SMSTech M300 Phone Watch

Australia's SMS Technology today announced final details for its new M300 wristwatch. Originally planned for a release late last year, the multi-role device encountered delays due to its integration of several disparate technologies. A GSM phone is built-in for making phone calls, complete with GPRS Internet access and SMS texting; the device also has MP3 playback for entertainment and a Bluetooth 2.0 transmitter for transferring contacts, files, and songs to the onboard 64MB flash memory. The small size doesn't diminish battery life, according to the creator, as the watch will last for 200 minutes of continuous phone use.

The finished watch will be ready for an introduction in its home territory by April 25th, when it will sell for $510. A European launch is due later this year. The firm also anticipates a gold- and titanium-clad luxury model dubbed the M501 to appear in June, and an M700 business model with Office document synchronization. [via Tech Digest]
