Which store and which country is stocking the SL91?
All I keep hearing and reading that everyone is cancelling there orders for all benq siemens mobile phones!!! And anyone with any stock are selling them off at bargain basement price like Phones 4 U selling EF81 for £99 sim free!!!!!
Still hope the SL91 does manage to get to UK shores because I'd really love one and also I hope somehow that this is not the end of Siemens mobile because what choice will we have apart from Nokia, Samsumg, Motorola and LG which I just do not like.
Panasonic and NEC are merging there mobile phone divisions to I hear!
Anyway fingers crossed for the SL91 :)
check the video out. Our first store stock is already sold in advance. we will be receiving the rest after its released due to backordering.
-- This is a comment to "william" with the K800iand K750i sony handsets. There is a MAJOR difference in the camera quality. looking at it on your mobile phone screen probably wont show any significant difference, but put them on PC or print them out then try saying that comment again. i got rid of my k750i as soon as i noticed the improvement.
S88 had better camera than K750i. It is highly likely that Sl91 will have a better camera than K800i. But before making a comment,. its better to let the phone be released.
first of all i want to correct some mistakes:
1:"cybershot" is a feature and interface/os of a digital camera from sony, and not a lens, sony uses either sony lens optical and carl-zeiss vario-tessar/sonnar lens for their line ups of their high performance digital cameras,.. mostly the W,H,P,T-series has carl-zeiss lens and all of those have rendered a nice images produced using that lens...
carl-zeiss proved to be a good lens with good sharpness, canon beats it with it's lens but in style,features and price canon is beaten by sony like a pulp... i dont think n90 becomes bad with using carl-zeiss lens, mostly this must be attributed to the bad sensor used by nokia, even in n73 i dont know why putting car-zeiss lens doesn't mean it will boast overall perforance of the camera, it is a joint work of a Good imaging lens(sharpness), good imaging sensor(bright,natural colors), and a fast and reliable imaging processor(fast and outstanding imaging), that's what K800 got two of the three, while nokia only got one.. autofocus is already a nice addition to this luxurious phone...
The newspaper today claims that Asus or HTC are in talks with benq mobile to buy siemens mobile.
being an avid SE fan I happen to own the K800i/K750i, while the results on both are fantastic, the K800i disappointed me. Just because it contains a cybershot feature with xenon flash does not mean anything, I compare contrast to my K750i and I can't tell the difference in colours, the N90 also proved a huge disapponiting 2mp regardless of the Carl Zeiss optics which were a naive marketing ploy to force people to buy a brick behemoth of a phone. So again, the name means squat unless you have a sample.
Comparing the SL91's camera to the SE K800 and Nokia N73 is like comparing apples with oranges. The K800 uses sony's cybershot camera lens and the N73 uses a Carl Zeiss lens, so technically speaking, those phones will take far better pics than an otherwise "normal" camera lens. Try comparing the SL91's camera to another "comparable" camera and see what the results are on that.
Andy Burgin, the guy who posted the comment about camera not up to scratch, do not believe what others say unless you have concrete evediece such as sample pictures, other yet do not believe what others say, period. I back that statement by saying I do not believe you either so it's best not to jump to conclusions as you've not tested it, so how do you know and whay jump to rash conclusions. Besides a prototype means it ain't the final version too.
This will spark up some serious competition, back the the good ole hay days of classic siemens phones, remember the classics such as the SL45i/S45/SX1 and SL55 slider. Now Siemens is back and kicking back, but with BenQ. Watch out Nokia/Samsung/Motorola/SE
this is quite long time from announcing date, did Benq-Siemens update any news about this phone?
is has been said that it is $799.99 in the usa. so convert this ans that is the price of the phone.
BENQ-Siemens can get back on track with this phone...
When Benq joined Siemens Nokia said "two hens dont make an eagle..."
Im waiting to see this phone but im not sure why I havent seen an advert on TV yet...Nokia will eat thier words if this is a hit
hey there every1.
can sum 1 pls tell me a ruf estim8 price 4 this fone? im livin in oz and im prayin that its released here, but i want to get a price so i no wot im in 4.
thanks guys n galz, gsmarena.com ROX!!!
BenQ Mobile – end of the story for Siemens!!!
My mate a worked saw the SL91 an was really impressed with its looks i got home from work an get my monthly mobile magazine WHAT MOBILE an its tested the camera on this pro type model of the SL91 an they say BenQSiemen have alot of work to be done to make this camera compete with the K800i or N73,the photos were dull an made every photo give it a eerie look so just hope they get the camera really improved or BenQ will have to realise taking over Siemens does not help there get there mobiles sales booming
Sad part is that its battery life will be poor. I am comparing it with another Benq-Siemens model to be more fair.
And the EL71's appling battery life is actually more than the SL91. Quite sad. Should at least be able to last 3-4 days on light use.
