Award-winning design and great convenience: the new Siemens Gigaset C590
The new Siemens Gigaset phone C590 comes in a gleaming white outfit. Its high-end look, which captured the “red dot design award 2009”, is rounded out by a brilliant TFT color display, a unique new aspect in this category. This multi-talent also proves its value for everyday use in households with its convenience features. Equipped with cutting-edge ECO DECT technology, this new model from Gigaset Communications is energy-efficient and radiation-free when in the idle mode.
The Gigaset C590 makes a new fashion statement with its harmonious form and glossy exterior in white piano lacquer. The color spectrum of the icon-aided menu on the 1.8” TFT display (65,000 colors) has been tuned to the color of the device. When users dial, the numbers are shown in a particularly large size; if desired, a larger font size can also be set. The combination of high quality design and excellent ease of use convinced the red dot jury to bestow the “red dot design award 2009” on this device.
The Gigaset C590 enables new possibilities in caller and contact management. It can store up to 150 entries (including three phone numbers and e-mail address) which can be organized in six different VIP groups; and different ringtones and colors can be assigned for individual callers. The last 30 incoming calls are always registered in the call list, along with the time of the call (CLIP/CNIP). The selective call blocking feature means that users are not disturbed by anonymous calls; calls from suppressed or unknown numbers are no longer signaled acoustically, but are merely shown on the handset’s display. Up to six handsets can be registered with the base station.
The Gigaset C590 is also family-friendly, offering practical functions such as baby phone (room monitoring), integrated alarm clock and birthday calendar. It enables receipt and sending of SMS text messages up to 612 characters.
Cutting-edge ECO DECT technology means that this phone is especially energy-efficient and characterized by very low radiation levels. For registered handsets which support ECO Mode Plus, the wireless connection is completely switched off when in idle mode, while ECO mode reduces the transmitting power during calls by 80 percent. Another outstanding feature of this new phone is the brilliant voice quality of the handset and in handsfree operation.
