BenQ Siemens SXG75 Linux GPS phone now shipping


Arriving more than fashionably late to the 3G party, the first UMTS-enabled handset from BenQ-Siemens is currently arriving on store shelves across Europe. Introduced at CeBIT 2005, the SXG75 also scores two other firsts: it’s also the first Linux handset from a major brand name to go into widespread distribution, and even boasts integrated GPS – a feature shared only by communicators such as the HP iPAQ hw6515 and Mio Technology’s soon-to-be-launched Mio A701. Other highlights of the SXG75 include a high-resolution, 2.2-inch display, a 2 Megapixel camera and the ability to conduct video calls, as well as a stereo FM radio with RDS to back up audio and video playback support for a number of formats. Users can choose to store media in the 64 MB of non-volatile memory of the SXG75 or on RS-MMC cards, while business users will be pleased to find a comprehensive messaging suite with e-mail as well as PIM synchronization with desktops.Available now, the BenQ-Siemens SXG75 sells in the 375 EUR range, claiming up to 6 hours of talk time and 400 hours of standby. via infosyncworld.com
