    sunkast,

    If the watch had a Wifi receiver, using the watch's Bluetooth connection to the Blackberry, a non-Wifi Blackberry would be Wifi enabled. Would probably require an App but it'd work. Think GPS puck.

    Ohhh okay now I understand what you are saying. But I still think it sounds silly. Though to me still doesn't make sense considering you'd be piping a newer, better tech through very inferior tech. Kind of like trying to stick a quarter in a slot made for a penny.

    I suppose that would work but how good would the connection be. I would imagine the signal wouldn't be the greatest concidering the size that the receiver would be and then the signal being sent through bluetooth.

    @sunkast,

    Point well taken about quarter and penny. Yeah, I'm not really a techie but I looked at the current Bluetooth specs and the data transfer rate would be slow. But, is Bluetooth 2.0 faster than EVDO Rev A.?

    All,

    How cool would it be if the watch could take themes and update Plazmic to make themes for the watch? Lots of possibilities.

    Themes would be nice however since RIM isn't actually making it I don't think it will happen.

    There is no logic in this statement. lol. What hes trying to say is that if the watch had wifi built into it than he's saying the bluetooth connection would act as a bridge connection and add Wifi capability to non-wifi blackberrys.

    This would require the watches software to facilitate this or some kind of API to interface with the blackberry browser, or even a browser specifically for this functionality. Also, RIM didn't design this watch. It's a 3rd party company that works closely with RIM.

    Soooo :



    *****Internet***** > ****Wifi AP**** > ***inPulse Watch Built-In Wifi Card*** > **Watch Bluetooth connection to your BB** > *New Software* = Wifi on your "Non-Wifi" BB


    Also..... Never going to happen. LOL
