Watchlets

At 2012 CES, Sony demonstrated an evidence that our customary touchphones tend to become not only bigger and bigger (as in the case of tablets and smartphones), but smaller as well — for you to stick it into the smallest pocket on your jeans, or to fix it on the wrist.

This ickle, despite its moderate size and the appearance more typical for a watch, behaves like a full-fledged tablet computer. You can do many things through the techie timepiece, including reading SMS, e-mail, or the weather; or check social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. In addition, a pop-up caller id prompt appears during incoming calls, allowing you to accept or deny.

This is already the second attempt to make use of the technology: the first was made by Sony Ericsson in the late 2010, but didn't prove successful. Let's see, maybe this time the company will be more able to fulfill consumer's needs.

In any case, given the gadget costs only $149, it can easily go even as a nice useless toy :)

Looks like we're gonna witness some competition on the 'smart watch market', because these Italian guys will certainly not like Sony occupying their position.

Well, i'm Watch may be delivered in gold and silver, with the prices soaring high above 300 bucks.
