The 2009 Consumer Electronics Show was recently. I thought, finally! Somebody will come out with more Dick Tracy cell phones, one in my price range. Sadly, I was disappointed. Again.
When I was a kid, I read Dick Tracy in the funny pages. I still read the funny pages, but Dick Tracy is not in them. Anyway, Dick Tracy had a nifty two-way wrist radio. I have always thought that this was the coolest of cool. I’ve been waiting, year after year, for somebody to come out with a Dick Tracy cell phone in my price range.
As far as I’ve seen, only one came out at this year’s CES. and you can see it here.
As soon as my cell phone breaks, and as soon as the Dick Tracy cell phone price comes down to my level, I’m getting one.
I’m a woman, but I do not carry a purse. My policy for years has been that if it won’t fit in my jeans pocket then I don’t need it.
Well, I recently decided I needed a cell phone for safety, but I don’t want to carry a phone. I wear it around my neck so I don’t have to carry it or clip it to my belt, which I don’t wear.
How hard could it possibly to make a cell phone you can wear like a Dick Tracy two-way wrist radio! Why don’t all electronics firms have this style of phone?
Anyway, when I get a cell phone that has the features I want, and is able to strap onto my wrist, I’ll be visiting Windows Live Mobile every day! It would be so handy to visit my space, read the comments, write a blog for my space, read my friends’ blogs, and go to the What’s New page. It would be nice!
Chester Gould started drawing the Dick Tracy comic strip in 1931, so he showed the need for this technology years ago! Surely, we won’t have to carry a thingy around with us all day soon.
Hey, Microsoft, are you ever going to make small electronics? I would be very happy to beta test a Dick Tracy cell phone.
