[CES 2014] The Neptune Pine smartwatch was a Kickstarter project that garnered attention in February last year, and it did pass the $100,000 Kickstarter funding goal in a jiffy, carrying the promise to be the first full standalone Android smartwatch. We are talking about having a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor embedded within, in addition to carrying a camera, as well as texting and calling from your wrist. CES 2014 is the platform where an early prototype of the Neptune Pine has been made available to the masses, so do not be surprised to see how large it would actually look when you have it nestled nicely on your wrist.
When you take it into consideration with other smartwatches at the moment, such as the Pebble and Samsung Galaxy Gear will only be able to live up to their full potential whenever it remains tethered to a smartphone. Hardware specifications of the Neptune Pine include a 2.4” display with a 320 x 240 pixels resolution, a 5MP main shooter at the back, and a microSIM slot to let you use it like a regular smartphone, all of it running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. One thing’s for sure, the disproportionate size of the Neptune Pine on one’s wrist, especially smaller ones, might be a turn off. What do you think of the Neptune Pine? [Company Page]
