BenQ Siemens SL91
BenQ Siemens SL91 : At first sight, the BenQ-Siemens SL91 reveals only one thing: its impeccably beautiful design. The shiny, deep black surface of the mobile and the design shell is evocative of impeccably cut glass. Only when touched does the extravagant slider reveal its functionality. The mysteriously opaque, smooth surface hides innovative Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR) technology. The surface reacts to slight pressure and a signal tells you when an action has been initiated. Thanks to FSR, the BenQ-Siemens SL91 can even be used with gloves, and unintended operation is prevented. Its harmonious, round form makes the BenQ-Siemens SL91 an extraordinary sensory experience, as if you were holding a precious stone in your hand. |

“If I have only one phone in my life it would be the BenQ-Siemens SL91. Forget the home phone, forget the cordless, forget the laptop phone, forget the office phone! I need this little perfect utopic sacred object. The SL91 speaks of its sophistication of the most prescient technology but at the same time seems so peaceful, friendly, soft, engaging, as a beautiful extension of my hand. It looks and feels great, feels sexy, feels smart,” stated Karim Rashid, the internationally renowned designer who had the chance of an exclusive personal sneak preview.

Placed in its design shell the SL91 becomes a precious and extravagant design object for the living room or the office. The elegant shell functions as a charger and also synchronizes the mobile with your PC. Exceptional light effects make this installation a real eye-catcher: A ring of light illuminates the shell in regular light impulses if an sms is received or a call missed while the phone is in the shell. With the mobile, the shell is not only exceptionally stylish; it also doubles as a mobile hi-fi system and a hands-free solution for calls and video conferences.
