More deets on BenQ-Siemens CF61 flip phone

Looks like we know a little more about that iPod-colored music phone from BenQ-Siemens. The CF61 is your standard looking clamshell, but if you dive a little deeper, you’ll discover all of its musical functionality, including its ability to double as a karaoke machine.

Clearly not marketed to business users, the CF61 sports classic Apple-esque styling, then again, that can almost be said of most sleekly designed white-colored electronics these days. As a music phone, this handset will take on most formats, and if you’re daring enough, can also display lyrics on its tiny screen for you to sing along. You can even make use of the on-board speaker to fill that subway car with your, er, masterpiece.

Most of the usual bells and whistles are here, including Bluetooth, microSD expansion, and a 1.3MP camera. Interestingly, you get 20 hours of talk time and 10 days of standby on, get this, a single AAA battery.
