Siemens is on the right track with this concept for a miniature phone of the future. No timeframe or price was given on the new Siemens phone but Samsung, Ericsson, AT&T, NTT, and Swatch have already announced wrist phones and others are expected to reach the U.S. market before the end of the year.

Siemens Information and Communication Mobile (IC Mobile) showcased its vision of the future of communication with a new range of prototypes and product designs. “Miniaturization” and “mobility” were the key concepts behind the company’s futuristic exhibits. Siemens’ Wristphone – a miniaturized triple band GSM mobile phone that can be worn on the arm.

Siemens’ Wristphone – offering voice dialing, hands-free operation and triple band GSM technology – unites top-level functionalities in a compact device the size of a watch. This prototype mobile phone with an integrated antenna weighs just 36 grams and has a volume of only 28 cm3. The device runs on a 550 mAh battery and uses an ordinary SIM card. The Wristphone combines elegant design with the practicality of a timepiece – making it an attractive and permanent mobile companion.

Design studies derived from the Wristphone concept included miniaturized mobile phones that – adapted to users’ lifestyles – can be worn, for example, as clips and pendants.
