Phenom phone watch

On Monday, Phenom announced the release of its Phenom SpecialOPS to add to its line of watch phones. The Phenom SpecialOPS has a tri-band GSM radio and is unlocked for use with most cellular networks. Users can send text messages with the SpecialOPS using the 1.3-inch color touchscreen with the included stylus or the keypad incorporated into the wristband. The watch is also capable of playing back MP3 audio files or MP4 videos and displaying JPG or GIF images.

The built-in 1.3-megapixel camera captures images and videos to store on the included 256MB microSD memory card. Phone conversations are carried out using the built-in microphone and speaker, and it's unclear whether the Bluetooth support is the updated version 2.0 + EDR allowing for the connection of wireless headsets. Polyphonic ringtones are supported, while battery life is rated at about two hours of talk time and 120 hours of standby time.

The Phenom SpecialOPS is now available, with prices starting at $295.
