As you may recall on my latest trip to Canada I wasn’t sure if my CDMA phone would work so I took a GSM phone and a WiFi phone as well. These are the chargers I carried on my trip:
- CDMA phone
- WiFi Phone
- GSM phone
So although I am already up to my neck in chargers I decided to get another device that needs one. Thankfully the Tissot has a slim USB charger which shouldn’t take up too much space or weight. At some point soon – the masochist that I am, I expect to have an iPOD nano which means yet another charger.
The watch also has the ability to work with MSN Direct meaning it can accept data transmitted over a data network running on an FM radio frequency.
I can get stock quotes, news, and sync with my Outlook calendar.
What I am waiting for is two-way data capability so I can use this watch to carry on a wireless VoIP conversation. Now that is going to be amazing when it happens. The challenge here is figuring out how to power the watch so you can have normal conversations. As it is the watch needs charging every few days or so. Another concern Is heat dissipation as WiFi phones get very hot these days – imagine a WiFi watch!
On a separate note, expect a huge announcement in the WiFi telephony area soon. Hint, we are reviewing an amazing WiFi phone that works on the world’s largest VoIP network and is made by one of the largest consumer electronics/tech companies. I can’t give you more than that but keep checking TMCnet for the latest on when this news hits. We should have the first product review on the market.
Until then I am trying to figure out how to use the watch and get it all set up. I hope it isnt as much work as I fear to get it up and running.
