New Siemens DECT phone offers digital quality at home

Intuitive digital communication for first-time cordless users
New Siemens DECT phone offers digital quality at home

The Siemens Information and Communication Mobile Group (IC Mobile) revealed the device today which will offer first-time DECT users the best value and freedom to talk whenever and wherever they want at home. With the highest talktime and standby time in its class and a highly stylized and ergonomic design, the Gigaset 200 is set to win over consumers, who want an easy to use cordless phone.

The straight-forward Gigaset 200’s tactile design is clear cut and its intuitive commands provide users with simple functionality. Navigation becomes automatic and unconscious, due to the clear keypad design and time saving features such as a 10-number speed dial and redial for the last five numbers to allow the Gigaset 200 to integrate into users’ home life - instantly.

The comfort of CLIP (Caller Line Identification Presentation – depending on country and network) lets users know who is calling and the alphanumeric display consists of 12 characters and one line for pictograms. Culturally diverse users will benefit from the multilingual menu in 14 languages whether making calls indoors or out, up to 30 meters from the base station indoors and 200 meters outdoors. An eight-day standby time means charging need not be a major concern and with up to 15 hours talktime, even the most talkative of users can converse for as long as they like.

Christoph Caselitz, President Cordless Products within the Information and Communication Mobile Group, said: “The Gigaset 200 brings digital quality and smart value to the budget oriented cordless phone market. Building on the success of its predecessor, the Gigaset 100, the new Gigaset 200 takes mass market DECT technology to a new level, where clear design is complemented by style and straight-forward, easy to use functionality.”

The Gigaset 200 is available across Europe from September 2001. The price is available locally. The Price range is similar to its predecessor the Gigaset 100. The midnight-blue colored handset and base station (with plug-in power supply) come with two rechargeable NiCd batteries (AA) and can be purchased through Siemens Gigaset range retailers or online from
