At CeBIT 2001 in Hanover, the Siemens Gigaset 4010 and 4015
Classic and Comfort made their entry to the cordless Siemens DECT phone product
portfolio. With a broad range of consumers' needs in mind, Siemens has developed
two new stylish and ergonomically designed cordless family phones, each with the

possible to use value-added services like SMS to e-mail or SMS to fax.

provides the user a very intelligent, yet simple, interface. In addition, its
walkie-talkie mode, operating independently from the base station, allows users
to communicate in a range of up to 300 meters using two Comfort handsets

with an extensive phonebook capacity of up to 200 entries. In addition, the
Gigaset 4015 Comfort allows for 20 phonebook entries to be activated by voice
from up to four different users*** and the answering machine can also be
