BenQ Cans Mobile Phone Division

BenQ is officially canning their mobile phone division, formerly known as BenQ-Siemens. Reports say that Siemens was going down the toilet when BenQ picked them up, and couldn't be salvaged. The BenQ-Mobile employees—that will potentially also be canned—seem to think otherwise saying that BenQ "systematically cannibalized" the phone division. Oh snap!

Oh well, no more BenQ phones.

Edit: It was just the German BenQ-Mobile division that was canned. Asia's market is still going strong, so yes there will still be BenQ phones, but none for the U.S., as usual. Bloops.
