Most digital device makers have caught up to the smartwatch concept right now. Nokia that is seeking to reclaim its lost turf as a phone maker of repute with its new range of Lumia devices has also taken up the smartwatch concept in a big way. Smartwatches are a part of the smart wearable gadgets that device makers are actively pursuing right now and such a device from the Finnish phonemaker can be expected to be released towards the third quarter of next year. This talk has been making the rounds for quite some time now.
Meanwhile, now that Nokia has been taken over by Microsoft, the next logical conclusion or question is whether the smartwatch would be a Nokia product or a Microsoft product. It is only the handset division of Nokia that is being taken over by Microsoft thought it’s quite likely for the smartwatch to be a Nokia product upon release. In any case, the said smartwatch is expected to be closely tied to the Lumia range of smartphones.
Axel Meyer and Peter Skillman who head the Nokia division of emerging devices are said to the brains behind this smartwatch device. Amongst the interesting features that are being speculated to be present on the smartwatch is the Nokia Morph feature.
That Nokia would be coming up with such a device is not new but this time the date of third quarter being added to the bit of information makes the overall picture of the device a more real one. 2014 could therefore see both the Nokia and the Apple smartwatch being launched in the market.
