Samsung unveils Galaxy Gear smartwatch - 1.63" screen, camera, 70 apps











quote:

The Gear will instead ship with a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 320 x 320. That strap-mounted camera, for its part, is designed to capture low-res shots and 10-second 720p videos, and includes a 1.9-megapixel BSI sensor and an auto-focus lens.


quote:

The big surprise here is third-party applications support -- there will be a total of 70 partner programs at launch, including sharing apps like Evernote and Path, fitness companions like RunKeeper and MyFitnessPal, and a handful of other offerings, such as TripIt, Line, Vivino and even eBay.


quote:

The device is powered by an 800MHz processor and a 315 mAh non-removable cell, which Samsung reps say should provide up to a day of "regular" use. There are two built-in mics (with noise cancellation support), a speaker, Bluetooth 4.0, an accelerometer and gyroscope, 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM.

One day, you might be that guy wearing one, saying "I'm that guy who called smart watches gay" - and then you'll say "I guess it really doesn't matter though, because I posted 1150 times in a month, so I'm not really an authority to call anything that gay..."

I don't really get the point. I mean I love smartphones as much as anyone but why would you need a second device that is smaller, does less, and still requires data?

No removal battery. Does not come with a stylus, or micro sd slot. And 1.63" display? How does Samsung expect us to update our facebook status, or play candy crush on such a tiny display. Pass!!

How soon before this -



replaces this? -



We all know this guy can't function without one unlike Manning, who can keep it all in his head.

I also think NFL teams will go with the iWatch which will somehow be integrated with the iPads that are already used extensively on the side-lines.
