Samsung intros skinny watchphone
Pre-empts LG's GD910 launch
Samsung has unveiled a super-slim watchphone, just weeks before the impending UK launch of LG’s GD910 Dick Tracy device.
Samsung's S9110 watchphone
The S9110 isn’t Samsung’s first watchphone – the firm launched a 2G phone-cum-watch back in 2003, but at 11.98mm thick the S9110 is thought to be the world’s thinnest watchphone so far.
Although Samsung’s keeping mum about the device’s connectivity specifications for the time being, the company has confirmed that the S9110 features a 1.7in scratch-proof touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.1 and support for MP3 audio files.
The watchphone doesn’t appear to have a user-facing camera for videocalls, which could mean that LG’s version – which does support videocalls – will be more highly sort after by tech addicts.
Samsung’s S9110 watchphone will be available in France next month for €450 (£387/$640), but it’s not yet known when the gadget will appear in Blighty. ®
Have u seen the new NS08
Well i think this phone is going to be a flop as it will be a hassel to use speacially for business people and youngsters. But have u guys seen NS08 i think this upcoming phone will left all phones behind and every one will love it . Check this video out. http://www.domesticutilities.com/pmg.htm
look ma, no....
eerm... so where do we stand with hands-free use of this product in the car?
NO NO NO NO NO!
Look, this thing is shite. It's bling. The signal quality WILL be terrible (it's hard enough designing antenna for the inside of aerial-less mobiles), it'll fry your wrist or not shout loud enough to be heard to the network, and it'll cost a fortune.
I've worked in mobile comms since 1999 and frankly there are some tech hurdles that can't be overcome - this device is just plain shite.
I like it
Its Cool As F.....lip, and thats praise indeed from a luddite such as myself
I have made video calls on the 10th and 11th july 2009
My wife had gone to london. and when we tried to make the calls out of 5-6 we did only one time was we able to see each other without some silly colour cock up happening.
And was using K810i and Vario2 to do it. and its in the mins from t-mobile from what i can tell..
Only did it so the kids could "see" there mother lol.
But when it did work right it was clear. and at least there is no limit to the amount you can do over the 3g unlike most "usb 3g modems" that do not like you to stream video lol...
Paris cause even her "video" was not as bad as video calls look lol
