pros:, Jorje Alejandro, A watch phone replaces two devices: a wrist watch and a cellphone, so there’s less luggage to carry arround in your pockets It usually comes with a Bluetooth headset in the package, making it almost usable on a daily basis It’s easier to see if you have any missed calls or SMS messages A watch phone is always in reach, so you won’t miss a call or new message (this can also be regarded as a weak point, in case you don’t want to be reached). The alarm function will also be really loud as it’s closed to the ear, so you won’t fall asleep anymore in the morning when you have to go to work., You get it all, a cell phone, mp3 player, video player, digital and video camera., Ted DiPerna
cons:, A watch phone’s size is much bigger than a normal wrist watch, making it not a fashion statement and hard to match with your clothes Because it weights almost as much as a phone it’s hard to wear it all day long, and your hand gets tired after a few hours The screen for the screen is very small, thus lacking precision so that many times the menu options are hard to access, even with the stylus Always phone functions are mostly basic (Calls, Messaging, Phonebook), so if you need more than that you won’t be satisfied with a watch phone Having a Bluetooth headset paired to the watch phone means there’s another gadget that needs to be charged regularly. Also it increases the chance (actually doubles it) that one of them runs out of juice at one time and you don’t want to use the speaker as everyone near you can hear what you have to say. Every watch phone uses its special operating system, so not much of support here from software developers, so even if you can install additional applications the offers is very limited.
Features: Unlocked GSM phone – in a watch! Touchscreen with limited handwriting recognition Camera Full MMS/GPRS support MSRP of $199.99, http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/02/19/review-kempler-strauss-w-phone-watch/, Ted DiPerna
This phone is small and light. Weighs about 2.5 oz. Is 57mm long, about as big as a standard watch. The screen is about an inch on each side and there is a small speaker in the band. A microphone hides on the side. On the top of the watch is an odd little VGA camera that can take JPEGs at 640×480 and video at 128×104 (!!). It also plays back MPEG4s and most audio files.
Includes just one game that involves catching fruit in a basket, definately not comparable to gaming devices-at least not yet.
Can make and take calls with a Bluetooth headset with good sound quality. Make calls by talking into your wrist and listen from the built-in speaker.
Just like a futuristic sci-fi movie. Or time-traveled backward and you're Dick Tracy.
You'll need a SIM card from a GSM carrier, either AT&T or T-Mobile.

Disclaimer: 3G network not available in all areas
Disclaimer: Referenced speeds require an HSDPA 3.6Mbps / HSUPA capable device with Receive Diversity and/or Equalizer. BroadbandConnect speed claims based on our network tests without compression using 3MB data files. 3G devices not enabled with HSUPA support typical upload speeds of 220-320kbps based on our network tests without compression using 500KB data files for upload. Actual throughput speed varies.
Verizon Wireless is also making headway towards getting its 4G network in place, but they're going a different route than Sprint by selecting LTE technology
their 4G LTE network will be roughly similar to its current 3G network in terms of size.
their network has seen peek download speeds of around 50Mbps, which is huge, but expect real-life download speeds of probably around 10Mbps, http://www.techreviewsource.com/content/view/411/1/
The question is what else do you use your phone for? If you are into email, web surfing and using applications, network speed might be something to consider. Obviously the importance of speed will depend how much time you spend using these non-phone talking functions. Diana Turner, http://www.helium.com/items/1762064-att-v-verizon, In this instance, speed is a bonus that AT&T holds over Verizon. Diana Turner, http://www.helium.com/items/1762064-att-v-verizon
Linux, Linux OS supports more processors than any other operating system on the market, http://communication.howstuffworks.com/smartphone2.htm
Moorestown, Nearly every smartphone on the market contains an application processor based on processor cores from ARM. (ARM says 2.5 billion chips with ARM cores shipped last year, and the typical phone has at least two.) ARM doesn't make chips itself; instead, it creates intellectual property in the form of designed-for-processor cores, graphics, and memory connections., http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2360152,00.asp, Moorestown is the Intel Corporation's Atom processor based system-on-a-chip that's designed for smartphones. Moorestown-ready MeeGo operating system, combining the Intel-backed Moblin and Nokia-backed Maemo mobile Linux operating systems, was announced earlier this week.

Kenya Morales, Pros: 1.)The Nexus One only weighs 130 grams and is 11.5 millimeters thick. 2.)Video can be played for well over 3 hours over Wi-Fi from YouTube in H.264 (Baseline 1.2). 3.) The screen will self adjust brightness 4.)Nexus One comes out of the gate with a beloved 5 megapixel snapper with flash. 5.You can assign your Google Voice number to the phone, and use it to make all outbound calls and text messages.
Wendy Cardenas, Cons: 1. choice of coloring -- we would have liked to see something a little more consistent as opposed to the two-tone, particularly when the choice of hues is this drab and familiar. 2. no physical camera key -- had some real trouble with those four dedicated buttons: consistently accidentally tapping them while composing an email or text message, or missing them when tapping a little too low. 3. color balance -- reds and oranges are severely blown-out and oversaturated and cannot be seen in bright light, esp. sunlight. 4. tinny loudspeaker -- unpleasant for conference calls. 5. the dated and always-underwhelming music player has undergone almost zero change, and the soft keyboard -- while better than previous models -- can still be inaccurate. http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/04/nexus-one-review/
3G, Released July 11, 2008, the iPhone 3G supports faster 3G data speeds via UMTS with 3.6 Mbps HSDPA, and assisted GPS.
3GS, improved performance, a camera with higher resolution and video capability, voice control, and support for 7.2 Mbps HSDPA downloading (but remains limited to 384 Kbps uploading as Apple has not implemented the HSPA protocol)
Original, January 2007 the first generation iPhone was released for sale to At&T users that had two-year contracts with the company., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone
