tonight I was at an event where someone demonstrated for me a 
sony-ericsson handset that uses bluetooth to communicate caller-id 
information to the sony-ericsson watch.  I don't know what particular 
profile is being used for this application (obex push?) but it got me 
thinking that if the watch uses  a standard protocol, then maybe this 
watch could be made  to work with the Nokia N800 (lets call this product 
interoperability). The nice thing about the notification on a watch is  
that it is less obtrusive/disruptive when in a meeting than pulling out 
a mobile phone or, say an Internet tablet to see who is trying to 
contact you and whether or not you need to respond immediately. One 
complication for such a scenario is that the N800 would have to, using 
bluetooth, simultaneously communicate with a mobile phone (in the case 
where it is getting its Internet access from that source) and with the 
watch for the purpose of sending  notifications.

I am looking forward to the day when Nokia has a "killer" email client 
and having the notification of important emails on a watch like this 
(without having to purchase the corresponding handset from 
sony-ericsson)  would be a nice feature. And hey, the watch on the 
surface is analog not digital so it would be doubly unobtrusive for the 

So the basic idea is this:

    Mobile phone with broadband access from whomever<===>Nokia 800 to 
get email<====>Analog watch with Bluetooth
