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.

Meh. Good riddance, Siemens. Great company name, by the way. Who thought that up? Dr. Jizzem?

Maybe BenQ can focus on their core product line now. LOWER THE COST OF VIDEO PROJECTORS, DUDES!
