Editor's Note: This thing should look much better than any LCD-based device due to its OLED display. While not as efficient as the e-ink watch I recently reviewed in low-power operation (e-ink is bistable), the 'BlackBerry' watch should have decent battery life.
(Crackberry.com) - Remember that story about a Bluetooth BlackBerry Watch accessory being in the works? In case you were doubting it, today we can say with certainty that it's happening, it's getting announced soon, and what you're looking at is an actual rendering of the real deal.
Key features we've been told so far about the BlackBerry-connected smartwatch by our source:
- it has been designed specifically for use with BlackBerry Smartphones from the ground up - developed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company
- it features an OLED screen that we hear is "big, bright and beautiful" and optimized for displaying text clearly, and thanks to OLED has solid battery life
- it's designed to show you notifications and previews of messages arriving on your BlackBerry
- judging by the filename of the photos as they were sent in to us, we're thinking it's going to be branded the inPulse smartwatch
