BenQ-Siemens announced a new addition to the Siemens M-series phones famous for their enhanced shock, dust and splash protection - the new device would be called Benq-Siemens M81. Equipped with scratch resistant 262K TFT display and 1.3 megapixel camera with a LED flash, the phone is a representative of the middle class devices but is targeted at the young people.
The display has a rather inadequate resolution of 132x176 pixels which is far less than the standard QVGA resolution of 240x320 pixels. A good thing is that the LED flash serves the double purpose of a flashlight which should help you find your way around in the middle of the night. An appealing feature for the active youngsters is the microSD card slot which is there to provide plenty of memory space for the integrated music player. The phone is even equipped with stereo headset.
As regards connectivity the phone supports tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 and EDGE along with an advanced version of Bluetooth supporting the A2DP profile which practically means that it supports a stereo Bluetooth headset.
