Neptune’s Pine isn’t a smartwatch; it’s a smartphone that sits on your wrist

When designing a smartwatch, the general trend is to start with a basic timepiece and add features until physics or budgets get in the way. That’s not the approach taken by 19-year-old Canadian Simon Tian when he developed the Pine by Neptune. Instead, he took to Kickstarter with the idea of just shrinking a last-generation smartphone down to watch-size proportions. The result isn’t really a watch in any sense of the word, but considering that the Pine raised eight times its goal on Kickstarter, there’s clearly a desire for this sort of hardware. We got to spend some time with it at CES and want to share some impressions with you.  by engadget
