Some fellow bloggers have recently pointed out that MSN Direct is looking for some creative developers to build applications for the Microsoft Smart Watch (the SPOT watch). Channel 9 even has a video about the SPOT watch. Thanks to mikehall for pointing this out on his blog.
Regarding the applications that you (the cool developer) can build: Users will download a new application in one of the following ways:
· PC Channel. The application and any related data is downloaded to the watch using a USB cable connected to the user’s PC.
· Over-the-air (OTA). The application is downloaded to the watch using the DirectBand network. Following the download, this standalone application (for example, a game or watch face) does not require any additional data from the network.
