BenQ Releases the EF51 MP3 Player With Built-in Mobile Phone
BenQ Mobile is introducing the BenQ-Siemens EF51, a music device with an integrated mobile phone. The EF51 is focused on the needs of heavy music users on the move and equipped with accessories standard to other music players on the market.

The EF51 is fitted with keys for play, pause as well as fast forward and backward functions located on the exterior, below an 1.6-inch TFT color display (262,144 colors, 128 x 128 pixels) for quick and easy operation.

Apart from an FM radio, the EF51 boasts a player for music files in MP3, WMA, AAC and AAC+ formats. A particularly convenient feature is the voice-operated music selection function, which allows users to simply tell their mobile phone the name of the song and it starts playing it.

The BenQ-Siemens EF51 also has integrated 3D surround sound, a 6-band equalizer for individual sound arrangement and a Display Lyrics feature which displays the text of the music being played on the screen. Additionally, the EF51 enables music to be recorded directly from the radio.

Users can expand the phone's memory with miniSD cards. Songs stored on a PC can be easily transferred onto the mobile using the USB data cable supplied. The EF51 comes with a stereo headset but it also supports Bluetooth stereo headsets with remote control.

The mobile phone is also equipped with an integrated 1.3 megapixel digital camera. Concealed under a flap at the front of the mobile is the phone’s keypad. The BenQ-Siemens EF51 will be available in Q2/2006 in white and black color variants. Prices will be determined locally.
