Pirates of the Caribbean Fossil Watch Australian SMS Technology ships the M500 touch screen wrist phone (see hi-res photos). Yes you read that correct, SMS Technology ships the M500 not the former model M300, which they announced in Summer of 2006.

The company has converted the previous orders of patient early adopters for M300 into the more advanced M500 and is offering only the M500 going forward.

The SMS Technology M500 mobile wristphone is water resistant and is a Quadband GSM phone supporting frequencies 850Mhz, 900Mhz, 1800Mhz and 1900Mhz.
Other features of the M500 are a 1.5 inch color touch screen with 120 x 160px resolution, 128MB Built-in Memory, MP3 and MP4 player, Bluetooth 2.0, USB, Java, WAP, SMS, MMS, talk time of 200 minutes and a standby time of 80 hours.

Forum posts on the SMS Technology indicated that only 500 M500 are currently available for direct order. I assume the company wants to switch to a distributor model. The current price f a M500 is 1,000 AUD (~$820 USD). Waiting for a local distributor to carry the cool looking wrist phone might make it more affordable.

If you are one of the early adopters that ordered a M500 please email us when you received it.
