First CES sighting- Fossil PDA Watch

Fossil_wrist_pdaYou know the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is big news when Good Morning America has a live segment from the trade show floor.  One of the first new gadgets they demonstrated for the television audience is the Fossil Wrist PDA, a Palm OS based watch (and I use that term lightly) that while large provides a full Palm PDA strapped to your wrist.  The PDA experience comes complete with a tiny stylus that slides into a silo on the watch which you are guaranteed to lose shortly after buying the watch.  Engadget also has an item this morning about the ill-fated watch that was rumored for a long time, cancelled by Fossil, and now resurrected again.  The watch is so, large, that I don’t see a lot of people rushing out to get one anytime soon.  OK, maybe real geeks who have all sorts of gadgets strapped to their belts might get one, but they’d still have all those gadgets around their waist anyway, I’ll bet.  Nobody has mentioned how heavy this watch is but it looks huge.  Why not just put a wrist strap on an OQO and wear that?  Oh right, you’d probably burn your arm.  $249.
