    By 11 January 2007

    It was only a matter of time before landline handsets started introducing Bluetooth as part of their feature set. First was BT with its rather chav-esque BT Glide, now Siemens has waded in with the rather more stylish looking Gigaset SL565. But is it...

    Siemens SF65 review

    By 12 May 2005

    The swivel action screen enables the SF65 to work like an actual digital camera. Turning the screen activates camera mode. Holding the phone in landscape, exactly as if it were a digital camera makes it easy to take pictures at any angle. The colour display...

    By 21 February 2005
