You might be forgiven for thinking that
there's something as little familiar about
the CX65, and you're probably right. Its
unusual large screen candy-bar design is
strikingly similar to the Sony Ericsson
combined with a touch of the Siemens SX1.
Essentially, the CX65 is a large screen
candy bar style phone but it gets a lead
on the T6x0 series by having a slightly
better screen at 132x176 pixels and a much
better camera, at 640x480 pixels.
There's tri-band GSM, GPRS, MMS, Polyphonic
ringtones and Java support wrapped up in
the CX65's 106x48x18 case, at coming in
at a fairly lightweight 91 grams.
Against the Sony Ericsson competition,
the CX65 really does well. Although the
T630 is arguably a prettier phone, the Siemens
wipes the floor with it in terms of camera
capability, and since this part of the market
is sold on the camera's capability, then
it looks like the CX65 is easily the better
bet. Early indications are that the CX65
will be very good value for money too.
