Hyundai confirms watchphone
Video calls not supported
Hyundai’s known for its cars, but surprised us all by launching headfirst into the mobile phone market. Now, however, the firm’s confirmed plans to make a watch.
Hyundai's MB-910: it's a watch... and a mobile phone
The MB-910 is more of a natural progression for Hyundai though, because the timepiece is actually a tri-band GSM/GPRS mobile phone with around three hours of talk time - 70 hours on standby - and polyphonic ringtones.
It can’t be used for video calls – unlike LG’s GD910 – but still sports a 132 x 176 touchscreen able to display WAP-captured content, SMS and MMS messages, and videos.
Talk to mates, send texts, watch video and see the time
Its face measures 58 x 44 16mm and the whole thing weighs just under 60g. Because Bluetooth’s supported, you’ll be able to chat using a headset or talk directly into the watch – just like Dick Tracy.
Hyundai’s MB-910 phone-cum-watch will go on sale in the UK for £200 ($275/€218) during Q2. ®
