San Diego -- Siemens Mobile today introduced the classy S66 camera phone. Available in October, the S66 is the first Siemens phone with a 1.3 megapixel integrated still and video camera for work and play. Whether the user is documenting a great moment in sports or capturing a child's first steps, the S66's camera will deliver the moments in brilliant clarity on the phone's large, high-resolution up to 65,536 TFT color screen. The five-step digital zoom brings the action close up and the video recorder's ability to capture up to 15 frames per second helps film the moments as they unfold, second by second(a).
When it's time to go hands-free, consumers can use the S66's integrated Bluetooth(TM) technology to wirelessly communicate or send pictures to nearby compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices such as computers and mobile phones(e). They can also take advantage of the phones' Bluetooth capability by purchasing an optional Siemens Bluetooth headset or Bluetooth car kit to avoid having extra cables to deal with. Staying in touch with the home-office calendar and in-box is simple by synchronizing the S66 with Microsoft Outlook(R) and Lotus Notes(R) via compatibly equipped devices using infrared, USB or Bluetooth.
Sharing important personal moments with photos, sounds or video clips is easy through MMS and e-mail(b), (e). For simple, quick outreach to friends or family members, users can type an instant message or SMS. For a dose of fun, consumers can enjoy 3-D gaming using the built-in joystick navigation. The phone's integrated memory card (RS-MMC) slot also allows the user to store and easily transfer photos and files to other devices or computers that have a compatible MMC slot. A 32 MB RS-MMC is included free with the phone, allowing consumers to start storing files right away. If used for storing photographs exclusively, a 32 MB memory card can typically store up to 150 photographs taken at 1.3 megapixel resolution(a).
The S66 is crafted in premium-galvanized materials with a high quality silver finish. It operates on the 850/1800/1900 MHz Global System for Mobile communications (GSM(TM)) frequencies, making it a global companion for the international traveler. Additional product details include a weight of 3.5 ounces, talk time of up to five hours(d), standby time of up to 250 hours(d), Li-Ion battery, 40-chord polyphonic sound, speakerphone, Java(TM) games and optional accessories such as an attachable flash for the camera (flash sold separately)(c).
