Yep, here it is folks. As we predicted, just nine days later and from stage-right with their iPod Nano wrist watch strap comes iLoveHandles.
Or is it i Love Handles or iLove Handles or i LoveHandles? Either way, it's pretty slick and now you have something useful to do with the analogue clock lock screen Apple saw fit to include.
The iLove Handles watch strap comes complete with five adjustment holes, for a one-size fits most operational model and a cut-out for accommodating the iPod Nano's built-in clip so that you can still have it centered on the strap. Just clip your Nano on and go. But careful now, we don't think this nano will hold up as good as a Seiko or Casio on the b-ball court.
We may be seeing the first tests here of what might become Apple's first commercial Dick Tracy watch phone. From where it is now, the Nano would not need much to become a full-on phone. Maybe someone is working on that now as well. Something like an Apple Peel for Nano with iLoveHandles' strap. Better start working out that left arm. See, Apple I told you we needed the accelerometer on this one too. That way we wouldn't have to turn our arms all wonky awkward to show someone the time, we could have just angled our arms toward them and the screen would flip to show them the time in the correct orientation.
It's so inexpensive that I bet we'll see people walking down the street with 3 or 4 of these strapped to each arm like they used to do in the 80's. Now that'd be real cool. Or how about a necklace version, so we can hang it from our necks like they also used to do. The iLoveHandles wrist watch strap for Apple's iPod Nano will set you forward a mere 20 bucks.
iLoveHandles.net seems to be down now due to all of the traffic ROCKandREVIEW.com is sending them, so be sure to check back a little later and order your very own strap. You do have your new Nano, right?
