Get ready to see more people talking to their wrists

For those of you that want to channel your inner Dick Tracy, Samsung announced this week that its new Gear S smartwatch will be available on all four major wireless carriers in the United States this fall. That means that Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile customers will all have access to the device.
 
For those that need a refresher, the Gear S includes an onboard SIM slot that allows it to make calls and receive/transmit data over 2G/3G networks. It also includes a 2” AMOLED display with a resolution of 360x480 (making it larger with a higher PPI than the typical Android Wear-based smartwatches on the market). The Gear S also includes a 1GHz dual-core processor, Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11n, A-GPS, and IP67 water/dust resistance capabilities.

 
The Gear S runs the lightweight Tizen operating system and has a 300 mAh battery that’s rated for around two days of typical use.
 
Unfortunately, an exact release date (Samsung previously mentioned the month of October) and official pricing has yet to be announced.
