Apple developing an iWatch?

28 December 2012

If you believe the rumours, Apple are developing a 'smart watch'. If Apple's maps are anything to go by, these watches could tell you anything (just like their iPhones that didn't know anything about British Summer Time and the like).

According to claims, this new smart watch will be an Apple/Intel tagteam and that the watch will be Bluetooth-enabled and have a 1.5-inch touchscreen and work with the iPhone.

Presumably, this means you'll be able to make calls and perform various operations via your watch.

Another rumour is that Apple have paid the Swiss Federal Railway a huge amount of money so they could use its trademark in iOS (around $21 million for the licence, apparently).

So, an iWatch could well be a thing. What do you make of that? Does the world need smartwatches?

    Wow its seems to be awesome. Peoples will see a new technology. and if apple spent a lot of money on this watch's then it should be a new ara in the technology development. But one bad thing about that is it requires iphone to complete its functionality?

    Why would Apple team up with Intel - who've never even MADE a low-power mobile chip - when Apple has its own Ax chip fab anyway? I think somebody's leg is being pulled.

    NEXT YEAR Apple sues world for making watches that look JUST LIKE THEIRS!! and claim theirs was first.

    Il post this again as it was instantly removed as it appears freedom of speech isnt allowed by andy dawson eh.. Well all… i had never frequented this site befor early december 2012 but without any doubt i have come to the conclusion that Andy Dawson is a totally biased uninformed arrogant little tit that as suggested does indeed copy and paste real journalists findings and work. How can you Andy Dawson possibly axpect to be taken seriously on any aganda whatsoever??
