BenQ-Siemens EL71 details emerge
The BenQ-Siemens EL71 slider will reach the UK market early next month and has been snapped up by both Orange and T-Mobile.
The handset combines mid-range functionality with an aluminium and magnesium finish similar to the BenQ-Siemens EF81. It features a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, internal music player, expandable memory and comes in either black or grey.
The manufacturer is hoping the device will boost its bid to establish the BenQ-Siemens brand on the UK market, following Phones 4U's exclusive deal on the EF81 and its low-cost E61 musicphone, which is currently selling on Virgin Mobile.
The EL71 will carry a Sim-free pricetag of around £250.
