Siemens has introduced the ST55, an integrated camera phone with a 4x zoom. According to the company, the ST55 "combines state-of-the-art technology with modern, elegant design". We have to agree--it's one of the prettiest phones we've seen in a long time (thumbnail shown at right, click on it to enlarge). It looks similar to some of the more recent stuff out of Sony Ericsson, especially with the icon-driven menu. Here are some quick facts: * 65,000 color TFT LCD * 5-way joystick * Integrated camera * MMS * 40-tone polyphonic ringtones The ST55 will be available across Europe from August. No word on if it will be available in the states, but that probably means it won't be.
