Apple and Intel Rumored to Team up for Smartwatch in 2013

by


No matter how you feel about Apple, you have to admit that the company did change the smartphone world when it unveiled the first iPhone 5-1/2 years ago. Apple then came back and set the tablet world on its ear with the iPad. Now it’s possible that Apple could be set to try to change the world of wristwatches.

Rumors are circulating that Apple and Intel are working on a new smartwatch product that will debut in 2013. Sources in China claim that Apple is working on smartwatch. This particular rumor helps make sense of the redesign of the iPod nano away from its watch-friendly square face, despite the popularity of wristband accessories and various Kickstarted smartwatch projects out there.

According to Chinese sources, the smartwatch would be Bluetooth enabled and have a 1.5-inch touchscreen display. The watch would be designed to work directly with the iPhone allowing users to make phone calls and perform other functions from their wrist. Other smartphone integrating watches have been on the market before and have proven unsuccessful, which makes this fertile ground for Apple to sow.

It’s worth noting that Apple rumors never cease and some products, such as an actual Apple HDTV and touchscreen iMacs, and have never materialized despite ongoing rumors.

    “Apple IPhone 5 has changed the smartphone world”. Thats got to be the stupidest thing i heard this year. On the contrary the new IPhone did not bring anything new since the 4S since all people expected the 5 and ended up with 4S. And dont come to me saying that “hey they got pretty nice hardware” cause thats something all smartphone producers did. Im not a fanboy of any company, but shame on you because you are an article writer and that means you should be impartial not write crap (no offense intended). Cheers…

    • Read and comprehend before you troll. I clearly said when the original iPhone launched 5.5 years ago. If you don’t think the iPhone changed the smartphone world, you are mistaken.

        I think the smartphone world was changed by Symbian, but the only thing the IPhone introduced altough im not sure they where first, was the touchscreen. Altough Symbian is dying it was the first mobile OS that started the whole smartphone wave.

    Dear Mike, thanks to people like you humanity is once agains saved (lol of course). The thing is, you can say whatever you like but neither the IPhone 1 made a revolutionary change. It was just nicely recieved by the american public, thats all, it had fame and Steve Jobs(RIP) did a good job on promoting it, but nothing more. Not even today can you do these: Extend your memory through a micro-sd for example, share files trough bluetooth, you cant use your favourite tune as a ringtone(without ITunes ofcourse), not to mention the pain for developers having to put up with Objective C. You pay a lot of money for restrictions and that is not in any way revolutionary. As i said i am not a fan of any producer, but congrats on the new WP8, where you can use expandable memory, share using bluetooth, use any tune for ringtones (this is just an example). Also to further emphasize the word revolutionary, this year the thing i found most appropiate with the word was the wirelles charging implemented(not by Apple) altough the ideea has its origins for Nikola Tesla. Thats all, sorry if i bored you, and keep buying overpriced dumb devices, its your choice.
