At first I thought of it as another iPod nano watch kit – something similar to TikTok and LunaTik if not exactly the same but it is not an-iPod-in-a-new-kit and the software is based on Android:
The most common operating system in the world with performances never seen before on such a small device. Intuitive interface, rock-solid stability and amazing functionalities. The operating system is the heart of i’mWatch. A surprising result that will leave you lost for words. It only takes a few steps to learn how to use it: it is simple and intuitive. Just touch, drag, swipe or pinch to use all the functionalities or open any of the apps, preinstalled or downloadable from i’mstore.
i’mWatch displays time both analogue and digital formats. It can receive calls showing caller’s name and number and enables you to decide whether to accept or decline a call without reaching to your phone on the pocket. It can be used as speaker phone, view/receive text and email messages, check weather forecast, and catch-up (via notifications) with friends on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare besides listening to music and watching photos of your loved ones.
i’mWatch is touch enabled and multitasking. It comes with 1.54” (diagonal) colour TFT display with 240×240 pixel resolution (220 pixel per inch), 64MB RAM and 4GB Flash Drive. It has built-in 3.5 mm headphone, connection and power minijack, microphone and a speaker. The watch is compatible with iPhone 4, Android devices and Black Berry with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR wireless technologies. The watch is available in variety of colors and as jewelry with – designed and assembled in Italy.
Palm Pre is to launch on June 6th (USA). This is the cell phone I’d been waiting for … since 2003 to be exact when I actually started using Palm PDA. I like iPhone, I liked HTC Touch HD but there was something that told me to wait. Wait for something from Palm!
While most of the competition around iPhone was focused making ‘good looking’ devices so far, Palm Pre is the only one that came up with it’s own Web OS, excellent usability and multitasking that took the game well beyond iPhone.
I might not be able to join the queue straight away since the UK release date is not yet confirmed but this is something I’d like to get hold of pretty soon. I like the fact that iPhone finally has a competition!
