I don't get why they would give it a 2 megapixel camera but leave out something as basic as e-mail capabilities, I know most people don't need it but still, it's not like it's a costly commodity these days, most entry level phones even have it.
I think they better take out the "benQ" from the brand name. Just leve it as Siemens or abbreviate it.
I like this phone, even though almost everybody said that this phone is just like K750 built by benq-siemens.. Don't judge the phone by it's design.. FM Radio? I don't need it.. What I need most is email, which was not supported by this phone.. Better get S75 for that.. But actually this is a great phone, compared to other previous benq or siemens phone.. not everyone need radio or email or IM. But for basic function and extra stuff and the price too, this is a bang for buck :)
This phone was awarded with INDUSTRIAL FORM DESIGN AWARD (very prestigous award in Germany). It seems that professional people who are giving these awards don't care much for the opinions of those of you who were mentioning similarities (or even copying) with some other phones. Guess you were wrong people, this design already won significant AWARD!
In fact,the price of s88 in Taiwan is quite good.It's even cheaper than K750I.I think s88 will be a hit!!Good job BenQ Siemens!!
clearly an evolution of siemens c75, I don't know where do you find it close to SE k750, SE is damn ugly!!! (it's very good to use but sony designers should be all killed for bringing out that ugly phone). Unfortunetly this benq-siemens will be probably very expensive, siemens loves to over price the phones, thats why no one buy them...
I agree!! A really good copy of SE K750, but not very original, i doubt the quality of benq or siemens phones+it DOESN'T HAVE RADIO!!!. Not to mention infrared port. And I bet it is more expensive than the original.:)
Definately unoriginal, even the menus seem pretty similiar to that of a Sony Ericsson
looks unlike k750i,s88 have 2inch oled best quality screen in the world,it is really make me xite.
Here are some pics of S88 & D608
Up one is taken by S88
down one is taken by Samsung D608
I think the photo quality is good :D
To Paul: I think it's because BenQ is a Taiwanese company~~
If there's any photos taken by s88~~I will post the link to let you guys see~~Hope you like it
thanks for the links xciter..........i saw the pics and am convinced that the "future is bright .future is benq-siemens"
check out these night shots taken by the S88:
and the rest...
i'm impressed...not bad! i can see the future of Benq-Siemens cameras!=)
