Don't worry there will be a mini stylus for it or when combined with Google glass who knows you could type just by moving one's eyeballs around ... just suggesting so that this could be patented :)

2.4" touchscreen w/o physical keyboard/numpad? I believe the smallest I ever saw/know is the X10 mini and the keyboard/numpad on that one is very uncomfortable.

Had a Cowon D2 player and it came with a small stylus. Of course that was a worse screen using resistive instead of capacitive.

Probably would be better for watch/ Heart rate monitors than what's currently on the market for avid runners and the like.

To be honest... the idea is nice, but it looks very cheap and plastic =\ not really a man's watch...

The keyboard.....meh. Luckily androids voice recognition is fairly accurate these days.
