Plenty more iWatch concepts are circulating around the web as watchers increasingly believe Apple will some day enter the wearable computing space. Patent filings indicate as much and last December The New York Times reported that Apple was working on a Siri-controlled add-on that interfaces with the iPhone. And now, the German blog Mobile Geeks relays a Chinese site rumor claiming Apple and Intel are collaborating on an Apple-branded Bluetooth smart watch set for releases some time next year…
Both German-language MobileGeeks and Chinese-language news site Tech163.com pass along a report from iphone.tgbus.com, which basically boils down to Apple and Intel collaborating as we speak on a Bluetooth smart watch device with a 1.5-inch OLED display from RITEK subsidiary RiTdisplay.
“The device in question has a 1.5 OLED display with indium tin oxide, or ITO coated glass”, according to the translation provided by MobileGeeks.
While the notion of a smart watch that connects to your iPhone, iPad or Mac wirelessly, with Siri voice commands and apps and what not – sounds futuristic enough, this rumor is a bit crazy. However, what can we see in early 2013, there should be something, just wait and see.
