Hyundai Mobile Launching Wristwatch Phone

Clearly the theme started by LG is catching...

So it seems manufacturers ”do” want us all talking to our wrists in the future…


This week Hyundai Mobile joins LG in launching its own mobile phone watch in the shape of the ‘MP-910’. Essentially a more budget friendly alternative to the GD910, the similarly model numbered MP-910 goes back to basics.


It uses a 132 x 176 pixel 65k colour touchscreen display, has support for Bluetooth 2.0 for streaming calls directly to a wireless headset, supports SMS and MMS (come on, if a ”watch” can do it Apple…), and lasts a remarkable 70 hours in standby and a more typical three hours in call.

At just 58 x 44 x 16 mm and weighing a mere 58g the MP-910 is also pretty light. As for the omissions, they range from the disappointing (3G) to the more realistic (camera, GPS, WiFi). There’s also no word on whether support will be included for either MP3 playback or expandable memory. That said with the watch phone coming in at a reasonably competitive £200 sim free (we’re unaware of any networks adopting it at this stage) it could prove something of a slow burn fashion accessory.


“The Hyundai Mobile brand is about the latest cutting edge technology at a price point which is accessible to the masses,” said Hyundai Mobile director Roland Prinz. “We have high hopes for the MB-910’s entry to the UK market. We are delighted to confirm that we intend to make the MB-910 available in the UK and we will announce our specific plans shortly.”


So that’s two phone watches in quick succession and I’ll be interested to see whether they mark the start of a new trend or just the latest passing fad…
