It's nice to see some Android accessories beginning to appear. Mountain Bikers should find this useful however, I'm hoping it will display the caller name and not the number.

This isn't something I'd be looking to buy unless it comes in a very good price point and I'm feeling partcular friendly and rich that day.

Interesting though. I think I'd rather see all those features on a bluetooth watch, maybe an analogue watch with translucent hands so you can still clearly see the face which is the OLED screen, and when the screen goes to sleep the hands are more clearly visible again. I'd buy that.

Gotta give it to them for being creative with android though. This is cleverly made with android specifically in mind.

Sure looks like it can be used as a watch considering the photos show a wrist strap.

I think the issue with the old BT watches of was that it had 2 power supplies, one for the analog watch and another for the functions... I guess they felt that an OLED analog display would be more power efficient and cost effective than a mechanical watch with a display under it.

Just one thought, the liveview is BT and my mw600 is BT and liveview can controll the music but can the phone handle 2 BT connections at the same time? (wich i guess you will do most of the time when you are using your phone, for talking/music) if not, this product is a waste of time
