We couldn't really call ourselves Engadget without faithfully bringing you every wearable computer that we spot, so we feel that it's our duty to show you the Eurotech WWPC (wrist-worn PC) for Dick Tracy-like Linux or Windows CE action- even though it is merely a concept for now. Obviously designed for jobsite use and not to please the fashionista set, the WWPC features (in someone's imagination, at least) WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, a 3.5-inch TFT touchscreen, 64MB RAM/32MB ROM/SD slot for expansion, as well as an unspecified "low-power CPU." Of course you also get built-in speakers and wireless headset support, so your employer can chew you out after GPS narcs you out for those daily three-hour "siestas" behind the warehouse, and an eight-hour battery life from dual 2-cell Li-polymer rechargeable batteries, that should last most of your shift. Since this is just a speculative project for now, we'd also like to speculate and guess that these toys should start appearing on the shelves next month for under $100.
