S75 will be available next month, i'm quite confident with it. The Bluetooth has just been qualified
Search here : http://qualweb.bluetooth.org/
I'm located in Singapore
Same problem in Malaysia. No one selling Siemens phone. Sad....:(
Wrote to Siemens and they admit they are in transition period but how long should someone who ACTUALLY wanted the phone should wait????
S75 & SL75 Bluetooth version was qualified under 1.2 only. I expect it to be V2.0 + EDR

Sorry Daniel , I was joking about the cancellation , this one won't be cancelled , and about the shopes , that is strange the same thing happened here (in the Middle East) I tried about 10 or more and no one sells siemens
Ok, but is it official that they're cancelling this phone? I found it already strange that not a single shop here ( Amsterdam Netherlands ) - ok i tried like about 5 - knows it, some retailers don't even sell siemens anymore.
Cancelled by BenQ? So Siemens is merging with BenQ.
I hope it isn't cancelled because I wanted to order the S75 tomorrow....
this model would realy give the competition a run for its money if it had a higher display resolution (240 x 320?) and a 2.0 megapixel camera. it is archaic to have 132 x 176 pixels display and a 1.3-megapixel camera. i really suggest that siemens build on this model and make improvements in its features. the design and the key pad is attractive. to me at least, anyway.
S75 BenchMark result,

it's a comparison between M/CX75 & S75

It was rumoured to be around Euro 330
It may be very true. Just my thoughts

This is NOT just a mobile phone with a good MP3 Player. It has a easy+friendly user interface, great quality of call sound, great organizer, great phonebook, great reception, and all. And the easiest and coolest file system! (its memory can be expanded with RS-MMC, so there's no need to have a huge internal memory. 20 MB is enough.)
Most of people already forgot those main things. They only care about large screens, big cameras, etc.
It's no surprise that Siemens has improved it's OS tremendously. They have to do so in order to gain back it's market share
Anyway, thumbs up for S75 & SL75 (With ATI chip in it)
To : Orange,
That's right, a lot of shops have stopped selling Siemens mobile phones in Singapore.
I expect a lot of consumers will purchase the S75 once it's available everywhere
Lots of people are waiting for this phone
Glad to see the Siemens OS have such improvement. I am waiting the release of the whole series 75. Just CX75 released in Hong Kong at September and many shops stopped selling Siemens phones right now.
To : Orn,
I'm waiting for this phone to be available in Singapore.
I'm able to tried out that prototype S75 is because there's a retailer who knows those Benq Mobile staff very well. Also, he has been supporting Siemens for more than 5 years. That's why he was able to borrow it, demonstrate it to us & let us have a feel/touch/test of it too.
That is where i have posted a mini review of prototype S75 here
If we compare S65 to Samsung D500, Siemens looks funny.
For such phone I expected to have a Symbyan OS and more important, much more built in memory just like D500.
So it is not suprising that Siemens is not any more among three most popular gsm companies.
Overall, I think it is not worth buying a mobile phone just to have a good MP3 player.
Does anybody know what final price will be?
To : Orn,
The sound that came out from the loudspeaker on the prototype S75 beats K750i/W800i hands down completely. It's a true fact.
I have tried the phone before, seriously. That's why i have written a small review on S75
