Dick Tracy's Swatch
Available this month in the UK, the Aigo F029 is capable of playing video, photos, text, and music. It claims to have 4.5 hours of battery life for music playback, and 2.5 hours for watching MP4 video on its 160 x 128 OLED screen. The watches are priced at £79 for the 512MB, and £99 for the 1GB version.
Despite its Fisher-Price aesthetics and bulky profile, it occurs to me that this could be the future for PDAs. Most people already wear a watch, so why not add a SIM card and Bluetooth to create a mobile phone/PDA to an item that most people wear already?
