Whoa doggy! I never thought RIM would seep to this level of gimmick, but low and behold they have. Okay, maybe that’s a bit unfair, but at first glance you do have to question the sanity of a Blackberry Watch.
Rumored to be called the inPulse Smartwatch (get it, the impulse to pick up your phone) , it’s actually a device that is designed to be complimentary to your Blackberry and not a stand alone cell phone, like we’ve seen from Kempler & Strauss, LG or Samsung. It’s designed to provide you with updates, such as new email, whose calling you, etc all when your Blackberry is sealed away in your laptop bag or out of reach.
Spec wise not much is known right now, but word is that it’s sporting a bright and easy to read OLED screen – touchscreen, maybe. Also, there’s no word on a release date or price, but the pics look pretty legit.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
