Three New Handsets Launch BenQ-Siemens Brand

18th January 2006

The BenQ-Siemens tie-up in 2005 had started off pretty poorly, with a range of lacklustre cheap phones, and products such as the Siemens SG75 which were announced then cancelled. By the end of 2005, the BenQ-Siemens range of phones was looking pretty poor, but BenQ had promised a better range of handsets for 2006.. and to coincide with the launch of the BenQ-Siemens brand, they've come up with a trio of handsets that look quite interesting.

We'll cover these devices in more depth soon - but first up is the BenQ-Siemens EF81, a slim 3G clamshell phone with a 2 megapixel camera, expandable memory, multimedia playback, Bluetooth and a 2.2" 240x320 pixel main display. The EF81 weighs just 110 grams which is pretty impressive for a fully featured 3G phone such as this. The EF81 has clearly taken a little bit of inspiration from the Motorola RAZR in its design.

The BenQ-Siemens S68 is a more traditional looking Siemens handset with a 132x176 pixel display and Bluetooth, but deliberately designed without a camera to appeal to businesses. At just 78.5 grams in weight and a 13.2mm thickness, the S68 is certainly very compact too.

The S88 is BenQ-Siemens answer to the Sony Ericsson K750i - a multimedia phone with a 2 megapixel digital camera, 176x220 pixel display, Bluetooth and expandable memory using microSD cards.

These handsets may not be the most original designs in the world - they seem to be strongly influenced by Motorola and Sony Ericsson. In styling terms they seem to lack polish too, however they are promising looking devices that should be very competitively priced when they come out. All three handsets are due during Q1 2006.

BenQ promise to launch a large number of 3G and megapixel class devices in their 2006 portfolio.
