Android devices seem to be getting bigger and bigger which is good if you like huge mobile devices and even bigger tablets. But to be “take everywhere”, devices need to get smaller.
Think the size of an iPod nano that many have taken to wearing on their wrists like a watch.
WIMM is building a platform based on devices this size. They are squeezing Android onto super-small devices with 160×160 screens with Bluetooth and Wifi tagging along. The devices can be worn as watches, on a belt or bag strap or even on the neck. Not only will these thigs be able to play media, they’ll also be able to pull feeds from RSS, Twitter and Social media Sites. They’ll also make great universal remotes for not only entertainment centers but anything else you can think of.
I like this idea a lot but the devil is in the details and execution is paramount.
