While it may seem that this device is the first in a long line of smartwatches made for the greater world of Android, it would appear here that Samsung started small and marketed big. This device is not the do-all smartwatch you may be dreaming of - instead, it may just be the Samsung-specific smartwatch you'll find you need.

This morning the folks at AT&T have announced that they'll be first on the block with Samsung Galaxy Gear pre-orders, this being the latest in Samsung's efforts to bring a smartwatch to the masses.
