February 1, 2008 The wrist watch phone is one of those inventions we thought we would all be wearing by now, but despite the appearance of numerous designs in recent years seeking to make the Dick Tracey style communications device a commercial reality, the idea is still a long way from reaching its potential. The latest example to cross the Gizmag desk, and one of the most impressively designed and specced units we've seen to date is the Cellwatch M500. Billed as the world's smallest mobile watch, the M500 incorporates a 1.5-inch (128x160) color OLED touchscreen, 128 MB Memory, 80 hours standby time, plus web-browsing, Bluetooth, MP3 and video playback capabilities.

Designed by SMS Technology Australia, the M500 also features full sms functionality, USB connectivity for software uploads, downloads, 300 number memory storage and 40 embedded tones in a slim-line, 60 gm package that looks and wears like a standard watch... and yes, it even tells the time.

An initial release and official launch took place in November last year and according to MyMobile Watch, the product will be available again from March 2008.
