OK, I'll fully admit that I am an RF guy when it comes to APRS.  I am a limited internet-APRS connection user, however, there is a new product coming out that I would love to see used for some kind of APRS display with a smartphone.  It's called the Pebble:

Watch the video for details.  At the end they mention an end user SDK that can let you send and receive data to/from the watch via an Android or iPhone.  Even though it pretty much takes radio out of the equation, I would love to see some kind of gateway on the phone that would allow you to display APRS station info, messages, WX data and even respond to message through this watch.  I wonder if these functions could be integrated into APRSDroid on Android or IBCNU (I think that is the iPhone flavor) to support this?

Just thought some here might find this as an interesting application!
