Siemens SL56


The 2.6-ounce GSM/GPRS Siemens SL56 is an appealing but pricey fashion phone.

The 2.6-ounce GSM/GPRS Siemens SL56 is an appealing but pricey fashion phone. When you're not using the SL56 as a phone, its LCD screen displays the time. To answer a call, you slide the top half of the phone with your thumb to reveal a keypad and then...

Siemens SL56 (AT&T)

Compact and sleek design allows phone to slide open; IR connectivity; built-in speakerphone; MMS-ready.

Call quality could be better; small keypad.

Product Specifications

Expect only the best from the Siemens SL56 Mobile Phone. The Global System for Mobile Communication (GSMTM) dual band 850/1900 MHz mobile phone departs from the traditional candy bar and clamshell designs with an exclusive "slider" handset that is eye-catching, small and easy-to-use. The 4, 096-color display enables easy, vivid communication using features such as color picture messaging and calling images for caller identification. The color screen can also be used to display images taken using an optional clip-on mobile camera, which includes a built-in flash for low-light situations. The slider design allows users to make and receive calls without opening the phone by using one-touch buttons or voice commands. Siemens' attention to color is seen in the external design as well as in the applications and user interfaces. Consumers can access a full range of communication features and technology with the SL56 mobile phone. They can use the phone's organizer for important dates, appointments and notes. Users can personalize their communications with various logos, screensavers and polyphonic ring tones. Voice capabilities include speakerphone, voice dialing and voice command to quickly access popular features by pressing a button and speaking a command. Fast data transfer and Internet access is possible with General Packet Radio (GPRS) Service Class 8 technology. A Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) 1.2.1 browser provides mobile Internet access.
