Sagem at CeBIT'2005 - aspiration for the middle class
Sagem stand was full of visitors due to the jokers' efforts attracting people.
The company decided to vary the line maximum and thus it gives different indexes to the models with the same functionality different only in design. The models with the C index refer to clamshells, Z-index means sliders and the X letter stands for classic phones. Besides the company adds letter indexes in the end of the name like w (wap), j (java). That is clear the difference described with a letter is based on only one function. The approach is mainly interesting for operators the company really orients on, and that is not interesting for open markets since users get confused with the indexes and see no difference.
The X8 being the leader of the company line attracted much attention. It turned to be successful and interesting attracting even those never interested in Sagem products. And that was no surprising the company decided to develop the success of the model by representing a younger one with similar characteristics. This new middle-class device X6-2 comes as a rival to such phones as Siemens CX75, Alcatel OT-S853. In difference to the elder phone the screen resolution decreased and got 176x220 pixels (QCIF). This practically didn't tell upon the quality of the interface as well as the picture brightness and clearness. The screen is really good and comes as one of the best in its class. The second difference not so flaring is a camera. It is 1.3 MP like in the X8 but a CMOS matrix making the model cheaper was applied. And finally, memory capacity is now 10 MB instead of 41 MB in the elder model.
The downgrade of other functional characteristics could have been expected, for instance, miniSD slot, Bluetooth, IrDA. But it didn't happen and all the mentioned functions are present. Working with a memory card is more comfortable than in the X8. The phone allows reproducing MP3, AAC, AAC+ formats, that makes it a good player. But the settings are too simple, no equalizer and external control elements. The maximum capacity of a memory card is 265 MB, many will find this enough. Technologically, the model is ready for launch, and we'll see it the next month (approximately the end of April). The price will be minimal for this class and will form 240 USD for the start of sales. The difference with the X8 will form about 40-50 USD. Considering that the model will appear earlier than all the rivals, we can surely expect its success. Functionally the phone is comparable with Nokia 6230i. Considering almost two times lass price, Sagem myX6-2 looks very interesting. Today the middle class turned into a very functional segment.
At the stand it was possible to play with the first Sagem's slider. In principle, the Z3 copied the X4 having no differences in the menu organization and other things. Considering the price of the solution and its poor functionality, we can hardly speak about any interest to it.
Also the models represented at the Cannes exhibition were shown at the stand. They are the C3-2 clamshell, low-end X2-2 and X1-2. You can acquaint with their photos in the material from Cannes. Or read the specifications here.
