I’m Touchscreen Watch Is Awkwardly Named

I’m Touchscreen Watch Is Awkwardly Named

By David Ponce

So that’s its name: “I’m.” We know, weird. Nevertheless, it’s a watch with a curved 1.5-inch, 240 x 240 TFT screen with capacitive touch capabilities. The device links up to your phone via Bluetooth for caller ID information as well as data tethering. You can also use it to do the kinds of things that fishing around in your pocket for your phone might be inconvenient. Like getting quick stock quotes, getting a preview of an email, viewing an image gallery, etc. It’s alleged to be running a modified version of Android 1.6 and has 64MB RAM and 4GB storage. It’s a bit like those watches made up of an iPod nano, only with phone features.

The watches start at €249 ($342USD) and go up from there, as there appear to be versions blinged out with some gold and jewels, although these are on pre-order at the moment. However, very little is known about this company so we’re not going to give you any go-aheads until actual products are in customers’ hands. We won’t lie though: we’d be very disappointed if any of our readers has €10,000 to spend on a fancy watch. And yes, some models cost that much.
