It occurs to me that an intermediate and less expensive step would be a bluetooth enabled interactive watch which uses the phone in your pocket (or pad in the vicinity) as the control base.  This could be pulled out whenever the 'big' screen is required, with the watch display as more of a guick and continuous updating snapshot of what's up.

I too can see this for video.  I'm sitting at my desk typing this, and my wrist is pointed in the general direction of my face, doesn't seem like it would take much to point the camera at it, or use face recognitian to orient the picture properly.

Aren't these interesting times?

shehan, I'll still have trouble with a "larger" screen unless there are a) fewer things to look at on it, and b) they are larger icons/images/numbers/text. But maybe a larger screen will help.

@Nancy- On the go video conferencing is really helpful for people who travel a lot and need to be connected.

@Ann – Lets see if Sony comes up with a bigger screen watch to help us navigate and use it better. I am sure the screen size would be a problem for most of us.

@a.saji – You never know, what if you could remove your watch and place it on table focusing the camera towards you. Or have a portable stand where you could place the watch on a table and start your video conference.

@Greg – yes there are still apps that will work well in the small screen. Reading texts answering calls could be some of them. The idea of having a camera and phone function for video conference is a good idea.

@nancy – yes this might be too small for some of us, as the screen is only few inches. I don't think we could expect a bigger smart watch from Sony.

@a.saji- Now you could answer your calls, read text messages, Facebook updates without reaching the mobile phone on your pocket. What more could we expect from technology.

@Rob – A very good idea, Smart watch could save the world of watches. As you said most of us don't wear watches since we have the mobile device. Now it's time to where the watch again (smart watch).
