The Neptune Pine, as it is called, is a stand-alone device that you can plug your micro-SIM card in. Coming with a 2.4-inch screen that stretches the limits of wristwatch convenience, you get a modified version of Android…

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 :)

haha had the same thing in mind. Why don't they use AlphaNumeric keys instead of qwerty. Lol'd at this :))

I would like to see it on a hand. 2.4" isnt small exactly.. had few mobiles with that screen estate..

But I bet they came with harware keyboards/numpad.

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.

id rather have something that my phone pushes notifications too instead of a wrist phone.

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

As long as it can pair with Android/iOS/WP7-8/Symbian/(BB?) :D

I think these smart watches have promise.

Needs gesture-based equivalent of Graffiti for text entry.

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

Very cool. The obvious next step in portable electronics.

i think for what it is having a messaging app is ridiculous i dont mind having to read received mail on something like this, but typing thats a whole other story personally i think if the message is important enough u can pull your smartphone from your pocket and send a text or email etc.....
