Smart phones have been the rave for a long time now, and practically everyone has one. But did you ever think about having another device that has a similar function to a smart phone and yet is much smaller and fits on your wrist?
Yup, one of those futuristic wristwatches have been developed, and they look very promising. Dubbed i’mWatch, the device is Android-based and offers a host of features that is enough to make any gadget enthusiast very excited. No one can deny that Android is a powerful platform, and this is perhaps the first time that it has been installed on a device such as a watch.
Having Android installed on i’mWatch opens up so many doors. Think apps, apps, and more apps. The watch comes with a bundled set of apps, so you really don’t have to use another gadget if you don’t want to. The watch has a tiny screen – a mere 1.54-inch TFT display, but it should serve its purpose when you are on the go or you just need to do a quick check. Call, send and receive text messages, check e-mail, go on Facebook, go on Twitter, and so on.
Oh, and it has Bluetooth connectivity so that your enabled devices can communicated with each other. Tiny as this watch may be, it does have decent specs for its size and purpose: Freescale ARM9 IMX233 CPU, 64 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage. It will definitely not be your main device, but for some who does not wear a watch, I would gladly change my habits for this baby!
There are two varieties of the i’mWatch: the i’m Color and the i’m Jewel. The former offers several cool colors – red, blue, green, black, white, orange, and pink. The latter is for those who want something classier – yellow gold, pink gold, white gold and diamonds, titanium, black gold, and special.
The watches are already catching on, in spite of the fact that they are not available as of yet. You can preorder from the i’mWatch web site, for 249 euros for the i’m Color watches. After June 30, though, the preorder prices for i’m Color watches go up to 299 euros, so I suggest sending in your preorder NOW! For the i’m Jewel watches, prices range from 599 euros to 11,999 euros.
