Better to just have an empty pda/smartphone, especially now that winter is coming
Well look at it positively, if your key are attached to your cell phone, you'd have to stop to take a call. Considering that it's becoming illegal you'd have a great solution right there.

They seem to like to use really small "spokes-models" in that part of the world for some reason, could just be that the genetic demographics tend to be smaller compared to their Western counterparts.

I think this is just a proof-of-concept, isn't it? I don't know if they're even thinking about production devices yet, let alone pricing.

I guess I asked a dumb question. Yes too early to tell. The size of the lady is no surprise. My girlfriend is Japanese and I lived in Japan for a few years. Some of the women are smaller.

Anyways. I hope it is on the market soon. i like the look of the Wordgear one by Matsushita/Panasonic but seems limiting from the thread I am reading about it. Still with my Acern311......

Is it not rechargable? I don't like the idea of having to buy a new battery every couple of books.

This one isn't, but I think it's a proof of concept rather than something intended as a marketable product.

You can get rechargeable buttons, and it has usb so you could ultimately plug a usb powerpack.

Aside from the size of the model, the fact that she's holding the unit at arm's length in front of her changes the perceived relative size of the unit vs. the model, too.
