Recently HEXUS brought you a review of the Siemens SL65, amidst news of Siemens paying BenQ to take their mobile phone division off their hands. Today, Digi Times is reporting that BenQ will be marketing their new P50 PDA phone under the Siemens brand.
BenQ is likely to begin selling its P50 PDA phone under the Siemens brand name in Europe in late September or early October when the company officially takes over Siemens’ mobile handset business unit, the Chinese-language Commercial Times reported today.

The Taiwan vendor is also expected to introduce its first dual-brand BenQ-Siemens handset in February 2006, the paper noted.

As Siemens has not been a strong player in the smartphone segment, BenQ has decided to initially launch its P50 PDA phone under a single-brand, in order to make up for the lack of new products during the four-month period from October 2005 to February 2006, the paper said.
