Just as the BenQ Siemens E61 comes to the UK, the company announce a new music phone – the BenQ Siemens EF71, equipped with the company’s ‘Q-Fi’ music system – a ten-band equaliser hooked up to a pair of built-in 3D surround-sound speakers.
The EF71 is certainly an attrative phone, housed in a brushed aluminium clamshell casing. It features a 2.2-inch, 176 x 220, 262,144-colour main display and a white, 128 x 64 OLED screen used when the phone is closed. There’s also a 2MP camera with 9x digital zoom which can also be used as a webcam when the phone’s hooked up to a PC’s USB port.
The tri-band GSM/GPRS phone can play music in MP3, AAC or WMA format, but has a measly 24MB of memory on board. However, you can boost this via MicroSD card – BenQ said it will bundle a 256MB card with the handset. Bluetooth is also featured.
The BenQ Siemens EF71 will arrive in Europe in September, prices confirmed nearer to launch date.
