Siemens SK65


Research in Motion's (RIM) Blackberry device might be a fantastic innovation that allows you to keep in touch with email on the move but its not the most sexy looking unit on the block. Siemens however believes it might just be able to help RIM out.

The Blackberry client, style, keyboard

Size, screen resolution, no camera or mp3 player, keyboard spilt down the middle

With a promise of 250 hours standby and 300 minutes talk time this phone should last you through a good day on the phone. The phone also has Quad-band support making this live up to its business worker approach and mean that you aside from Japan you...

Although the keyboard isn't the miracle cure for handheld typing that we'd hoped, this is a stylish alternative to the BlackBerry range.

That's curious the reason of not manufacturing a real smartphone was hidden with some rhetorical phrases sounded on a presentation on the 2 of August in London. Lothar Pauly on of the directors in Siemens Mobile and later a president of Siemens Com...

Siemens turned some heads (pun sort of intended) last year with their announcement of their SK65, a pretty radical form factor departure from the regular QWERTY keyboard-equipped mobile communicators out there. And what's more, they produced a...

Siemens' SK65 smartphone has Research In Motion's Blackberry solution built in, plus an innovative 'cross-to-type' keyboard.

Siemens would not give pricing for any of the three SK65 variants but expects the phone to become available in November in Europe, Middle East and Latin America with other regions to follow shortly afterwards (a local release date could not be given at...

Siemens SK65 (Tri-Band)


Where the SK65's rating was of concern, our 4 stars award was well justified by its all round features. The SK65 worked well as a mobile phone with hardly a glitch throughout our test period. Useful applications such as the Organizer, Survival...

Review: Siemens SK65


They say X marks the spot. Well, that certainly seems to be the case with the Siemens SK65. That amazing X swivel form factor allows Siemens to put a really nice QWERTY keyboard into the SK, and the BlackBerry support is sure to please many.

Siemens SK65


SK65 claims to be the first handset to offer complete email management with BlackBerry Built-In technology.

In order to come to the end I would like to add that there aren't any problems between the actually phone manager and the phone itselves. “Synching” and anything else works perfectly. Both with Outlook, and with Lotus Notes, owing to XTND Connect. The...
