Phenom Watch Phones; powered by S60?

After all the buzz brought on yesterday by the announcement that LG will be showcasing a GSM watch phone at CES next week, another company with several similar products already available decided to feed off of the heat. Phenom (don’t worry, we’ve never heard of them either) offers a pretty wide selection of unlocked GSM watch phones and if that’s your thing you’ll also be happy to know they’re very affordable. With current promotions accounted for, Phenoms product range in price from $195 to $295 and include features such as video cameras, micoSD card slots and MP3/MP4 players. If you can work your way past the styling these could actually be pretty cool little toys. There are some questions we have however, and one is brought on by the image of the company’s flagship model, dubbed “Special Ops”, seen above. Despite the fact that an S60 watch phone would be pretty cool, we’re pretty positive that these little guys aren’t packing Symbian. Why then, are the screens of the watch above displaying a theme from popular Symbian themestress Babi? We love her themes as much as anyone else but I think she may find it interesting to learn that they’re watch phone-compatible. Oh, and we hope Phenom got permission to use those images…
