Here Comes the BlackBerry Watch

Wristwatch isn't an official BlackBerry product, but it will let you check the messages arriving on your BlackBerry phone.

Say hello to inhuman business productivity: here comes the BlackBerry watch.

The BlackBerry watch is being created by inPulse for use with RIM's BlackBerry phones. CrackBerry.com stresses that the Bluetooth-connected inPulse SmartWatch (as it's being called at the moment) is not produced by BlackBerry, but rather it is a peripheral accessory.

Citing an unnamed source, CrackBerry.com uncovered these two images and a few specs, including:

  • It's designed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company.
  • It features an OLED screen for clearly visible text and solid battery life.
  • It shows notifications and message previews.

Pretty simple stuff, but the inPulse SmartWatch could prove mighty handy for fast-paced business junkies. The second a message comes through, you'll not only know it by the vibration of your phone; you'll see it lit up on your wrist. That mean you can discreetly keep track of what's happening back at the office during Thanksgiving dinner!

The inPulse SmartWatch does not yet have a price or an availability date, but CrackBerry claims it's coming "soon."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
