BenQ mobile phones have been struggling to get a foot in the ever growing mobile phone market and now plan taking the budget phone route to appeal to a larger section of the mobile buying populace. Their new offering in the budget music phone segment is the BenQ C36 which is a good looking mobile phone that aims to keep the budget crowd happy and connected. For this, the C36 comes with a smart dual coloured form factor that looks a little like Nokia’s music edition offerings. Entertainment on this phone means, a dash of music with an MP3 player and FM radio. To listen to a wide range of songs, the C36 gives you expandable memory with the MicroSD slot. These, in addition to the 1.3 megapixel camera are essentially the prime features of the C36.
One other nifty little feature is the presence of an e-book reader which is a very pleasant surprise. A two inch colour screen is the primary interface to the C36’s functions and this phone will see a release in the Indonesian market first followed by other markets. So, if you are looking for a funky looking, no nonsense phone that is basic yet pretty functional, you might want to sample BenQ’s C36.
