Will A Product Like Handsolo Ever Be Real?

I recently came across the following “fake” product:

While clearly this is a fake product by Qualcomm to gather some attention–fat chance, considering their business practices seem to involve the courts more often than real, useful products these days–it does raise some questions about not only how practical it would be to embed a mobile phone in your hand.

The first thing that comes to mind is: caller ID. How would you know who’s calling? What about dialing? What about texting? What about the cellular radio and antenna?

Maybe I’m thinking about this too much. Maybe those things don’t matter to most people. Maybe it’s like the question I always ask myself in Science Fiction movies: where do these people go to the bathroom? Maybe I should just STFU and suspend my belief for a moment. What do you think?
