[Siemens showed its GPRS handset prototype today in Singapore at a CommunicAsia press conference and discusses plans for future products "MultiMobile" and "SIMpad".]

Singapore -- "German technology giant Siemens AG unveiled plans Monday to capture a 15 percent share in Asia's mobile phone market next year to emerge as one of the top three players in the region.

"Siemens is launching a new generation of mobile phones at a regional telecommunications event here, which offers triple band, Internet services and high speed data services. The phones are designed by Robert Bosch GmbH following the two companies' recent tie-up.

"Christian Gylstorff, vice president of Siemens Communication Devices Asia Pacific, said sales in the mobile phone industry worldwide were expected to surpass the fixed line market in five years.

"... He said the company had earlier this year introduced four new mobile phones offering Internet services such as email and banking using the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) standard.

"By the year-end, Siemens will launch its first mobile phone offering higher data speed and faster Internet services with the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) technology, and another three GPRS devices in 2001, he said.

"... During the briefing, Siemens unveiled prototypes of the GPRS phone and other products currently being developed.

"Georges Boulloy, vice president for product marketing, said Siemens was now developing a pocket computer called "MultiMobile" that provides Internet services and video as well as a cordless Internet device called "SIMpad."

"It also has plans to introduce mobile gaming online worldwide and an integrated digital video camera with Internet access and video-conferencing, he added.
