The cute BenQ-Siemens Q-Fi EF51 music phone

Musicphones are huge these days, with just about every handset coming out of Korea sporting some form of tune-playing ability, keeping your head bobbing during your daily commute. The latest full-featured phone isn’t emerging from Seoul, however, it’s from our good friends over at BenQ-Siemens. The Q-Fi EF51 isn’t the skinniest phone on the block, but its iPod-esque form factor is strangely appealing.

The small 128x 128 pixel TFT display will keep you in the know of what’s playing, and the large exterior buttons (look at the size of what appears to be the call and end buttons) will make control a breeze. A 1.3 megapixel camera has also been included, as well as USB connectivity and a MiniSD expansion slot. Of course, it has an integrated music player – capable of throwing down MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, and AAC+ files – in addition to 3D surround sound technology.

While prices will be “determined locally”, the BenQ-Siemens EF51 should start shipping some time this month in both white and black-cased varieties. Oh, and if you’re wondering where the numeric keypad is, the front face (the portion underneath the screen) flips down so you can dial like a normal person.
