File-It-Under: Intelligent Time Pieces!~
Would you purchase a watch that has Bluetooth capability,touch screen display,ability to check your emails,listen to music,view Twitter etc.Well apparently we have a watch with that capability that exist,well sort of its still in the prototype stage.The I'm Smartwatch (yes the name of the watch is "I'm") .This watch is said to have the functionality of a iPhone that you can wear on your wrist.Now I've seen watches like this appear on the web,in fact if you look at the iPod Nano watches you know this is pretty much future of time pieces.
How intelligent is this watch,it comes rich with a lot of features,a IMX233 application processor with 64MB of RAM and 4GB of flash storage for media,your music,video,etc.It comes packed with Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR for your smartphone tethering,as far as power,it comes with 450mAh Li-Po battery,with three hours of speakerphone time,up to two days in standby.On the audio front,it has mic and a speaker,headphone jack.The I'm Watch is built around a custom version Android version 1.6.Finally,the watch features a 1.54-inch curved capacitive TFT LCD display,with 240 x 240 pixel resolution.I might add that there is no cellular radio present,nor is there a SIM slot.
The watch is set to be released to the market January of 2012,there is no exact launch date.Check out the video render on the bottom.
