Hyundai Mobile has announced it is to launch a watch phone in the UK.

Likely beating LG's touch watch phone to market, Hyundai says the new GPRS tri-band wrist-based blower will go on sale late in the second quarter of 2009.

The "MB-910" (compare to LG's "GD910") phone watch includes features such as a Bluetooth headset, email client, video playback, music player and touchscreen controls.

Weighing in at 58 grams and measuring 58 x 44 x 16mm with talk-time of up to 3 hours and 70 hours on standby, users can use the bundled headset, or talk directly into the watch itself for that secret service look.

Others specs include a 132 x 176 pixel resolution approx 22mm x 30mm display, a WAP browser, MMS and SMS messaging and 64 polyphonic ringtones.

Hyundai Mobile UK says the MB-910 will go on sale in silver for a "competitively priced" £200 sold on a SIM-free basis.
