A58 with a new OS?

A58 with a new OS?

Postby DireWolf » Fri Jun 20, 2008 3:40pm

While searching for CL61 pics for my collection, I stumbled upon this:
http://www.usp-forum.de/prototypen-classics-limited-editions/22334-siemens-a58-apoxi.html (English translation here)

It would seem the A58 was to be based on the APOXI platform, which is said to power also the SL98!
I wonder what could it have been done for Siemens, if it didn't have its demise?

A58, the phone with the same design from A31!

Well DW, for sure Siemens would be able to survive by themselves, and gain from the competitors, the margin they lost since L55 series...

:?

What I meant was that maybe this new APOXI platform could boost Siemens Mobile's competitivity (it appears to be suited to both low-end and high-end models), with less R&D time or better specs-to-price ratio: something like Nokia's S40.
Also, that might explain why it was cancelled: while everybody in the public thought it was a mere L55-based A31 with Bluetooth (the platform allows it, the S55 being the only example), it was indeed a whole new phone. Maybe R&D-ing a new platform was too much a strain in BQS' situation at that time.

Hello, maybe this isn't the best place to ask, but I got an A58 prototype that appears to be locked.
This is the message that appears when the SIM card is inserted. Any ideas?

Thank you.

But it says "Unlock succeeded"... :tard: I don't remember, but I think my SL98 (which also runs APOXI) also shows that when I turn it on.
