The very concept makes it somehow better. [@stephenfry]
I was right behind this until, just now, I realised I’d have no idea how to actually hold the thing to make a call. Unless it’s speakerphone, which is instant fail.
Why do they have to mount the screen portrait-wise? Why not landscape? Then you could actually fit a decent screen in there.
Seems like it’d be more sensible to make the phone horizontal, so it lays across your arm, rather than vertical and sticking out over your arm.
Blue tooth yes. And allow skins for when not in use to show time with a theme. I want one also as a belt buckle.. actually scratch that last one.. radiation will be too close to my “vitals”
Yup. That was the mistake Nokia made with the Internet Tablet series of devices, and why the iPhone killed ‘em (wah – 770 fanboy here). Phone-ness is cool.
This is exactly the kind of device that cries out for a flexible e-ink display, though.
And you know, it’s not *that* much bigger than my HRM…
You all can keep complaining. I’ll take one.
Not even Dick Tracy’s watch was this big and ugly.
Only Fry’s Brobdingnagianly-fat wrist could make such a huge, clunky monstrosity look small and workable.
On you or I it would probably look like a clipboard.
Watch phones are old hat. You can pick up a variety of styles from various vendors of chinese crapgadgets.
Am I the only one who thinks this would be 10x cooler (and probably a hell of a lot simpler to make) if instead of a phone itself, it was a Bluetooth-enabled unit you could pair to any cellphone?
