Like it or not... The Galaxy Gear represents the next step for mobile communication devices and now that the 'hacker' community is embracing it as a platform, things can only get much more exciting.
Let's see what kind of 'copying' certain other companies will attempt as they jump in (unfashionably) late to the wearable electronics party with some locked-down, same old tired mobile OS, easily damaged aluminum-clad trinket in a slightly different package.

Yes, maybe they can copy the success of the Gear, too. 50k in two months? An iWatch would do that in a day.

That's "sell in," as in "to retailers." Analysts and Korean newspaper Yonhap estimate actual sales to customers at around 50k, with Best Buy and other retailers saying they have a 30+% return rate. Even Samsung confirmed that the 800k was "sell in," not "sell through."

Of course, it comes as a gift with every Note 3 in many countries...

50,000 in tiny South Korea by itself . 800,000 world wide.

Candy Crush on a smart watch screen? I'd pull my hair out.

Android devs are truly amazing. I wish other platforms were as open because I'd love to see what could be accomplished.

Custom ROM? Fine.
Every number in the spec list and benchmark results are invalid now.
This include the battery life. Worse now, most probably.

Or better if future developments include a custom kernel with more intelligent CPU governors / undervolting.

Do you seriously think those hackers measure the power consumption with every single step?
Most probably they don't even have the necessary instruments.
I'd like to share your optimism. I really do.

But how do I text my contact from this small screen device? Anyway, this thing is so expensive.
