N688 watch phone
China seems to have fallen in love with watchphones, with several available on various sites.
The N688 depicted below is one of the plainer affairs, but still packs in Java games, text input and a media player. Bluetooth is standard on phones of this variety.
Whether the dorkiness of talking on a Bluetooth headset is better or worse than talking to a watch is not explained.
Price $81 (51)

sWaP Nova EC107 – the World's smallest talker
Shenzhen Hop Industrial claims its EC107 mini Mobile Phone is, at just 40.3g, the planet's lightest handset.
You'll add another couple if you chose to slot in a Micro SD card, which seems to slot into the USB plug that folds out and allows charging.
A two-inch touchscreen drives an on-board FM radio and media player.
Hop Industrial proudly shows off certificates from the Guinness Book of World Records to prove its phone is the planet's least large, and we certainly think it will turn heads in places where Guinness is consumed. If it's possible to focus on the phone after the first pint.
If you purchase any of the phones mentioned - or have done so in the past - do let us know how they went. ®
Ten weird Chinese mobile phones
Re: Quad SIM mobile
Agreed, I've seen this on several occasions:
it's not uncommon and actually very handy (German pun intended)
the travelling aspect simply makes it more viable than less.
Quad SIM mobile
Travelling regularly between two countries I do have a SIM for each for private use - in a dual SIM device. The third one, now in a separate handset, would be for business use. And I could easily add a forth one, e.g. prepaid, with a favourable deal for data. Pretty sure it's not just me...
Is it wrong...
that i really want a watch phone? Like really really? I could use a tablet for facebook, and web and emails. Then turn into dick tracy when i want to make calls. If it does wifi hotspoting then all the better!
Re: ...that would be awesome!
Broke after 2 days?
Well, their brochure did say 'USB that make phone call' [singular].
I want that star phone sooo bad, just so I can whip it out when I get the "my battery is dead...can I make a quick call.." request.
