BenQ-Siemens' EF51 musicphone can't handle the abuse?


We weren't necessarily impressed with the EF51 "Pandora" phone from BenQ-Siemens when we spied it the other day, but at least it seemed to be a cute little musicphone. Well, was cute, now that we've seen the live shots of a well abused demo model, we can't say as much. Not only does it look cheaply constructed, but the MP3 controls fold out to reveal a seemingly jury-rigged control mechanism, but at least they're covering what looks to be a well laid out keypad. It also turns out that along with stereo Bluetooth support and stereo speakers, the phone includes a 1.3 megapixel camera, which is always nice, let's just hope this is an early prototype of what will soon be a tough little pocket-ready musicphone.
