"IBM said Monday that researchers are running the Linux operating system on a prototype wristwatch device, in a test designed to show that Linux can be used as the basic software on the smallest devices."
"Designed to communicate wirelessly with PCs, cell phones and other wireless-enabled devices, the 'smart watch' will have the ability to view condensed email messages and directly receive pager-like messages," IBM said."
"However, IBM (stock: IBM) does not have plans to commercialize the Linux watch itself, a spokeswoman said."
