We've seen our share of cellphone watches (here, here, here, and here), but this Van Der Led WM2 cellphone watch is probably the first and only one we'd actually wear ourselves. There's a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 1.3-inch screen, a dialpad on the strap, 1GB storage for MP3/MP4 files, and stereo Bluetooth support. The only downside is its $471 price tag, but anyone who's in the market for a cellphone watch probably has that kind of spare cash to throw around and obviously doesn't care about how other people perceive them.

DISCUSSION

@blackwand: Consumer trends 101 bro. Example: In chronological order starting in the 70s TV enclosures were made of 1) wood 2) black plastic with fake wood 3) Matt Black plastic 4) Matt Silver plastic 5) Gloss black plastic etc etc. People like the way the iPhone looks so other manufacturers create products that mimic that style. Same reason why CPU towers were beige for 15 years. People expected them to be like that and liked them that way... or at least were apathetic to it. Consumer trends changed and now you can get them to look like anything you want: [gizmodo.com]

The iPhone look is in right now... I'm not pushing MAc.. I'm a PC fanboy but that's the way it is I guess.
