About time, right? A cell phone that you wear on your wrist, has a 1.3″ color LCD display that you can watch video/movies/photos on. Of course, you can listen to MP3s and take pictures with its 1.3 Megapixel camera.
The TFT screen is a touchscreen, and it has handwriting recognition similar to Palm’s gestures. For connectivity, there’s an integrated mini USB jack, a (1GB) microSD slot and it also has built-in Bluetooth.
Oh yes, lest we forget, it’s also a cell phone! GSM based with SIM cards, with a claimed 8-12 hr talk time. I’d like to see this available in typical retail outlets; currently uou have to call a toll-free # to order. I have to wonder what the quality of the phone calls is like.
You have to admit, the idea of a cell phone that sits on your wrist constantly does have its appeal.

The clarity of the call is actually quite good. I put my SIM card in from my iPhone into this and tested it using both just the watch itself and the bluetooth headphones it comes with. The watch is really loud. Like annoyingly so. The headphones work really well and the quality is just as good as any cell i have had. one other thing i noted was the reception was quite a bit stronger with the watch than with my iphone, but that may say more about my iphone than the watch.
