Even though our lab WristPDA has long died (dead battery), it is still fondly remembered at funerals, opera houses and other places of no-phone dullness.

Robert Scoble now got wind of the concept pictured below:
new wristpda Fossil plans external screen watch for phones

This 200$ device would act as a second screen to your phone, displaying all kinds of data like incoming email, etc. The difference to the WristPDA is short and sweet: it contains no intelligence of its own…

  1. Your WristPDA has a dead battery? Why don’t you get one of McLien’s battery-mods (you can reach him @ Nexave.de and @ 1Src)? Prices are reasonable and my Abacus runs for a whole week on a single charge!

    About this”watch”: I’d buy one if they make drivers for the mobile OSes I use most: WebOS and BB-OS…

  2. Hi owl,
    thank you so much for talking back.

    The issue I have is that I don’t have the balls to do the soldering myself…

    All the best

  3. McLien did it on my watch :-)
    But there’s nothing to be afraid of, the solder-pads are pretty large…

  4. Hi owl,
    may I ask how much the upgrade was?

    All the best

  5. It was (afair) around 40 Euros – including the batteries (he fitted 2 in the watch) and a bigger backplate made out of carbon fiber and epoxy. I have pictures of it somewhere; I’ll post a link as soon as I find them…

  6. Found ‘em: http://blog.compuseum.de/?p=164
    (almost at the bottom are two pictures of my McLien’ed Abacus :-)

  7. Hi owl,
    maybe I will get in touch with him after Christmas…

    All the best
    Tam
