor Triband GSM handset. Packed with full multimedia features for optimum performance and entertainment the M65 is made with a unique mix of rubber and metal. This offers improved resistance to water splashes, shock and dust as well as a complete range of multimedia features. It also includes an integrated VGA video and photo camera, a large high-resolution and 64k TFT colour display, and the full MMS functionality.

The Siemens M65 pushes outdoor communications to new limits, fusing the latest technology with a unique rugged design. Multimedia features such as image and video messaging, the inbuilt VGA digital camera, and the large 2.1 inch diagonal,132 x 176 pixel, 64 k TFT colour display allow users to record adventurous moments and share these with friends and family quickly and easily. In low-light conditions the attachable flash lets experiences be captured around the clock. Special effects of the photo editor can be added to images for an extra twist or touch of drama.

Entertainment is also high on the feature list of the Siemens M65 with Java and games such as Turrican, Team Point Blank and Stack Attack Advanced. Outdoor related images and animation – nature or sports themes for example – allow users to personalize the interface. To add an individual touch or to fit their moods users can download polyphonic sounds (40-note polyphony). Instant messaging is also incorporated for sharing news and adventures in real time with friends everywhere.

Rudi Lamprecht, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and President of the Board of Siemens mobile, said: “The M65 is all about experience but also optimum performance and progressive design. I believe it stands out from competitors in this segment because it not only offers superior outdoor functionality but also the latest multimedia features, in a very unique and high quality design.”

Combining a robust mobile holder and advanced cyclometer with additional tour-management functions and navigational elements, the optional Bike-o-Meter is the perfect M65 bike companion. Simply mounted in direct view on the bike’s handlebar, it displays not only information on standard cyclometer functions but it gives you the option to record new tours on the move or to follow predefined trips that are indicated on the phone’s display.

With a 750-mAh lithium-ion battery supplied as standard, the phone offers 300 hours of standby time and 5, 5 hours of talk time. A wide range of Siemens Original Accessories is available: besides the innovative Bike-o-Meter it includes an attachable flash with red eye reduction, a variety of in-car solutions like the flexible “plug&play” Car Kit Easy with an exchangeable mobile holder, or the high quality Car Kit Comfort as well as various headsets, chargers and data cables, an extra battery and practical carrying cases.

The Siemens M65 will be available across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Brazil in the second quarter 2004 in “Cool Gray”. The price will be available locally.
