Only days after we brought you news of the Dick Tracy video watch phone, another one gets released by the company Phenom who actually have a history in making watch-phones.
The company whose US phone number is 1.888.9WATCHPHONE, has just launched their latest model Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the SpecialOPS.
This version of their established series of watch phones isn’t solely touch screen, unlike some of their others, it also comes with a keypad for dialling on the strap.
This isn’t a huge let down, as it’s a watch phone for Larry’s sake. A W A T C H P H O N E !!
Its 1.3-inch 260k pixel screen is capable of playing MP3 and MP4 media, from the 2GB memory or even from a microSD card. Besides just making calls, it also has Bluetooth built in, a microphone, a speaker, and a digital camera that’s only 130 Pixels.
Only? It’s a watch phone?!!?? A W A T C H P H O N E !!!
In terms of network access, it runs from 900, 1800 and 1900 frequencies. That offers up GSM, GPRS and also WAP functionality. With a battery life of 2hrs talktime and 120 on standby, per battery
Sadly, it doesn’t have 3G of WIFI abilities.
What are we saying? Who cares, it’s a watch phone. A W A T C H P H O N E !!!!
Everyone should have one of these and be dammed with touch screen playthings, 8megapixel monsters or QWERTY keyboard notebook substitutes.
Seeing as everyone uses their phone anyway as a watch to tell the time, why not just dump the phone at get a watch phone.
The SpecialOPS from Phenom, comes unlocked, SIM free at $295.00 from their website seen here.
If 2008 was the year of the Smartphone, as all the pundits are saying Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it’s shaping up for 2009 to be the year of Dick Tracy’s watch phone. Shame it’s only 79 years too late.
