Right, but it is designed to be scalable. As long as it has a halfway decent resolution I don't foresee it being an issue. Of course some fat would have to be trimmed, but that's a given with a device the size of an ipod nano.

There's a lot of little things that I hate taking out my phone for, like finding a number, using the calculator, reading texts sometimes. It would also be good to see who's calling in situations where you can't answer the phone. Just stuff like that.
What I envison is a version of webOS that has no quick launch bar, the menu is brought up by swiping, there are still cards & multitasking, but obviously there would be a limited set of specialized apps for it. The actual watch face is a customized/expanded sort of exhibition mode which auto-launces itself after x seconds of inactivity, obviously with a button on the side to turn the screen totally off. Plus how cool would a tiny gesture/notification area be?
