Do you think this will help Nokia?

2 out of the 3 are low spec'd. They're meant to compete with Samsung in emerging markets, but to answer your question, I don't think it will help Nokia.

Interesting how instead of the usual garish icons Samsung are now using outlined icons at typeset at exactly the same visual weight as the text. I can't possibly imagine where they appropriated that idea.

They call that a smart watch? It looks like the cheesy old digital watches that have been floating around for 30 years and worn by only the nerdiest of nerds and old goobers. Samsung won't know how to design a smart watch until Apple puts one out and they can steal the design.

That's just ridiculous. I can't imagine why someone would think was a good idea. Even the calculator watches from the 80s had the benefit of having actual keys with small divots so your pen or pencil as a pointer could make typing slightly less than completely ridiculous.

You said: "You mean 1 mm."

 

Neither of us used the word "cut", nor was that even insinuated in either of the posts. 

 

I was making a statement on how thick the watch is using the press release as a reference (source).

 

My bad, sorry. I had read they had removed 1 cm in your comment...
