Result of searching for “phone watch” in Google
There are some ideas that never die even though they don’t seem to succeed after many tries. The phone built into a watch concept is usually credited to cartoonist Chester Gould who wrote about comic strip detective Dick Tracy’s two-way radio wrist watch in 1946 (it was later upgraded to provide video in 1964). I recall seeing a gigantic watch with a built-in phone at Comdex from, if I recall correctly, Seiko at Comdex in 1999. And, I saw a prototype Bluetooth watch accessory that worked with Windows Mobile smartphones a few years ago. This item noted by CrackBerry falls into the last category…
The InPulse watch CrackBerry discusses is not a BlackBerry, nor is it a phone. It is an accessory for a BlackBerry that can display notifications from a BlackBerry on the watch face.
Personally, I think it is a great idea that I’ve been watching being reimplemented in various forms for a decade now. I hope this idea takes off someday because I want one for either the iPhone or Windows Mobile phone (or maybe an Android).
