Rumor: Siemens ST55 made especially for T-Mobile will run Microsoft smartphone software
July 11, 2003
German news services are full of rumors related to Siemens ST55, that is supposed to replace (buggy, not stable, according to T-Mobile) Microsoft Smartphone made by HTC. Siemens could manufacture it through Quanta in Taiwan. We cannot confirm any of these rumors and sincerely it is doubtful, that Siemens will produce any Microsoft Smartphone, particularly because it now promotes very much Siemens SX1 phone (Symbian based). On the other hand Siemens is selling in USA the Siemens SX56, which is just a "xda" model produced by HTC with a "Siemens" label on it.

There's a news in local newspaper of Taiwan today says Quanta is manufacturing the ST55 for Siemens. And it will be released next month.

Quanta is the No. 1 OEM/ODM of notebooks in Taiwan.
They manufacture a lot of IBM and Apple notebooks.

This is not running the Microsoft OS (which is why we declined to post about it when several other sites have over the past few days).

See this for proof:

:lol: At least we know that ST55 is not Windows-based now.

And it should be Symbian-based, right?

I kinda hope Quanta will manufacture Windows-based smartphones because they are really good at manufacturing quality "devices" like notebooks and cell phones.

And that's why they are the no. 1 oem/odm of nb in Taiwan.

Compal is no. 2.

Mitac? Well, maybe no. 5 or no. 6. :roll: So the produce quality of Mio 8380? I am not sure. We have to wait and find out. :P

HTC is focused on manufacturing Pocket PC and Smartphones.
