Apple is rumored of building Bluetooth Smart Watch, according to report from tech.163. Apple would be working with Intel in order to create the smart watch, with 1.5-inch PMOLED display made by RiTDisplays with ITO-coated glass. Sources close the subject also told to tech.163 that the expected launch of the Smart Watch would be first half of the next year.
The rumored Smart Watch would work together with iPhone. At the moment we can’t confirm or deny this rumor, and if the Apple is making the Smart Watch, it would take a while before it will hit the stores. It’s also proven that “smart watches” can be highly profitable, you might remember Pebble and MetaWatch. We’ll have to wait and see where will this rumor take us, but i think that in the future many people will have Apple watch on their wrist.

Yesterdays departure of Nokia’s imaging executive Damian Dinning surprise many, but now we all know where he’s headed. Damian Dinning gave exclusive interview to PureViewClub, and told them that he’s headed to Jaguar Land Rover. He also told that other than photography, cars are another life long passion. Also his family played big role in his departure, as Damian concentrating many of it’s strategic roles in Finland, he wanted to stay with his family in UK. He also stated that the whole team is behind Nokia’s camera tech, and not just one person.
As reported by a few, the work area I am best known for, imaging, is the result of a huge and massively talented pool of people. I have often felt embarrassed by the media attention I received knowing that whilst I am proud of my own contributions and the forward looking guidance I have strived to provide the teams, there are a lot of unsung heroes!
Huge thanks to those who were extremely kind in their words of support today. Full comment from me here: pureviewclub.com/2012/7882
