Symbian DevZone - Siemens SX1 Developer Opportunities (1353 words)
Siemens with its SX1 have gone even further and thrown away the rulebook to create a radical new layout that sees the keyboard moved up to sit either side of the phone's display.
This is the approach Siemens has taken in providing controls for the SX1's FM radio where the side keys provide access to preset radio stations, in a similar fashion to the preset buttons on a conventional radio.
Siemens are planning to publish a white paper describing the use of the side keys in more detail on their developer web site by the end of July.
Symbian: Symbian OS phones: Siemens SX1 (235 words)
The SX1 has strips of keys built in to each side of the phone, instead of an ordinary keypad, to give it a sleek shape.
Embedded discreetly underneath the screen are central navigation keys which help make the features of the SX1 even easier to navigate in the usual portrait mode or, if the application supports it, in landscape mode.
By combining the latest entertainment and business technology, the SX1 is perfect for those who ‘work hard, play harder’.
