First published: 23-07-2009

Samsung has announced that it is to release its own spy-esque gadget device, it has transpired.

In a move that is no doubt targeting its Korean arch-rival LG, the Samsung S9110 watch phone is to provide its users with a 1.76-inch touch screen which is capable of all kinds of fancy tricks, making use of Bluetooth and email support.

Those wanting to leave their mp3 player at home may also be free of the extra technology, with the watch being fitted with portable music playback as part of the overall package.

Furthermore, many James Bond fans around the world may also be impressed by voice recognition technology, not to mention the speakerphone - all included in a body no more than 12mm thick, making it only slightly bulkier than a conventional watch.

Samsung continues to grow in the current market, now employing approximately 138,000 people in 124 offices in 56 countries.
