Munster sees wearable computers being an important product line for Apple
The Piper Jaffray analyst does feel that sometime over the next 10+ years, wearable computers could replace the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad and support voice calls, navigation, texting and quick searches through the use of voice control. With the possibility of cheaper screens in eyeglasses or projectors replacing the more expensive display on the Apple iPhone, Apple will be able to produce a cheaper product to sell to emerging markets.
The iOS smartwatch that Apple and Intel are supposedly working on, would feature an OLED screen with ITO (indium tin oxide) coated glass.While not much is known about the device, speculation calls for it to be introduced sometime in the first half of this year.

Only if it has a large visible Apple logo for the fanboys.

He said that a wearable computer is important after the annoucement of google glass? A little late in the game to say something like that if he's trying to take credit for it.
I think there might have been other prior annoucements to google glass, but Im not sure.
Like the Pebble and Sony watch, etc... Even though they werent at this stage "yet".
Id like to see those contacts.

"... Apple will be able to produce a cheaper product to sell to emerging markets."
Cost for Production = Cheaper.
Cost for Customers = More Expensive.
