Phenom Dream watch-phone: dual-SIM but no 3G

We're not going to let Phenom Communications get away with calling their Dream watch-phone "elegant", but we'll concede that it's pretty advanced for its ilk.  The $395 wrist-worn handset has a 1.3-inch color touchscreen and separate numeric keypad, but Phenom have managed to squeeze two SIM slots inside.  Unfortunately, it seems that decision meant there was no room for a 3G radio, so you're stuck with quadband GSM/GPRS.

You do get a 1.3-megapixel camera, microSD card slot (content with up to 2GB chips), Bluetooth, vibrate alert and an FM radio.  There's also SMS/MMS support, a media player app for photos, audio and video, and a speakerphone.

Sadly the battery is only good for up to two hours talktime or 120 hours standby, which somewhat undermines Phenom's suggestion that this is the ideal two-line option for the frequent traveller.  Still, it looks slightly less rubbish than a lot of watch-phones we see, and it's cheaper than LG and Samsung's respective versions, so if you're desperate to strap a cellphone to your arm, Phenom is an option.
