BenQ-Siemens shows off CF61 music clamshell


More info has been unearthed on the CF61 we spied yesterday, and though we're disconcerted by certain karaoke functionalities, it's shaping up to be a fine musicphone for Benq-Siemens. The phone seems squarely targeted at the teen-ish market, with interchangeable music faceplates and plenty of iPod aesthetic. Luckily there's enough functionality in there to get by, including a microSD slot, and Bluetooth. The main thrust of phone is, of course, music, so there is plenty of format support and the usual tinny speakers. There is also a karaoke function that displays lyrics on the screen so you and your friends can sing along, but we'll leave the morality of such actions up to you. Perhaps most oddly, the phone is powered by a AAA battery and manages 20 hours of talk time and 10 days of standby -- can't argue with those results.
