BenQ rolls out Q41 notebook with Sideshow and VoIP

BenQ Joybook Q41

BenQ today provided the surprise of a completely new entry in its Joybook portable line. The Q41 is the first notebook from the company to offer an external display for Windows Vista's SideShow feature: a 2.5-inch LCD on the outer lid lets users access e-mail, media, and simple games from the system even while turned off. Completely unique to BenQ, however, is the SideShow display's VoIP feature: owners can place Internet phone calls without having to boot up the main system and start conventional software, the company boasts.

The PC builder has yet to post full details of the Q41's feature set but reveals that the 14-inch system will use a Core 2 Duo processor at its heart and incorporate both Bluetooth and WiFi for its wireless duties. Neither a release date nor pricing for the system have been set, though BenQ typically releases its systems first in its southeast Asian home as well as Europe.
