Qualcomm Toq goes up for pre-order for $349.99

wireless charging dock, and a buttonless interface. It has a 1.55-inch display, and weighs just 3.2 ounces. It will require Android 4.0.3 for smartphone connectivity, but Qualcomm said it is considering iOS support in the future.The pre-order right now is only for the black version of the watch, the white model still isn't available. The Toq is promising a Mirasol display (which is legitimately something that we're interesting to see), "multiple days of battery life", a
Of course, whatever is promised, $349.99 is a tough price tag to swallow for a device that still has so many question marks around it. It is more of a proof of concept for Qualcomm though, and isn't expected to find a wider market.

The clock is a straight rip-off of the Sony Smartwatch 2 and the watch probably won't be any better. But it sure is $150 more...

I liked the construction when i held it. and the display is really amazing . but it's not LED kind of amazing.. it's the true technology that is the best for human eyes. when I look at the display of tog.. it's so smooth for the eyes to look at... that no any LED screen can match up.

Who in hell would get a smart watch AT ALL.These things serve zero needs right now and are only being produced in the vain hope that they can make mad money off it because someone suggested that Apple is hoping to do that. Why is everyone so hell bent on making this things happen when there is go chance of it ever being useful enough by itself to warrant a purchase?

Because both of them serve different purposes. BTW, miniaturization costs money. For the same reason a phone is costlier than a tablet with lesser specs (compare iPhone and iPad). It might be a new concept for you, but better check out. BTW, Gear doesn't cost same as Nexus 5 "everywhere".Out at my place, Gear costs around $150 less than Nexus 5. And that is the standard rate.

Everyone understands that smartwatches aren't really what people want right now. I think i have seen one person with one since the first Sony one came out. THATS IT! But the truly sad part, is that when Apple does decide to launch one, it will sell like hot cakes. For no other reason than because Apple did it; and thats truly pathetic.
