Personally I’ve never quite warmed to the idea of cell/mobile phone watches, primarily on account of those I’ve come across being rather bulky, cumbersome affairs, but this Hyundai MB-910 Cell/Mobile Phone Watch certainly appears to be a step in the right direction – though its styling is, frankly, wholly questionable (why on earth did they think that roman numerals would be a worthy stylistic addition to this device’s overall appeal?).
Offering a talktime of up to three hours and a standby time of up to 70 hours, the Hyundai MB-910 – which measures in at 58 x 44 x 16mm – will come supplied with a Bluetooth headset, allowing handsfree operation, and is a triband 900/1800/1900 MHz device sporting a 132 x 176 resolution TFT display, MMS/SMS messaging capabilities, integrated web browser and Polyphonic ring tones.
Curious stylistic elements aside, the Hyundai MB-910, whilst not entirely warming us to the concept of chatting to our wrist in public without consequently being beamed up, is certainly one of the more accomplished watch phones we’ve seen to date but, for us at least, it just doesn’t quite hit the mark (sorry, cannot forgive the roman numerals – they are just so out of place and wholly unmerited).
Still, if you’re a little more forgiving and you quite fancy the idea of one of these strapped to your wrist, you should be able to pick one up soon in the UK for around the £200 price point.
