Nothing to see on the BenQ Siemens website. However, Gizmodo is bringing the news about the Oxyon, a slider phone that looks like a clone of the Apple iPhone (which – mind you – doesn’t exist yet).
Gizmodo: Not content to let LG and their Chocolate phone hog the title of world’s sexiest phone, BenQ-Siemens has been quietly working on a prototype of a new device to wow the world. The fruit of their efforts? This Oxyon phone with a white, iPod-like finish and a slide out dial pad. Wow indeed.
Ignoring potential usability issues with a vertical dial pad, the phone’s features seem pretty top notch. It’s got a VGA display, 3-megapixel camera, MP3/AAC/WMA/WAV playback and a microSD slot for expandability. It won’t be released until sometime in 2007.
