BenQ-Siemens SL91 Mobile Phone Gets Touchy with MicroNav Technology

BenQ-Siemens, the sixth largest mobile phone handset manufacturer in the world, has selected Interlink’s patented MicroNav technology to enable the back-lit user touchpad on it’s new SL91 mobile phone.

Interlink’s patented Micronav sensor gives the new SL91 user a multimedia interface experience. A back-lit transparent FSR(R)-based keypad is mounted beneath the phone’s smooth black control surface. The keypad lights up when touched, or when it detects incoming calls, giving the user a combination of visual, tactile and audio interaction. Along with its elegant industrial design, the SL91 offers enhanced functionality including an integrated 3G feature set, a 3.2 mega pixel auto focus camera, a second VGA camera that can be directed towards the speaker during video calls, and a 2-inch QVGA mobile display. Other features include an integrated MP3 player, a stereo RDS FM radio, music download capability via Bluetooth, internal data storage using Micro-SD memory cards and a matching base station for hands-free telephone or video conferencing.
