There has been some random speculation over the past few months about an upcoming BlackBerry Bluetooth watch. Kevin over @ CrackBerry managed to get some more info on it and it sounds pretty interesting. So far it looks like the watch is not made by RIM but rather by a company called inPulse. Rbrodeur spotted an image on Flickr that looks like an early prototype of the device.
So far the features looks like they break down to:
- it has been designed specifically for BlackBerry from the ground up – developed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company
- it features an OLED screen that we hear is "big, bright and beautiful" and optimized for displaying text clearly, and thanks to OLED has solid battery life
- it’s designed to show you notifications and previews of messages arriving on your BlackBerry
- judging by the filename of the photos as they were sent in to us, we’re thinking it’s going to branded the inPulse smartwatch
Personally I am not dropping my Tag for a gimmicky watch but who knows this could be popular…
