What is "BenQ"?

BenQ is a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer that creates products ranging from DVD burners to monitors and digital cameras. The company also manufactures mobile phones for the Asian market, and had plans for expansion into the world market with its acquisition of Siemens Mobile, allowing it to form BenQ Siemens. The Munich based BenQ Siemens Mobile venture failed to become successful, filing for bankruptcy in 2006. BenQ has once again pulled back into serving primarily its home Asian market.
