Palm OS Fossil Wrist Watch to Return
UPDATED New reports place the Fossil Palm OS Wristwatch preparing for a comeback next year. An updated version of the wristwatch PDA is planned to debut during the consumer electronics show in January.
Fossil first licensed the Palm OS back in November 2002. At the time, Fossil announced they would introduce the world's first Palm OS Powered watch called the WRIST PDA. It would include a grayscale touch screen and run a fully functional version Palm OS 4. It debuted at one of the last COMDEX shows the same year and was named best of show. After a long stint of delays and setbacks through 2003, the wristwatch was indefinitely postponed in September 2003.
Fossil was adamant that the watch was delayed and not cancelled. The company claimed problems with "production quality" as the reason for postponement.
A new report on i4u.com claims the Wrist PDA will be revised and relaunched during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2005. Representatives from PalmSource have also stated that the licensee is expected to return in 2005.
I4U has removed the article at the request of Fossil. Fossil states the information from the site was posted erroneously.
