Is the time right for watch phones?

Dutch company comes out with innovative design.

Van Der Led

Maybe there's something to this latest watch phone trend after all. Barely a day after posting an item about a model that didn't send people rushing for the vomitoria, we see that another one has surfaced to pique our interest.

The WM2 from Netherlands-based Van Der Led (we'd never heard of them either) has come up with an innovative solution to the obvious challenge of limited real estate on such gadgets, embedding a keypad on the wristband.

Other specs include Bluetooth, 1GB of built-in storage, 300 minutes of talk time, and 240 hours on standby, according to Dvice. You can also use it as a media player because it can handle MP3s and even video files, though we wouldn't recommend trying to watch them on its 1.3-inch screen unless they're about a flea circus.
