SL91 reaches UK in November
BenQ-Siemens' touch-sensitive SL91 slider will be available in the UK from November.
The handset, which is likely to take centre stage as BenQ-Siemens' flagship device, carries a 3.2 megapixel camera and Chocolate-like touch-sensitive front panel. It comes with a cradle doubling up as a USB connection and phone charger.
The phone is another attempt by the manufacturer to break into the high-end market and shed its reputation as relying on budget products to drive sales.
Separately, BenQ-Siemens has secured orders from at least three networks for the EF61 Mia, which is well on its way to become the most widely supported BenQ-Siemens device yet. The manufacturer enjoyed good sales of the CL75 Poppy and hopes its similarly styled predecessor will prove as popular. 'We've had more preorders from customers on this than any other product,' BenQ Mobile's UK MD Philip Rambech told Mobile.
