2013, A Year to Watch or Ear to Watch?
Lately I’ve been thinking, “Whats with these mobile manufacturers all of sudden?” After Apple reported that they’re working on the iwatch, it seems that many other mobile companies are getting tempted to manufacture watches which can be a good substitute for the phones. I’ve read Samsung’s developing a new wristwatch. Does this mean that the Apple – Samsung war has begun?
After the rumors of Apple releasing the iwatch, Samsung follows Apple. Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business said, “We’ve been preparing the watch product for so long. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.” Lee made no comments on the features of the watch. I am curious to know what would be the difference between Apple and Samsung watches.
Samsung has been a tough competition for the Apple after releasing a series of Galaxy smart phones particularly S3 & now S4. Apple should start searching for some new ways to stay ahead of the competition. Anyway, I’m sure that it would be fascinating for the consumers to buy a watch that offers everything that a Smart phone does.
Apple may soon launch the iWatch in this year, while we would have to still wait for about an year to see Samsung’s watch. I was otherwise tempted to own an Apple iwatch. But with Samsung’s disclosure that they are also planning to launch a watch too, I will sure be looking on the features of both and compare them; and then obviously go for the best. But I guess I’d have to wait for the release if I’ve to choose the better one.
Anyways mobile companies are switching to watch production or may be mobiles are getting redesigned to watches, ultimately signaling the beginning of a new race or may be the cold old war.
