This can't possibly be a shock to anyone — the damn things were selling for $80 last we heard — but Fossil is quietly killing off its Wrist PDA line of Palm-powered PDA watches. It was bad enough that it literally took them years to bring the watches to market (the watch was first announced in 2002, but only hit stores earlier this year), but when they watches finally did arrive Fossil discovered that hardly anyone wanted a wearable PDA with a tiny screen and hardly any memory. Why won't someone just invent a Bluetooth-enabled watch that doubles as a smartphone or PDA companion?
