MANILA, Philippines – Is the Dick Tracy radio watch getting a 21st century reboot? Probably not. But if rumors are to be believed, we may be seeing something far more interesting than a walkie-talkie on the wrist.
According to reports from The Next Web and PCMag.com, Apple and Intel are teaming up to build a Bluetooth equipped smart wristwatch. This wristwatch would be able to connect to iPhones and iPods, or presumably any iOS device with the right capabilities.
The information was imparted by two sources from the “supply chain” to TGbus.com, a Chinese tech blog. Those same sources said the smartwatch could go live in 2013 and come with a 1.5-inch OLED display made by a Taiwanese manufacturer.
Whether the information pans out or not will depend on what 2013 has in store for us. Till then, Apple fans will want to watch out for further details. – Rappler.com
