Yet Another Watch Phone

Mar 30 2003 - 12:43 AM ET | Samsung

A few days ago we mentioned the DoCoMo watch phone... Samsung recently announced plans for a similar device. It's a pretty feature rich watch/phone:

* 8-Bit color screen
* Polyphonic Rings

The obvious fault we see in these new Dick Tracey devices is that you have to keep charging them. Casio says the battery will last 80 hours, but since when has the maker been right about battery time? Most people won't want to have to plug-in their watch every few days--we're all used to having monthly uptimes for wristwatches.
