All signs suggest that the next generation of mobile devices will see the usual competitors in a new field, the smart watch. There is nothing official, but Google may also join Apple and Samsung in competition!
Apple iWatch is expected to be presented in the coming months, of which the Internet is literally flooded with rumors and concepts. A few days ago rumors were born on a hypothetical smart watch being in production by the bitter enemy of Cupertino.
During the morning, The Financial Times reported a new rumor based on possibility of the entrance of Google in competition with its own specific product, probably based on Android operating system. The project, according to the usual internal sources that have issued the news, would deviate widely from the declination of smart watch designed by Samsung.
The Financial Times reports:
“While Glass is being created in its X Lab, home to experimental “moonshot” projects such as the self-driving car, Google’s smart watch is being developed by its Android unit, according to a person briefed on the project, to act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system. The project is separate from Samsung’s efforts, the source said, although there is no indication of when it might launch.”
After all, Google already holds a number of patents, which can be utilized in future to produce the smart watch. The device will be integrated with the voice assistant Google Now and could be presented at the upcoming Google I / O in May.
According to some analysts, such giant challenges could generate revenue analysts up to 60 billion dollars.
