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."

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
