BlackBerry watch to hit the market soon

First published: 20-10-2009

Millions of BlackBerry fans around the world rejoice: if the latest rumours are true, then the power of the phone could be coming to your wrist in the form of a watch.

CrackBerry.com, a major proponent of the company, has posted what it claims to be pictures of a watch phone in development which is to be branded as the inPulse Smartwatch.

Instead of transferring everything from a person's mobile, however, it is instead going to show notifications for messages, emails and other items of importance such as meetings and events, making it easier to keep up to date when driving or in meetings.

There is also a lot of talk regarding how BlackBerry apps will work with the miniature offering, though no official confirmation that the watch exists has even surfaced yet.

LG first unveiled its prototype watch phone on January 8th, with Dr Skott Ahn, the president and chief executive officer of LG Mobile Communications, stating it "demonstrates LG's technological leadership, proving that we can bring all the components in today's most advanced mobile phones down to a very small scale".
