NTT DoCoMo plans to introduce a cell phone watch within this year - a detailed release date or price wasn't given so far.

Beside the classic phone functionalities, the watch which has a dimension of 171,5 x 40,4 x 18,5 mm and a talk time of 2 hours and stand-by of 8 days, the "Wristomo" called watch will also support i-mode as well as mobile data with a speed up to 64 kbps.

To make voice calls, the watch have to be removed from the arm and hold onto the ear like a typical phone.

As far as I was able to read, the Wristomo will sync with Microsoft Outlook. If it includes any wireless ports like IrDA or even Bluetooth wasn't announced so far. According to NTT DoCoMo the Wristomo can be preordered now.

That's a pretty good concept, also holding it to the ear as a normal phone is better then fumbling with a wired headset and wow - this watch is faster then today's GPRS phones! :o

Well, with this kind of gadgets, we will see sooner or later all over the world, I wonder who will use a Microsoft "Spot" watch?
