                  News update: 
                  New mobile phones from Siemens 
                  This month, Siemens mobile announced two new phones, the CX70 
and the SK65. Here are the most important facts on both of them. 

                  CX70 - the first "Push and Talk" capable mobile phone from 
                  With the introduction of the CX70, Siemens mobile is the 
world's first manufacturer to offer an end-to-end solution for "Push and Talk" 
(PaT) based on open specifications. The service features walkie-talkie 
functionality over mobile networks and makes group calling easier and faster 
than ever before. As the first Voice-over-IP application, Push and Talk is 
based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), the technology platform for many 
future multimedia services. 

                  To ensure that Push and Talk works as quickly as possible 
across all networks and with as many devices from other phone manufacturers as 
well, Siemens mobile is relying on IMS switching technology, which enables 
IP-based connections between mobile phones and is based on the specifications 
of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). IMS will be the control 
layer for many innovative multimedia services, such as video transmission, 
instant messaging and virtual reality applications like multiparty gaming. 

                  Photos, graphics and more information on Push and Talk can be 
found on Siemens' special internet pages:

                  Siemens SK65 - the first mobile phone with complete e-mail 
management and a revolutionary design 
                  A pioneer in the future of mobile phone communication, the 
SK65 brings messaging and information to the business professional 's 
fingertips with e-mail push based on BlackBerry Built-InT technology from 
Research In Motion (RIM). The tri-band handset allows seamless wireless 
communication with e-mail tools such as MS Outlook&trage; or Lotus NotesT 
ensuring instant synchronization of e-mails and maximizing hours spent 
traveling or between meetings for busy professionals. 

                  The SK65's premium design provides the definitive solution 
for combining technological advances with ease of use, through its unique and 
innovative x2type (cross-to-type) full-sized keyboard. Opened with a turned 
action, the full-sized 37-key keyboard is an essential part of the design 
enabling quick and easy e-mail composition, yet folding away discreetly when 
not in use. 

                  The SK65 features 64MB memory for managing large amounts of 
data, with up to 30MB free, for storing personal information such as e-mails, 
ring tones and java applications. Additional features include: a large 132 x 
176 pixel TFT screen with 64k colors, a fully featured address book with room 
of up to 2000 entries and new Siemens Mobile Phone Manager PC software. 

                  The phone will be available in Europe, Middle East and Latin 
America from November 2004. Other regions will follow shortly afterwards.
