Apple iWatch - After creating the iPod, iPhone, and iPad, is Apple now working on an iWatch?
A report cited by Business Insider claims that Apple has partnered with Intel to develop an iOS watch
. Supply chain sources reportedly told Chinese blog site Tech163.com that the watch would be Bluetooth-enabled and sport a 1.5-inch OLED screen
The so-called smart watch would debut sometime in the first half of next year.
Other sources have chimed in on the general concept, with Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, for one, saying he thinks wearable computing is a line that Apple might eventually get into.
And asnoted by The Next Web, the Kickstarter campaign by Pebble raised more than $10 million from people convinced of the demand for a smart watch running iOS or Android.
Based on just the one report from Tech163.com, this bit of "news" is decidedly in the rumor stage. So I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the iWatch just yet. Still, a smart watch represents another area where Apple could see heavy interest and demand.
Earlier this year, Crave readers shared with CNET their dream Apple products. The winner described his as a souped-up iPod Nano watch with futuristic features
like wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and/or NFC) and support for Siri and FaceTime. (Cnet)
