Samsung's GT-S1100 wristphone: does it support video calls?

The GT-S1100 device is described as having a “full touch screen”, in addition to Bluetooth and speakerphone capabilities.

Samsung displayed the phone in a glass case at Mobile World Congress this week. Unfortunately, the S1100 wasn’t powered-up, so we can’t definitively say that it supports videocalls – unlike LG’s wristphone.
