    It would be cool if Apple someday made a smaller iPhone that was a watch too. What are your opinions? :cool:

    it would be cool if the iwatch was like 3d hologram. it pops out and makes a big virtual screen. you could read and surf the web, watch movies, and get directions. and if you look down to the actual physical screen it has a camera fore facetime. and when you press the big blue button you become invisible, this is called icloke the new selling point of the iwatch.

    but joking aside if it was decently priced and not useless i would buy it because anything apple makes is great.

    Well if the steel bands on the side are there to "boost the signal", forget about it.

    I can see another message now coming from Jobs: "There is no reception issue. You should not wear the watch on your wrist." :p

    Indeed. But seriously, that idea could have huge potential somewhere along the horizon.

    i think in the pics you posted it looks too much like the old iphones, but i think the new iphone 4 design would look sweet. (you know but without antenna problems)

    Probably not, only if it were under $50
    I can't imagine paying over $100 for a watch [that can probably do a lot more]

    and think about it, typing on the keyboard

    It doesn't necessary have to have a phone function or even a web browser in it for me that I'd use it alot. See the left picture above for what I'd like. Basically that with a camera in it for when I'm on fishing trips, and don't want to bring expensive stuff to get lost/damaged and to take some pics here and there.

    Features wanted:

    Not too big

    Calculator

    Contacts

    Calendar

    Weather (If they can squeeze a 3g chip in there)

    And possibly a camera (Not a front one)

    great idea! the actual band is the antenna, but it has a coating on the back and side that doesn't interfere with the signal. only the part of the band that faces outward is uncoated. plus it has a projector that works like a smart board for surfing the web and typing. the physical screen on your hand is used fro face time and to answer calls

    I doubt I would. But I also doubt I'll have to worry about cause I doubt Apple will ever come out with such a thing.

    I wouldn't want it to be an iPhone or an iPod. Just a really elegant watch withan incredible design and some cool features/apps.

    I wouldn't buy an iWatch or any watch made by Apple, but I would love for them to release one. It would be an easy way to spot complete tools.

    What? Why do you need WiFi for it to keep time?

    With your design, how wouod it get weather? I assume there is a connection. Apple wouldn't make something if u need to manually set the time.
