I Want a SPOT Watch

Lured by the promise of Dick Tracy-like wristwatch functionality and two Microsoft meetings about the technology, I'm eagerly trying to purchase a Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT) watch before the holidays. Alas, they're nowhere to be found, and I'm curious why the watchmakers would miss such a crucial selling period, only to possibly release the watches less than a month later, probably at Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2004 (to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in mid-January). Seriously, I'd shell out the dough right now. Why aren't they ready yet?
