    I apologize if this is not posted in the right section.

    It would be incredible to see the ipod nano as a wrist watch phone. The ipod nano needs a camera in the front and needs to be waterproof. I'm sure tons of people would love this because they can use Facetime, Skype, Google chat and be able to see the person they are talking to. Imagine not having a phone in your pocket, it would be one less thing to carry.

    Phone watches were invented a long time ago. There was a big hype when they came out yet nonetheless they weren't such a hit. If apple were to go one step back in technology to bring a new line forward it would be a pretty lame and desperate cry for sales. Personally, I'd see the idea flop. Watches aren't meant to be phones for a reason. They're meant to tell the time and that's it. People need big screens and a small 2" screen won't help web browsing, games or videos. Sony just released a watch which links up to their phone systems which as well as telling the time alerts the user if they have a missd call, unread text or new notification. They're also able to read it directly from the watch but need I use the phone to reply. It only helps when in situations where you can't take ur phone out.
    It's a good idea if you thought it, but it won't happen as far as I'm concerned and apple definitely wont go back and take simething already invented to put into their new collection.
