BenQ_Siemens_SL91.jpgBenQ-Siemens has launched a new slider handset, the SL91 which reveals its sensor keypad, hidden under a smooth black surface, only when touched. Thanks to sensory controls (Force Sensitive Resistor), the slider mobile reacts to only slight pressure. Futuristic light effects showing missed calls or SMS are sure to cause a stir.

Apart from design, the BenQ-Siemens SL91 also offers up-to-the-minute multimedia functionality. With the built-in 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, atmospheric photo shots and video recordings are easy to achieve any time of the day or night. A second VGA camera that can be directed towards the speaker during video calls is particularly well protected by the slider mechanism.

Music can effortlessly be downloaded directly onto the mobile from a PC via Bluetooth, via UMTS download or streaming. The BenQ-Siemens SL91’s internal storage capacity can be extended using Micro-SD memory cards.

The SL91 will be available in Europe from the fourth quarter of 2006. Prices will be determined locally.
