Hold The Phone, Here Comes The Smartwatch

Once upon a time, we had laptop computers; we also had cell phones. Then we decided to scrunch them together and make a smartphone. Then we thought maybe we could blend the nice touch interface of the smartphone into a bigger device and we got the tablet, and the people rejoiced and bought many things. Always looking for fresh money, sorry "markets", companies like Google, Apple, Samsung and Sony - among others - either are working on, or already have, the smartwatch. It has much of the functionality of a smartphone, but worn as a watch; these may be self-contained devices, or may be used as a wearable interface for an existing smartphone. Now, Sony actually has a "SmartWatch" branded device - so maybe we will end up calling them something else, but it certainly looks to be one of the Next Big Thing.
