Before the merging of mp3 players and cellphones became the hot hybrid, the average american dreamed of a little thing called the wristwatch phone. Maybe it had something to do with James Bond or the uber square-jawed detective Dick Tracy.
Where the dream comes from is not that important, because dream as we might, Holy Grail tech like the wristwatch phone and a video phone you actually use, will always be just a Consumer Electronics Show away. But now that AT&T is AT&T again:
I am sure they will dust off their wristwatch prototypes, buff off the edges and paint them a shiny white. If you can’t wait, check out this cool ad from 1994. I believe its from an issue of OMNI.
