BenQ-Siemens SF71 phone
The Chinese-language site PhoneDaily claims to have acquired information on what could be the last cellphone under the BenQ-Siemens brand. The SF71 is described as a clamshell phone, but also has a sliding LCD screen, which reveals a two-megapixel camera and twin electronic flashes. A camera facing the user will enable 3G video calls.
Other supposed features include dedicated music controls, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo, and a two-inch QVGA screen with 256,000 colors. The 71 is currently expected to launch in Taiwan; it is unlikely to come to North America, as no BenQ-Siemens phone has ever been adopted by one of the region's carriers. [via SlashPhone]
