Most all situations away, I have a pack or a briefcase. Perfect for small pad, and mostly, I use my phone as a PDA anyway.
Now, with this Mini, I wouldn't need a dumbphone - it is one, really. Dial pad, lightweight, perfect for me. And never be in a situation where I took the dumbphone and then regretted it or vice versa.
The blogosphere is already making fun of this as a gimmick. Maybe it is. But I like the watch idea too, I'm into gadgets and gimmicks.
I can picture a client looking at me funny with a watch, but not so much the Mini.
I don't know, but I find it very interesting, and if it hits and works, seems like more choice to me.
Don't get me wrong, EM. You know me and my fondness of accessories, especially OEM ones that work seemlessly with my smartphone. It's just this product in particular just seems so odd. It's almost like the concept of the Padfone, without being able to dock it in the actual Smartphone and with less capabilities.
Love the G-Note series!
