BenQ P30 smartphone
We somehow managed to miss this one off last week. BenQ’s continuing its spate of innovative gadget releases with the launch of the P30, the company’s first Symbian-based smartphone. The handset, just 17mm thick, comes with a 262K-colour TFT touchscreen, built-in VGA digital camera with 3X digital zoom, an application bundle that includes Picsel Viewer for MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Adobe PDFs, and PhotoBase photo editing software. The excellent Opera Browser comes already installed, and users can synch via USB, Bluetooth or infrared. There’s also a music player supporting MP3, AU, AMR, WAV and MIDI file formats.
