PC Magazine has handed out their blue ribbons for best of breed and best of show for COMDEX Las Vegas. Fossil picks up a win for their new Palm OS watch, beating out the likes of the HP iPAQ h5450 and the Nokia 3650.
Fossil won in the mobile device group and was obviously quite pleased with the news. Perhaps the odd thing about the group of finialists is the absence of Dell. I think the impact of the new Axim Line is more significant than any of the other finalists. As you can tell, I did not have a vote.
