Interesting, but like the Android 'Galactopus' I reviewed a while back, I'm not seeing any ground-breaking technology here. I especially don't care for its reliance on the smartphone for its functionality; if I read the article correctly, it would seem that, to get any use out of this, you have to own a smartphone - or its technological equivalent - to make it work. If that is the case, then this is even less capable than the Android with touch-screen technology.

As far as looks go, it appears to be a much more comfortable and attractive piece than the Android offering, and it looks like you get a variety of colors in which it can be ordered. It would seem that this one is 'upgradable,' as well. Nonetheless, I'm not willing to buy a smartphone just so I can sport another 'Nixonesque' piece on my wrist...guess I'm a not-so-secret Luddite at heart. Shocked

The main reason I traded my Iphone for an Android based Samsung Galaxy last year, is the countless restrictions Apple impose to their costumers.

This.

I'm able to get 3G service on my laptop by tethering my Android to it, for free. Great for when I'm somewhere without Wifi.

Ron, you'll have to show me the phone next tie I'm in Peace River. I still have an iPhone 4, I don't know which way I'm going to go with my next phone. I hear Siri is pretty impressive, a buddy of mine will always have an iPhone only because he is completely set up at home with Apple products.

Been an iPhone user since the first one. I've also owned every iPhone made and each one has exceeded my needs and expectations.

Will do. And you should see my bro's newest version Windows 8 phone as well. Bring me some watches to look at, too.
