The MC60 comes with a range of polyphonic ringtones and games, and exchangeable keypads and CLIPit Covers are available.
The MC60 costs AUD$499. For more information, see www.my-siemens.com.au.
About the Author
Mike grew up thinking he would become a mathematician, accidentally started motorcycle racing, got a job writing road tests for a motorcycle magazine while at university, and became a writer. As a travelling photojournalist during his early career, his work was published in a dozen languages across 20+ countries.
