Already know you all, but just in case, we say it you: now the cool are smart watches and other “wearable technology”. The rumor mill says that Apple is working on one, Google and Samsung, and now the latest to join the party is Microsoft, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper sources are executives of manufacturers of components. It seems, those of Redmond would have asked a possible clock components (screens of 1.5 inches), and some would have met with the Research Department which is carrying the theme. Is not yet known if it will come out of the research phase and become a real product.
As always, Microsoft has not made any comment on the matter. The idea seems good, most of all for not arriving late to a market that could be very helpful; but personally I don’t see too much sense to a possible intelligent clock having more smart phones.
