Samsung patent app details wristwatch / cellphone hybrid

Generally speaking, mishmash concepts involving a cellphone and just about anything wearable haven't exactly taken off, but if Maxwell Smart can do it, why can't Samsung? In a recent patent application from the firm, a "wrist wearable type portable terminal" is described, which essentially acts as a wrist strap that functions as a cellphone holster. Granted, the idea could be problematic in a myriad ways -- leading to public humiliation and a lack of broad compatibility with mobiles for starters -- but we can't fault 'em for trying.
