The concept is pretty awesome, this small touch screen bluetooth screen that can be worn as a watch can interact with any of your Bluetooth enabled Android devices, it’s got an SDK for app developers to add Bluetooth remote functionality for their apps. I’m hoping someone make remote controlling for VOIP apps, calling contacts, and other useful Android apps on your smartphone or tablet.

According to Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Holt and according to a source reported by BusinessInsider.com, Microsoft is investing very heavily on accelerating their support of Windows for ARM Powered devices, targeting a release of full Windows 8 Tablets before Christmas even. This could be closer than what some people think.
At CES last month, Microsoft showed Windows 8 at their keynote (using “existing” UI) running on current Texas Instruments OMAP4430, Qualcomm Dual-core MSM8660 and Nvidia Tegra2. For sure, Windows 8 could use the next gen ARM Processors coming out later in the year even better for full performance, such as the TI OMAP4440, Qualcomm Quad-core and Nvidia Tegra3 Kal-el, all coming out in consumer devices on the market before the end of the year already.
The 468Mhz ST-Ericsson U6715 ARM9 processor includes current support for Android 2.1, to be upgradable to Android 2.2 in around a month, they use tricks like a Virtualization layers on top of Android to speed some things up for the user experience on this low end hardware. Yet, the experience is very impressive considering the potential $100 unlocked retail price for these Android smartphone devices such as the K-Touch W606, Acer beTouch E130, Coolpad W711 and the GHT Maestro, they can all include 3G support and good battery runtime.
